Gymnastics in school performance
This concept is not always linked to the exercise of visible muscles, but also those that are not seen, such as the brain.
During the first stage of our life we are extremely sensitive and perceptive beings so any experience that affects us could severely condition our learning; for this reason and to avoid ending problems so present in childhood of these highly convulsive modern societies and with so little capacity for amazement and true dedication to something, is that a method has been developed to facilitate concentration.
It is known as brain gymnastics and consists of a technique, created in 1969 under the title of "Brain Gym", based on a series of exercises whose purpose is to clear the mind of any distraction in order to help the individual to concentrate on something punctual. In this way, disorders such as hyperactivity and dyslexia and behavioral problems arising from these or other difficulties.
It is a method in which they are generated neural connections that motivate balance and greatly improve the ability to understand and learn in all fields.
As expressed by Dr. Susana Buscaglia, an eminence in this study, we try to detect and balance those tensions that could have accumulated in a brain throughout existence and that significantly influenced learning, in addition encourage creativity and self-worth.
To carry out these exercises it is necessary arm yourself with a routine, it is not necessary to have a time and place (although this could help because it would mean that you are really taking them seriously) and be open and willing to achieve the objectives of each practice. With the passing of the days a greater concentration will be achieved, which can greatly facilitate the reading comprehension, so underdeveloped in those children who live tormented or hyper energetic.
Extensive dedication is not necessary to obtain good results, with about five minutes a day constantly, clear results can begin to be seen.
