Neurobics exercises are a unique system of brain exercises. Get your brain fizzing with energy.

American researchers coined the term ‘neurobics’ for tasks which activate the brain’s own biochemical pathways and to bring new pathways online that can help to strengthen or preserve brain circuits.

They are designed to help your brain manufacture its own nutrients to strengthen, preserve and grow brain cells.

Some easy exercises include, brush your teeth with your ‘other’ hand, take a new route to work, get dressed with your eyes shut, listen to music and smell flowers, shop at a new store or listen to the rain and tap your fingers

People with mental agility tend to have lower rates of Alzheimer’s disease and age-related mental decline.

  1. Now that is very interesting…….

    Because mum has MS she has had to use her left hand for a long long time as her right hand doesn’t really work…. and she is as sharp as anything mentally…. She has had to work out all sorts of ways of doing things despite her disability…..

    How interesting. I shall try doing lots of things differently as I am sure my brain is kind of melting…. 😉


    • Sorry to hear your Mum also suffers from MS desert-times, you do have your hands full. But it is interesting this and something I think I will try 🙂


      • She got diagnosed 20years ago with it and is gradually going down and down with it….. We are amazed she outlived dad who had been really fit and healthy…


  2. I just found your blog through blogher. I have suffered from back pain for years. I am 40, but I had surgery this past Aug. for 2 ruptured discs in my neck and I just had another surgery a month ago on my L5-S1 ruptured disc with exposed nerve root. Do you know what exactly is meant by nerve root exposure. It is what my surgeon told my parents after the surgery and I didn’t see him, but the nurse practitioner for my post op. I am really glad I found your blog!


  3. Hi April, Sorry to hear you have suffered back pain for years. I have not heard of nerve root exposure,sorry, I think the best person to ask would be your GP or when you go back for your check up. It always helps if you know what problem you had. I do hope you will soon be feeling better. I’ve also had two neck fusions and two lumber fusions with syn cage so I sympathise with you. Please don’t hesitate to ask or chat.Take care 🙂
