(Higher Perspectives) As a society today, much of the developed Western world is largely critical of one's health.

If you're thin and in good shape, it's seen as a positive because we know that that person holds the required discipline and work ethic to achieve such a physical figure.

On the other hand, we tend to view those with poor health and a poor physical figure as lazy or unintelligent.

Exercise is probably the single most advocated activity across developed nations. How many times have you been told to exercise because it provides you with so many different health benefits?

When I was in school, we had a physical exercise course every single day. And while exercise is great for the mind and body, what if we just want to exercise the mind by itself? Is there any way for us to do that?

You're almost never told that you should exercise your brain to keep it sharp and healthy. And there's no way for society to truly tell if your brain is healthy and active or if it's dulling with each passing second.

And while many people will go out of their way to praise you for having a healthy body, fewer people will go out of their way to praise you for having a healthy mind. So, it's up to you to make sure your mind is firing on all cylinders!

One way you can do so is by trying your brain at memory quizzes like the one here! This quiz tests your brain in ways that you likely have not been tested ever! It will help keep that mind of yours sharp and alert.

See how well you do and then share with friends and family who you think would also enjoy sharpening their minds.
