Brain Games: Mind activity helps improve memory, concentration

By Denise W. Fairley

School is in session. And the weekends are your time to plan travel, exercise and hang out with friends.

While the weekend is a time to relax, you want to make sure to keep your brain in tip-top shape. Like a muscle, the more you use your brain the stronger it will be. Try to find a different way to exercise your brain each day.

The three key principles for good brain exer¬cises are: newness, variety and constant challenge. Neuropsychologists — brain doctors — recommend computer-based brain games because they include these key principles.

Brain games can help improve both your short- and long-term memory. This can help improve your concentration and give you better clarity when under stressful situations. Below are links for different brain games you can play.
Have fun, ladies!
