Memory games to boost your brain… | October 26, 2018

The problem I had writing this article was that I was having too much fun! I kept on getting detained playing games, but it was worth it. Some I did o.k. on, others I flunked miserably. They’re fun, they’re challenging, and I think you’ll really like them.

(A personal word of advice. Go to Games.com first. You’ll be hooked!)

  1. Good topic Phylis! I personally have used Lumosity for years and love it. It is not very expensive but you can get “brain exercises” for free on some of the the other sites you mention. I would go further however and point out that we can exercise our brains for free using the many sites that offer free courses in languages, scinces, history and almost anything. I personally use Cousera but there are many others. And finally I would recomend doing a free on line basic course in Mindfulness for anyone who suffers from anxiety.

    • Great tips and very helpful.

      (I failed miserably on Lumosity, at the doctor’s and at home.)

      And yes, reading and participating in “mindfulness” is a useful exercise in itself.

      For anything, I think.
