This day was created to encourage everyone to expand and exercise their brain and use more of its potential capacity. There are many different ways to train your mind and improve your cognitive skills such as reading, word puzzles, number games, brain teasers, trivia games, riddles and word games. Learning something new is another practice that is a benefit to everyone’s brain on National Train Your Brain Day (as well as any other day).
When the question is asked to American scientists as to how much of the brain is used, the answer varies. However, many of them believe that it is only a small percentage and that there is room for expanded learning and knowledge within everyone.
