When was the last time you put your mind through strenuous exercise? I’m not talking about the time it took you 20 minutes to decide which pizza to order from your local takeaway. If you don’t have a healthy mind you will suffer because a healthy body isn’t enough to afford you a great life. You probably don’t have any plans to do something about it soon, so I’m going to help you out by going over a few apps you should use. They will leave your mind in tiptop condition in no time.
Do you think it’s crazy that people go to the gym yet for some reason they don’t even attempt to train their mind? Even crossword puzzles are becoming a thing of the past because too many people would rather complain about their problems on Facebook. The Lumosity app hopes to give you a great way to train your mind by playing special games that are designed to improve your creativity, expand your memory, and give you a better attention span.
Some people are unlucky because they don’t have much money and further education is too expensive. How are you meant to expand your mind if you can’t even afford to put food on your table? Khan Academy will let you watch hundreds of quality videos on almost any subject you can possible think of. You will even be able to track your progress and eventually your mind will become healthier than ever before because you’re using it regularly.
If you’ve suffered from a mood disorder in the past there is a good chance you’ve heard of cognitive behavior technology. It’s a great way for people with emotional problems to change the way they think in certain situations. If you’re feeling stressed, depressed, or anxious this app might give you the ability to turn things around. Before you see any big changes it’s important you can control your mind, so don’t bother trying to do it on your own.
You might feel like crap most of the time, but because it just seems like normal to you it’s possible you won’t know something inside your head has gone wrong. This app is designed to help you recognize when you’re not feeling great and it does it by getting you to track your moods. It will remind you to record how you’re feeling on a regular basis and over time you will notice the shape of a graph taking place. You can analyze the graph to work out why you’re feeling a certain way.
What is the one thing you could master that would make your life a thousand times easier? If you learned how to develop good habits it would change everything about your health. If you could stop smoking you wouldn’t die of lung cancer. If you could stop eating fatty foods you wouldn’t die of heart disease. Lift is a great app that can help you develop great habits and it does it by reprograming your mind. You just need to follow the app and it will take care of the rest.
It starts in the mind
People seem to think their mind doesn’t matter as much as their body, but they only feel this way until something goes wrong. When it does it’s usually too late, so instead of having a weak and unhealthy mind you should look after it to the best of your ability. When you feel as fresh as a daisy there is no better feeling in the world and these apps will help you accomplish that.
