A child's brain is the most flexible brain. It’s quick at learning things and creating understandings based on how the child experiences the world. Hence, as a parent you want your child to make the best experiences in order to develop the best version of themselves.
Activities in a brain start right from the birth. Each part of the brain is responsible for a unique function. Majorly the brain is divided into 2 halves, left (logical half) and right (creative half).
Furthermore different areas in each half makeup for different functions like motion (physical activities), language, emotion and cognitive responses. A sound mind performs daily activities with precision and hence it’s very important to practice brain activities from an early stage.
Practising better brain activities means allowing the brain to function on all the different areas. The more you Exercise the more the brain develops.
So, If you ask what works into developing a child's brain activity - it’s performing the activities itself.
This article is all about things that we can do to improve a child's brain activity. At Brainy we Train thousands of kids across the country daily. This gave us deep insights about what works and what doesn’t work into developing a kids brain. Through a carefully designed process of training a child we’ve narrowed down 3 most effective ways to improve their brain activities.
Practising Sensory Motions :
Ever wonder why children keep mouthing things or kicking and stumbling upon the most obvious things? It’s how they experience the world and how their brain understand the surroundings. Each experience is sensed by the brain by either of the 5 senses; touch, taste, smell, sight and hearing.
To ensure better brain development involve your child in to doing things that involve using one or more senses at a time. This helps them activate their sense repeatedly and hence triggering different parts of the brain.
Any activity we do creates a memory in the brain and it’s stored in a new neuron (brain cell). The more your kid experiences the better his sense becomes and create new brain cells.
A mere ball catching game activates touch and sight sensory parts of the brain. Similarly eating healthy food with different tastes enhances the sense of taste.
Slowly and gradually upgrading the activities is one of the best ways we’ve encountered in accelerating the brain’s growth.
Brain Exercise :
Like your body, the brain is made up of muscles and it becomes stronger the more you exercise. Popular brain exercises include brain and body coordination activities. Practicing memory responses by tasks like memorizing 15 things forward and backward.
Specifically designed Neurobic exercises along with right and left brain coordination activities keep the brain healthy and agile and can go a long way in developing the brain.
Brain exercises is important to keep it healthy, functional and ready for crucial activities. We advise parents to attend a new puzzle game every day, this not only pushes better brain activity but enhance the creativity and implement curiosity in a child's brain. Trying out games like sudoku would also help in the long run.
Everything we've discussed till now involves doing more things or performing actions. However, doing things is not the only factor for brain development. It’s more important to focus on how the child performs the activities.
Seeing, how they do a task is more important than doing the task itself.
We implement carefully thought out activities that create new learnings and helps build a correct mindset. Activities that involve using multiple senses at a time, storytelling and creative game play turn out to be the best learning methods.
A child learns all the new things everyday and it’s important that they learn it the correct way.
These are the best ways that we believe a parent can implement to improve a child’s brain activity. You can visit Brainy to learn more about our learning sessions and how we can help you build the mindset and personality of your child.
We have a methodology of Training which Involves Meditation / Digitised Music – to open new neural pathways in the brain and Neurobic Exercises which help the mind stay agile and alert. The Blended training provides all round development of the brain with multiple benefits.
