Have you ever forgotten the name of your favorite movie? Perhaps you got confused while driving. Many people laugh off these experiences as a normal part of the aging process. Some will even begin to fear the early onset of Alzheimers disease. However, for the majority of us, these are not the beginning signs of dementia.

Have you ever forgotten the name of your favorite movie? Perhaps you got confused while driving. Many people laugh off these experiences as a normal part of the aging process. Some will even begin to fear the early onset of Alzheimers disease. However, for the majority of us, these are not the beginning signs of dementia. Rather, they indicate a loss of mental sharpness.
The good news is, just as you can exercise your body to increase muscle mass and tone, you can also exercise your brain. If you are consistent, it wont be long before you see results. We as human beings are typically creatures of habit. We like what we like and dislike what we dislike. Many of us will actually state, As I get older, I get more set in my ways. These habitual activities associated with thought, physical activity or food intake form very strong neural pathways.
These reinforced pathways result in our having very strong behavior patterns when it comes to the things we do everyday. Unfortunately, the more often we do something the same way we have always done it, the stronger these pathways become and the more likely it is that our brains will become bored. Our brain is no longer taking in new information and processing it and making new connections. In other words, instead of our world expanding due to new experiences as it should, it becomes more fixed and is less likely to be able to process new information and will eventually start to break down due to lack of proper stimulation.
Even though we may constantly be seeing new movies, listening to new music, going to new places, etc. We go to the grocery store the same day each week, often at the same time of day. We turn on the television to watch our favorite shows each day at the same time.
We use minimal sensory input to perform our everyday tasks. Good habits make our life easier but remember, the brain likes novelty. Novelty is the key to properly stimulating our brains and thereby helping us to function at our best. Many adults do classic brain stimulation exercises such as crossword puzzles, Sadoku and word searches. While these are good activities they quickly go from novel activity to habit. This does not mean you shouldnt do these.
You should definitely do all of these classic activities. However, you may want to try to perform these wonderful brain exercises slightly differently now that you know what a difference it can make.

Tamil Tv Serial Thuppariyum Sambu
Thuppariyum Sambu Created by Devan The United States was certainly not the only country to have a pulp fiction explosion. In the forties, the libraries of the Indian province of Tamil were crammed with "thuppariyum kathaigal" detective stories which caught the attention of thousands of readers. These were the often-humurous accounts of a failed bank clerk who somehow ended up a private detective, despite having no real talent for deduction. He was short, bald and endowed with a huge nose. He carried a tattered umbrella and walked around in torn dhoti and overcoat. He was what the Tamil brahmins commonly referred to as an "asadu " nincompoop.
Sambu and other characters[ edit ] Sambu is described by Devan as having a bald fringe, a prominent nose and a weak chin. Along with a generally bewildered stare his appearance invariably invites people to term him asadu stupid , an assessment not far from the mark. This becomes an asset for Sambu as criminals often underestimate him. Even though Sambu displays a certain reasoning and cunning, it is Lady Luck who leads him to literally stumble on the truth. A typical Sambu story has him clutch a newly built window railing as he trips over some obstacle, and some stolen diamonds hidden in the cement by a mason come to light. The drama is maintained by Sambu triumphing over people who have previously laughed or ridiculed him, with Sambu often being the last to understand that he has actually solved the crime.
