You can have fun changing your code every month to exercise your memory in addition to using different PINs for each card. Learn your passwords by heart for all your services and online purchases and use your memory to call your loved ones instead of opting for your electronic directory on your smartphone.

It's up to you to stimulate it.

Pull out your pen

Writing would be a very beneficial therapeutic exercise according to several studies and this is particularly true if you write while listening to your emotions. It is even said that if everyone took the time to write down what they saw, psychologists would be much less in demand since there is a therapeutic action in the act of writing. The idea of ​​writing can relieve, console or comfort while allaying certain fears. In her book, the author, who is a social work technician, offers 100 exercises to support those who want to use their creativity through their pen while putting their emotions into words. Besides, all the reasons are good to write. Whether you are sad, happy, in love, angry or in a good mood, writing allows you to let your emotions rise in you and to communicate your moods, a bit like a dialogue with yourself. The idea is not to write for the general public, but rather for oneself. A way like any other to get to know yourself better and become aware of what you are going through.

To take the exercise seriously, it is important not to censor yourself since you have no need to have anyone read your writings, you do it for yourself only. Thus, one can be completely authentic. Moreover, if some people take pleasure in rereading, others will not even reread since in any case the work was in the writing itself, by bringing out what we feel in ourselves. Once the emotions are gone, the mission is accomplished. We suggest repeating the practice each time you feel the need or when you are faced with an obstacle, a difficulty or when big decisions or big choices in your life are necessary.
