As we get older… and we are getting older, there are certain brain functions that could benefit from a brain sharpening exercise game. What? Now I have to have an exercise routine for my brain?
It doesn’t involve heavy lifting don’t worry. Thanks to brain improvement sites you can play fun games that will give you all the brain sharpening exercise and cognitive fitness that you need.
Great so I can play some online brain improvement games and I’ll get smarter? No. Brain sharpening exercise games won’t make you any smarter than what you are right now. Poo. But what they will do is improve your brain function which begins to slow down as early as the age of 30.
Ok so where do you go to play these brain sharpening exercise games?
I’m really interested in all of the brain training type games that are out there today but they are not all equal. I found the Lumosity site and it’s the best one that I’ve tried so far.
Lumosity offers games that give you a full brain sharpening exercise routine in as little as 10 minutes (although you’ll end up wanting to play for longer). Their brain sharpening exercise games have been designed to do a few things:
- Elevate your mood
- Give you clearer and quicker thinking
- improve your concentration at work or even while driving (you know you zone out)
- Make you more alert and aware
- Improve your memory for things like number, names, directions, etc.
What I like about Lumosity is it’s free and that they aren’t trying to make any claims about what their brain games can do for your intelligence. Their tag line is “Lumosity – Reclaim your brain” meaning make your brain function like it did when it was at it’s best. That is what Lumosity Brain Games will do for you.
Also, Lumosity offers a free trial period which lasts 7 days. In this 7 day free trial period you will go through a basic training course for your brain. This basic training course includes:
- 30 sessions of guided brain sharpening exercises
- Focused brain sharpening exercises on 4 different brain areas: memory, attention, cognitive control, and processing speed
- Bootcamp for your brain
- Feedback and tracking of your brain improvement
After your Lumosity 7 day free trial of brain sharpening exercises you then have the option of joining Lumosity for a monthly fee. This monthly fee gives you access to all of the brain courses that Lumosity offers, which includes advanced brain sharpening exercise games. They are always adding additional brain exercises, games and features to keep their site entertaining and engaging.
You can either pay Lumosity $9.95/month or $79.95/year, whichever way you feel more comfortable with. I have a very strong feeling that once you try the Lumosity free trial offer you are going to be hooked. You will see the importance and benefit of making brain fitness an integral part of your healthy lifestyle… try it.
