Caring for the elderly

While the elderly do show cognitive decline over time, research indicates that the more interested and engaged the brain remains, the more benefits can be experienced. Using mind wandering as a tool to support positive reminiscing, engagement and improved mood is, therefore, certainly worth exploring. There is also the potential for mind wandering to improve cognitive flexibility, which may, in turn, delay or address some cognitive decline. If you are interested in exploring further how Wander120 could assist you as another tool to support reconnection, please contact us.

Studying

The lifestyle pressure and ‘always on’ mentality of students – at school or university – takes its toll on thinking processes. Multi-tasking, burning the midnight oil, a constant stream of new environments and new things to learn leaves little room for creativity or strategic thinking. That’s where mind wandering can help. Studies suggest that it not only supports a younger person’s ability to switch tasks, adopt different ways of thinking, maintain focus, and manage anxiety and stress, but it also improves the brains neuroplasticity (flexibility]. Task free downtime can lead to some creative thinking moments, with new ideas and problem-solving strategies coming to the fore. Recent research also indicates mind-wandering can assist with the retaining of new information, helping embed and consolidate new learning into the memory.
