Finding ways to force your mind or your team members’ minds to generate ideas, solve problems or process information when you are under pressure is extremely difficult. When these situations arise, certain thinking processes are necessary to induce creative thinking. You will find these mind workouts to be highly focused, which will help your team members quickly break the mold of their old thinking processes. In addition, you will need to use the four-step creativity process: preparation, incubation, illumination and verification.

Your brain is a muscle just like any other muscle in your body. It needs to exercise frequently. When you don’t use it, its functions weaken. It will suffer a form of mental atrophy. Keeping your brain active can be compared with keeping your body physically fit and healthy. Inactivity can cause men and women to lose significant amounts of muscle and bone mass. Left unchecked, this process continues on in later years, leading to frailty. At Tufts University, research proves that strength training can turn back the clock and make our bodies more physically and metabolically youthful. Keeping your brain active and exercised is critical to enhancing the brain’s capabilities, now and in later years. Mind workouts will assist in flexing, strengthening, and growing your mind power.

Mind workouts assist in making the brain more agile, flexible and ready to take on any mental challenge, whether it is creativity, performance, memory or task. These skills need to be practiced in order to be honed; as you use them, you will assuredly begin to make significant improvements in everything you do.
