It’s easy to do a Mindnasium program in a way that suits you, whether for personal, team or business needs. There are three simple steps to get started:
At the consultation session we may discuss questions like:
This includes consideration of whether the plan is for personal, group or business needs.
Many people find that having a training buddy helps with motivation and attending a fortnightly group class helps sustain practice between sessions.
If you don’t we can explore alternative access points.
What time do you have available to train between sessions and how quickly do you want to see results?
The good news is that brain-training programs are highly flexible. Practice can be scheduled into short sessions and anything from 15 minutes to 45 minutes a day will help to build brain fitness.
Each plan will include a variety of activities and exercises that aim to be fun, to grow enthusiasm and self-confidence while contributing to building desired cognitive abilities and an understanding of how brain training works.
The training can improve abilities needed in daily life or work, which might include:
|Improving attention and focus||Improving memory|
|Seeing more & faster for things like road safety & better driving||Clearer hearing for things like learning a new language, for listening when there is a noisy background, understanding muffled speech|
|Building skills for better social interactions in customer service, team work ||Fine tuning perception for sports & other activities|
|Reducing feeling of a “fuzzy” mind for better recovery||Increasing efficiency for daily routines & work commitments|
|Reducing stress and mind chatter for a calmer & less distracted mind ||More mindful & engaged with life
|Improving suppleness, flexibility and agility of body & mind||Improving confidence & curiosity to take on life’s challenges
Cross-training boosts effectiveness of brain training exercises. This means using a variety of brain-training exercises that target different brain processes rather than sticking to just one activity or process. Cross-training activities can also include indirect activities for the brain such as social networking, aerobic fitness, taking time-out to relax and have fun, learning a new skill, mindfulness techniques and much more. It’s best to select cross-training activities that fit with your strengths and priorities. Ideally cross-training activities will not feel like an additional task but are something you might naturally do for fun and wellbeing.
