5 Proven Habits That Will Make Your Mind Stronger

5. Do puzzles

Crossword puzzles, cognitive training, and other exercises can help you strengthen your mind. A good idea is to follow a varied cognitive training program that includes different types of exercises, however, puzzles also show benefits for different situations. For example, a study found the onset of memory problems associated with dementia were delayed in people who did crossword puzzles. Puzzles also have been linked to increased mental flexibility.[6][7][8]

What to do: Find a comprehensive cognitive training program or a type of puzzles you enjoy. Do puzzles during your commute or during other moments of your day, integrating this habit into your routine. Puzzles can be a more challenging and beneficial way of spending quick periods of downtime than browsing social media.
