Brain Fitness and Anti-Aging for Your Mind

Give your Brain a Workout

Start giving your brain a workout. The key to brain fitness is to always be engaging in something new and giving your brain challenges to solve. When anything you do becomes second nature, you need to make a change. If you can do the crossword puzzle in your sleep, it’s time for you to move on to a new challenge in order to get the best workout for your brain.
Brain fitness programs and games are a wonderful way to challenge your brain. Suduko, crosswords and electronic games can all improve your brain’s speed and memory. These games rely on logic, word skills, math and more. These games are also fun. You’ll benefit more by doing these games a little bit every day — spend 15 minutes or so, not hours.

Eat for Your Brain

Your brain needs you to eat healthy fats. Focus on fish oils from wild salmon, nuts such as walnuts, seeds such as flax seed and olive oil. Eat more of these foods and less saturated fats. If possible, try to eliminate transfats completely from your diet.

Turn Off Your Television

The average person watches more than 5 hours of television every day. Television can stand in the way of relationships, life and more. Replace hours of television watching with reading, taking a walk or gardening. Get off the couch and get moving!

Try this book to give your brain a boost…The 10 Minute Brain Workout by Michael O’Mara is a fantastic book of logic puzzles, tips, and games that includes an explanation of how these activities affect your brain and build thinking capacity.
