Train your brain and keep it sharp!
Your brain is just like your muscles. Use it or lose it. You train it and you will keep up its performance, or you get lazy and it will degenerate.
It’s proven that both mental exercises but also physical exercises help us keep our intellectual capacities. Tai Chi gives us both stimuli.
We often say that we learn the forms to not get bored. That’s only half of the truth though. Learning the form also forces us to stay alert, to listen and watch with focus, and memorize complex sequences.
Tai Chi stimulates us through physical exercise. It teaches us to focus on one thing and one thing only and get the most mileage out of our mental capabilities. It also keeps our brain engaged by keeping up and memorizing all the things that our teacher throws at us.
Practice Tai Chi and stay sharp!
