  • Brain games make you sharper, but so does eating dirt? Some studies are showing that common soil bacteria may improve your cognitive abilities, stimulating neurons in our brains, and lowering anxiety.  Does that mean that gardening is good for your mind?
  • Try learning a language: exercising your memory and using your newly-developed skills give you a mental workout.
