In the course of just one day, we use our brain functions constantly. Thousands of tasks are being performed, which require milliones of complex mental calculations from different parts of the brain. Here we will show you some examples of you will use these cognitive skills and brain functions daily in a multitude of tasks.

- Making food is good for your brain? When you're cooking, you have to watch various pots and pans at the same time, all while attending to your guests and the recipe.
- Run a meeting? Properly running a business or family meeting is a complex task. It requires your brain to activate determined neural networks and brain functions related to attention, concentration, active listening capacity, response speed, etc.
- Fly a kite? Most people assume that relaxation comes naturally, but you couldn't do it without a few key cognitive abilities.
- Drive a car? Even if you're an experienced driver, getting to your destination quickly and safely requires skill, concentration and a wide array of cognitive abilities.
- Meet with friends? Life would be lonely without the cognitive skills that allow us to meet and greet one another.
