Power Skills

Want to increase your brain power? Consider enrolling in a class this fall. Research suggests that learning a new skill may spark brain cell growth and slow your brain's aging. Simple tasks aren't quite the same. The trick is to pick a challenging activity, such as:

  • master a new language
  • take a class in public speaking
  • learn to paint or sculpt
  • play a new musical instrument
  • learn a complex skill like digital photography, quilting, or repairing a car

Bonus: acquiring new skills also leads to a spike in self-confidence. Not only will you be sharper, you will walk taller, too.
