Soft wired 多動腦沒事 沒事多動腦

Thanks, Jim Huffman for recommending this

大腦可塑性(Brain Plasticity) 雖然是小時候最強,但就像肌肉一般,靠著有意識的鍛鍊還是可以回春的。讓腦子老化最快的方式就是常常坐著不動 💺

“ The brain is a learning machine, it is begging for new learning. Especially past the midpoint of life, most adult individuals are feeding it nothing but the same old stuff. And to extent which they view themselves as still learning, confusing *content acquisition* with learning, which in the context of the brain, are not the same”

活化大腦的一些具體做法(不是直翻,而是內容的濃縮):

1. Initiate some new activity, almost everyday
每天都試著做點新事,不論大小,例如選擇一條不同的路線到同一個地方

2. Seek and take delight in the positive surprise as much as possible
像個小孩般從生活中發掘小驚奇

3. Regrow your confident-self
從嘗試新挑戰中建立健康自信

4. Go out of your way to make new friends
跳脫固有圈子認識新朋友

5. Aggressivrly use you sense of happiness and pleasure to help you identify the activities that will most identify “you”
注意哪些事物活動可以讓你大笑,那是成就”你”的獨特性的強化劑

6. Go to a cultural or social event that you always thought you don’t like, and try to figure out why all the other folks like it so much
參與一些你一般認為“不是你的菜”的活動,然後試著理解活動中的其他人為什麼會喜歡。像個人類學家般沈浸,觀察,有意識地培養同理心

7. Re-define yourself
每天花點時間省思,如何能成為更好的自己,不要拘泥於“我就是這樣的人”的想法

8. Monitor and assess yourself
注意自己的變化和他人的反應,不要老是說自己老了

9. Continuously enrich your life in small and larger scales
用心豐富生活
