As humans, we are inclined to move from one thing to the next, including moving from one extreme to the other. This means also moving from overthinking to underthinking. It can be safely concluded that overthinking can result in negatives like under-productivity. In the same vein underthinking can also have an undesirable effect on result. However, we need to take stock of the remarkable prize we can derive from allowing ourselves the opportunity to think sufficiently.
Of course, we can develop the habit of thinking about life's issues enough, without over- thinking. We can strike a balance. When we allow the brain to think through issues, we solve problems and learn. By taking on some amount of problem solving thinking, we challenging and help to nurture the brain.
There are studies which indicate that an active brain makes new link between brain cells. When this connection happens, other cells communicate with one another, thus supporting the brain to store and retrieve information more readily regardless of one's age.
There is clear evidence that learning through challenging ways, impacts the brain very positively, and can provide neuroprotection against dementia. According to the latest statistics in 2016, 44 million people around the world are living with dementia, and this is likely to double in twenty years.
Those brain researchers conclude that if we do not challenge our brain muscles, these muscles can waste away, and we can experience rapid decline in cognitive ability.
Isn't it a highly possible, remarkable prize here at WA, that as we all toil to sustain and improve our financial lives - we are also working to improve, sustain and preserve our brain power.

Here's wishing everyone a calm and relaxing weekend.
