Following a concussion, medical professionals might direct a patient to complete a period of both physical and cognitive rest. Both of these are important in helping the brain heal after an injury. Cognitive rest is rest for the brain, just like physical rest is rest for the body. Resting conserves energy and allows the body and brain to use it for recovery. Your child should take it easy the first few days after the injury when symptoms are more severe.
Early on, limit physical and thinking/remembering activities to avoid symptoms getting worse. Avoid activities that put your child at risk for another injury to the head and brain. Get a good night’s sleep and take naps during the day as needed. According to concussion experts, brain rest means ceasing any activities—no matter how seemingly benign—that aggravate the child’s symptoms or are metabolically demanding.
Cognitive activity, like physical activity, requires metabolic energy. Concussion experts define brain rest as limiting any cognitive activities that may be metabolically demanding and/or aggravate concussion symptoms. These cognitive activities can range from focused work, like doing math problems, to attending large social gatherings with lots of people, visual stimuli, and background noise.

Strenuous mental activity seems to delay recovery after a head injury, according to a new study published in Pediatrics.
