Take time to answer

by Sara

I can't give answer to any question quickly. I think about it, then I conclude the answer. Even simple questions, and if I try to answer quick or do some thing, I always do it wrong.

Doug's Reply. I'm not exactly sure I understand what you are describing. If someone asks you the day of the week (example: Tuesday), you say the wrong day if you answer quickly?

If that's the case, then simply don't rush when responding to questions. There is nothing wrong with being deliberate.

In our fast-paced world, a quick answer is sometimes equated with higher intelligence. And, I admit, for some professions such as a stock exchange trader a rapid response might be an asset or a requirement.

But most people can afford to take a little time when answering questions. Your listener shouldn't be overly concerned if your reply comes a second or two later than they expected. Especially if that means they receive an accurate response to their query.

The point is, try to slow down. Give your mind time to access the information. It's almost always more important to give a correct answer the first time than to blurt out a wrong answer.

Beyond that, take steps to improve the health of your brain. These include:

  • Get sufficient restful sleep

  • Exercise aerobically every day

  • Exercise your mind with brain games

  • Meditate to relax and rejuvenate your mind

  • Eat a healthy diet, and drink plenty of water

  • Use organizational tools such as day planners and calendars to keep track of daily tasks

  • Learn and practice memory techniques so you can easily memorize information you really need to remember

These topics are discussed right here on my website. Just click the buttons on the left-hand navigation bar.

Take good care of your brain so it can function at an optimum level. If you do, you may be pleasantly surprised at the results.

Free Online Brain Games:
free brain games

No sign-up or log-in needed. Just go to a game page and start playing!

GAME TIP #1: Many games on this site such as Curveball were built with Adobe Flash. To play these games, you must allow the free Adobe Flash Player to run in your browser. If you don't see an animation in the red rectangle above, click in the red rectangle and activate your Flash Player. Then the Flash-based games should open for you.

If you see a message that the Adobe Flash Player is "blocked", go to your browser's Settings page and change Block to Ask First, if possible.

If the red rectangle is empty, your browser might not have the Flash Player. To check this, follow the steps on Adobe's Flash Player Help page.

GAME TIP #2: If you cannot get the Flash-based brain games to work, try the HTML5 brain games instead. HTML5 games do not use the Adobe Flash Player. They work in modern browsers automatically. All the HTML5 games are listed on this page.
