How would you rate your level of mental fitness?
- HIGH My mental performance is exceptional. Just call me Leonardo.
- MEDIUM I occasionally think of new things and sometimes challenge my thinking muscles.
- LOW My mind is like a bowl of tapioca pudding. I'm in real need of a mental workout.
No matter which category you have selected, remember that mental fitness — your ability to concentrate, to reason, to visualize, to imagine, to make decisions, to solve problems, and to think clearly and creatively — depends on how well and how often you exercise your mind.
If you feel that you are mentally out of shape, then cheer up, you can improve simply by taking the time to work your mental muscles.
If you feel fit, then recognise that you still need exercises to keep your mind in top shape. Even Olympic athletes need practice...
"To exercise one's mind is to sharpen and improve the most human thing a human being possesses... the book shows you how to do it and amply proves that the process is fun as well." — Isaac Asimov
