A Word A Day

It is important to keep physically fit. But it is just as critical to stay mentally fit as well. One form of mental aerobics is to learn a word a day. It will do more than improve your vocabulary; it may also help keep your brain sharp.

Learning new words or doing activity that is mentally challenging - such as reading history books or learning chess - stimulates neurogenesis, the process that allows the brain to regenerate nerve cells throughout life. Pick an unfamiliar word out of the newspaper every day and drill yourself on using it. You can also have a word e-mailed to you daily from www.dictionary.reference.com/wordoftheday.
