Mental Fitness Exercises can improve performance and attitude in many areas of life. While these exercises are especially great for children, they can be performed by anyone and the whole family can join in. They can be done at home, school or work and may form part of a kinesiology session.
The exercises are designed to promote greater use of all areas of the brain, and where relevant, can stimulate the less dominant areas of the brain that can become under utilised when under stress.
Stress can take on many forms. Sometimes, if we let physical, emotional or learning stress take over our lives, poor learning behaviours can occur. These could include an inability to learn and retain information, poor concentration, being unable to read and write fluently and a lack of comprehension, coordination and communication skills.
