18 Minute Brain Exercise

2 minutes- Follow the second hand of a clock for one minute. Think of nothing else. Then close your eyes. See if you can hold them closed for exactly one minute.
3 minutes-Pick up a page of text and turn it upside down. Read from the bottom to the top. Notice how your brain stretches as you try to read the words and understand sentences.
3 minutes-Close your eyes and breathe deeply. Think the sounds 'Ah' on the inhale, and 'Ha' on the exhale. Bring your mind gently back to the sounds if it wanders.
2 minutes-Mentally measure any space you are in (width, length, ceiling height. You can carry a measuring tape to check yourself. Try it! This is fun. 3 minutes-Take a mental vacation. Close your eyes. Pick an exotic locale. Place yourself there. Imagine as many specific sights, sounds, and smells as you can. . (e.g. canals of Venice, streets of Cairo, a hike in the Swiss Alps, etc...)
5 minutes-Assign the numerical values 1-26 to each letter of the alphabet (A= 1, B=2, etc..) Think of five words where the sum of the letters of each word equals 38.
