No matter what age we are, it’s always good to keep the mind on its toes…(or something like that…maybe I need to look into some of these!) 

This terrific list from a senior living facility in Chicago gives a list of fun and productive ways to keep those wheels turning.  

Recommendations include:

  • Crosswords, Sudoku, and other newspaper puzzles.  You can find these in the paper and also can often find similar puzzles online by Googling them! (Newspaper print is getting awfully small these days!) 
  • Luminosity or Memorado.  Online sites that stimulate different areas of the brain with interactive puzzles.  Luminosity charges a small fee, and Memorado is free. 
  • Chess, Checkers, and Backgammon.  Strategy is everything! 
  • Board games in general.  Classics like Scrabble and Monopoly increase vocabulary and math skills and are lots of fun. 
  • The Grocery List Game: A fun game to play next time you’re with a group of friends.
