I love using my brain. Whether it’s doing the daily crossword on the Metro or that quick game of Sudoku before heading to sleep, I like figuring things out. One of the things that can occur as people get older is that brains can get a little…lazy. We get caught up in the day-to-day things and aren’t exercising our brains as much as we were when we were young and learning things. One of the ways to keep your brain “fit” is to do a little bit of brain training.
By keeping our brain “limber” and healthy, it helps to keep our mental faculties working properly – whether it’s hand-eye coordination or our memories. Both of these skills typically diminish with age. To counteract that, there are mental exercises you can perform to maintain, and possibly even improve, or cognitive skills. I just used one online brain fitness program to test out my own mental skill level and actually had quite a bit of fun determining my cognitive score. These types of programs not only measure your current level but also provide exercises you can perform to improve your cognitive skills.
Having a healthy and active brain is just as important as keeping healthy physically, so make sure you get in your daily mental exercises!
