Welcome to Day 28 of our 30 Days To Faster Thinking, a free guide to help you unlock your potential to more nimble thinking and to strengthen your focus and attention for a better memory — in just a few minutes each day.
Research shows that regular intellectual engagement over our lifetimes is linked to reduced risk for dementia. A popular TBH intellectual “stretch” workout is poetry writing, including Haikus. Popularized in Asia, haikus are a famous form of simple, direct expression that require attention, verbal skills and creativity. They are challenging – in all the good ways!
Try This Now:
Give yourself 3 minutes to come up with a Haiku on the topic of thinking fast. A traditional Haiku is a three-line poem with seventeen syllables, written in a 5/7/5 syllable count.
Ramp it up by reducing the time on the clock to 2 minutes, and create a new Haiku about being grateful to your brain for all it does.
