BRAINTENANCE (a Lingovation comprised of the key terms Brain and Maintenance) is a treasure trove of articles, resources, exercises and specially-designed protocols to improve the power of your mind in its every significant aspect. Your brain is an electromagnetic, biochemical computer, coordinator, transmitter and receiver comprised of billions of specialized cells. Yet, despite this unfathomable complexity, it functions like a muscle (and a wrinkly one at that) -- its abilities, capacities and power increase with conscious exercise. Strain, train and maintain your brain...its powers are infinitely expandable. By dedicating and investing a small amount of time (perhaps 20 minutes to one hour) in your Braintenance daily, you can and will: enhance your IQ and cognitive functioning; improve your memory; sharpen all of your physical senses, as well as your instincts, intuition, deductive logic, associative intelligence, ability to visualize and creativity; improve your ability to focus and achieve your objectives; accelerate your ability to analyze and comprehend data and circumstances; fire-up your vocabulary, mathematical ability, reading comprehension and retention; improve the quality and length of your life -- and have a great deal of fun expanding the scope of your contemplative, psychic and meditative powers.
Remember: Your brain and your mind are as endlessly fascinating as they are infinitely expandable. Let's learn about them, explore them and develop them together. Unlimited mind power is your birthright. It is your gift -- use it well.
Train, strain and empower your brain. It's the greatest investment of time that you can possibly make. Enjoy the ride...
