Exploring Chicago's Brainy Activities

Although I have only been living in this city for about 2 years, I am a huge fan of Chitown. Not only are the people nice and the food delicious, but there are also fun, interesting things to do all the time. I have come to find that many of these quintessential Chicago activities are good for your brain as well! I love story time. I think that is why I love history museums so much. The Chicago History Museum is a terrific place to go to improve your memory and enjoy doing it! Wandering around the exhibits and American History skills on famous figures like Abe Lincoln is a fun way to maximize your memory. As one brain specialist says: "When you retrieve old information, you recreate connections between brain cells, strengthening your recall abilities." So check it out: http://www.chicagohs.org/ Art museums can also be a brain-energizing place to go. The Art Institute is always a big hit in Chicago, especially since the addition of the Modern Wing. Art can be associated with memory as well, for instance, you might have taken art history courses in the past and so seeing pieces of art challenges your brain to recall old connections. Learning about art also creates new connections between brain cells. It is a win-win! http://www.artic.edu/aic/ You also can't go wrong with some laughs. Second City is a Chicago legend and going to one of their shows is a great way to boost your energy and de-stress. I've been told that I laugh a lot, and I am happy to hear that! You should go enjoy the hilarious antics of the Second City actors and enjoy the fact that you are getting more than just laughs out of it! http://www.secondcity.com/ I am always up for suggestions on places to check out in Chicago, especially if they help keep my brain fit! You can always send me your ideas via comments below, Facebook, or Twitter (@thebrainstore).
