Brain Power
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     How powerful is your brain? If you want powerful muscles, you must exercise them. The same is true of your brain. You can strengthen your brain by exercising and using it in different ways.
 
2     Learning makes you smarter. It increases your brain capacity. If you go through certain steps, it actually becomes easier to learn. The first step is to link new information to something you already know. If the concept is totally foreign to you, associate it with something very simple, such as a childhood rhyme or song.
 
3     Always try to understand what you are learning. Break it down into simpler concepts. Read all you can about it. Practice it over and over, until it is second nature to you. This strategy can be used with something as simple as spelling words or as complex as a difficult mathematical strategy.
