An excellent way to turn your kids into advanced thinkers is to introduce them to the game of chess. And we all know kids learn by what they see. So if you're an adult, start playing some chess around your kids today.
Playing chess stimulates the mind and keeps it occupied on something positive instead of thinking about things that you don't want to think about. It's a great way to create gaps in thought. Experts estimate that the mind thinks between 60,000 to 80,000 thoughts per day. That's 2500 to 3300 thoughts per hour.
Don't know about you, but those are some serious thinking that can bring some hefty results if channeled the right way. The Sky is the limit!
