Fit Brain games

Fit Brain games

I recently stumbled upon Fit Brains an on-line game program that allows you to play relatively old-fashioned games, like what we used to call Concentration. At Fit Brains, you can play several games for free that allow you to work on memory, language skills or concentration. The games were actually a lot of fun.

While I didn’t “upgrade” to the paid version, which allows members to track brain progress and pit themselves against others, I did bookmark the site for further investigation. And I like their tagline: games without guilt.

Studies show that playing games, socializing, learning a new language or taking up a new hobby help keep the brain stimulated, which in turn keeps it healthy. If the games or hobbies involve movement and exercise, like bowling, gardening or bird watching , so much the better, but you can get a mental workout sitting at the computer.

Crossword puzzles have long been the epitome of brain challenge games, with Sudoku now on the list. You can play those games electronically as well. Reader’s Digest has a daily crossword puzzle game, and they also feature the free Fit Brain games.

Spend a little bit of time on line exploring games. Don’t add to your stress level; just add to your fun!   Deborah
