Surfing the Internet = Sharper Brain

It’s such good news for those who are really into the virtual world to solve their problems. This morning I opened my email inbox to discover an email alert redirecting to this article.
It was explained that  surfing the web is beneficial for our grey cells. But how?
These two simple points may serve as a summary for that:
  • Internet searching stimulates our brain to work harder than usual. And it’s good for us as it’s proven to be effective to trigger more brain activity in a scientific study involving a bunch of older adults (I have no idea how old the subjects here were exactly). Take this quiz to learn how old your brain actually is. Who knows you’re chronologically 20 years old, but cerebrally 25?
  • Looking for answers in the Internet energizes our brain. After clicking the ‘find’ button and get some links to read through, our brain must filter the flood of information it gets from the web. It should decide which information is relevant or irrelevant, useful or unuseful, worthsaving or not. Making all those decisions isn’t easy and takes a relatively sharp and healthy mind.

And the most shocking piece of info I got from the same site (www.realage.com) is that we can enlarge our brain and train it to function better ONLY by WALKING! 

True, there’s no home-gym equipment designed to build up your brain muscle. But a simple walk will do.
A new study shows that regular cardiovascular exercise can enlarge the hippocampus — a brain structure vital to memory function.
Does it sound great, people? So let’s surf and walk to sharpen your brain.
