Learn a new language.
Understanding how a new language works helps you think in new ways.
Keep a daily habit to learn some new words, sentences, or grammar in a new language. I usually spend a few minutes on Memrise or Youtube to do this every day.
Aprender un nuevo idioma tiene muchos beneficios. One of the biggest advantage is increase in gray matter.
- The brain is made up of cells (neurons) which each have a cell body and branching connections (dendrites).
- Gray matter refers to how many cell bodies and dendrites there are.
- Bilingual experience makes gray matter denser (more cells). This is an indication of a healthier brain.
