HERE ARE THOSE MENACING MENTAL MODULES YOU WERE WARNED ABOUT EARLIER...A "MIND GYM." Scroll around until something catches your fancy -- then stay and play...between 15 minutes and an hour daily will keep your mind in tip-top shape, and will absolutely heighten your happiness. Really.
We'll even equip you with a few quick warm-up exercises to help you shift into high gear.
RELAXATION (1st WARM-UP EXERCISE TO GET YOU STARTED)
A Column of interesting patterns follows. Choose any one that you'd like, right click several inches to the right of it to have it "come to life" in full motion...then... spend some quiet time just letting yourself get absorbed into the motion of the image that you've chosen.
3-DIMENSIONAL "MAGIC EYE" PERCEPTION -- IMPROVE YOUR INTERPRETIVE VISION (A 2nd WARM-UP EXERCISE)
A helpful trick in finding the "hidden" object (or objects) is to get up close to the picture (so that your nose is practically touching it), let your eyes stay unfocused, and gradually back away from the picture. You will find yourself looking into a Three-dimensional portal. Just click on each of the links below for some mind-bending 3D Magic Eye Exercises, and then return to this page (click on the BACK arrow of your browser), and go to the next one. As they say...Lather, Rinse, Repeat...
