Good morning and welcome to Episode 059 of the Train Your Brain Podcast with Dr. Michael Trayford. Every Monday we produce a 30-minute episode. Tuesday through Sunday we produce episodes with five-minute tips. Every episode of the Train Your Brain Podcast features a tip, so you can receive pointers 365 days a year that will help enhance the performance of your brain!
Today Dr. Trayford shares brain training tip 59! He admonishes us to go a little further each day. If you have an exercise routine already in place, you might find yourself plateauing after a while. At that point, cautiously consider pushing yourself just a little bit. Adding another block to your run or another five minutes to your routine will add up!
This tip incorporates a philosophy that can fit into many aspects of your life, in this case it pays particularly large benefits for your daily exercise routine. Human beings are capable of doing great things, but you can’t reach great heights without pushing your own limits.
If your daily exercise routine involves taking a vigorous walk through your neighborhood and you always turn around at the same spot, you might get stuck in a rut. The next time you want to go a little bit further. Just keep in mind that you don’t want to push through serious pain. The goal should be to go a little bit further each day, not to go to extremes each and every day.
If I just push on for extra tenth of a mile, or you put in that one more set, or five more minutes at practice, it will all add up over time. Pushing your limits, a little bit each day is money in the bank. It’s like compound interest. The results will serve you in the long run. This goes beyond the little things.
You’ll eventually start to notice significant improvements. In time you might end up doing things you never thought you could do before. I know people who have used this principle that are running marathons and they never intended to run in a marathon when they started.
This mentality also keeps you from getting caught up in a limiting mindset. Pushing yourself a little further in your exercises and other aspects of your life, fosters a sense that of unlimited potential.
By going a little further each day, your brain and body will thank you for it.
