As baby boomers and senior citizens, we need to get serious about our mental exercise, as well as our physical exercise.
Research has shown that working crossword puzzles, playing trivia games, or anything that forces us to think, exercises our brains and is good for us!
My favorite site right now for brain exercise is Sporkle. Sporkle is free and is filled with super fun games. There is no sign-in or registration. You simply play games. Can you name the United States? All of them? I like this game because as you type in a state, the name floats to the proper place on the map of the USA. That really helps when you have left out just one — and cannot remember it! Seeing the blank state on the map jogs my mind!
Can you name 8 body parts with only 3 letters in the spelling?
Can you name the European countries? All of them?
Can you name all of the presidents of the US?
Go have a little fun — and challenge yourself! Don’t let your brain get sluggish!
