Our Mind Games
You’ve heard about mind over matter — but what really matters when it comes to the mind? The brain learns and grows by interacting with its surrounding environment. With a mental workout, you can improve its function and plasticity. But brain games don’t have to be mind-boggling to keep your noggin in top shape:
Read a book: Reading stimulates and challenges your brain by building stronger cell connections.
Solve a puzzle: Games like Sudoku and crossword puzzles help the logical side of your brain stay sharp.
Learn a new task: You’re never too old to learn. Pick a new hobby — a craft, language, or musical instrument. Begin with a few minutes of daily repetitive learning (easily met challenges will prevent anxiety and fear of failure) and progress to more stimulating content.
