Try these Word Beads that we have created. These are are great for exercising your brain. Word Beads focus on thought organization, problem solving, reasoning, memory skills, thought flexibility, and executive function. By incorporating brain fitness activities into your life, you are taking positive steps toward healthy aging while improving your brain function and overall thinking skills. Healthy aging and longevity include building brain power through use of brain or neuro plasticity to create your cognitive reserve. These activities are necessary to stave off the development of Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia. Don’t forget about the physical exercise component as well! Physical exercise and a healthy diet aid in decreasing the risk for developing other diseases such as diabetes, depression, high blood pressure-all of which have been linked to memory impairments.
