Romantic Robot Working on it.

Where’s the soap?

An article in yesterday’s Guardian Unlimited claims that

Doing ‘brain exercises’ such as watching Countdown, playing Sudoku or taking a shower with your eyes closed can make us all up to 40 per cent cleverer within seven days

Guess which one I’ll be working on ?

They add:

But an increasing body of scientific opinion holds that you can take steps in your life to actually improve your brainpower by, for example, …working on your spatial awareness

So I lie in bed, with my eyes closed and become spatially aware as I picture the side of the bed, the pillow, the room I am in. And that will make me cleverer ? Cool. I can handle that :)

One suggestion though:

using your computer mouse with your ‘wrong’ hand for an hour a day

I need to do this. A combination of very poor typing skills + posture + using the mouse a lot is now making itself felt in my right hand. It’s talking warnings right now …. painful ones too.

  1. Liking the idea to use the mouse with a different hand. I’ve also considered, in times past, having a ‘stand up’ desk (probably not permanently) to offer a changr of scenery for my back and neck muscles.

    Hmmm, thinking cap back on.

    And I typed most of this post with my eues shut.

    *eyes open and only two spelling mistakes, wow!*
