From Brain Based Biz: When you try an activity that’s totally new to you, you are building new neuron pathways in your brain. Why is this good? If you simply do the same things day to day, you create ruts and routines. I wanted to learn to play a video game like my grandsons and a physical activity, too. Today, Minecraft is one of the most challenging and problem solving games available and I decided to learn to learn do this as opposed to word games I am used to playing. Why? Disruptive activity is good for your brain. What is disruption, anyway?
