Now that you’ve some worked on some anagrams, it’s time to try some scrambled words. Grab your brain fuel.  I’ve just enjoyed some brain fuel-dark chocolate covered almonds while sipping green tea. Delicious!

Scrambled words are another fun way to help build that cognitive reserve while decreasing your risk for dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease.  Scrambled words are excellent for people of all ages!  They’re great for kids to improve vocabulary and spelling; teens, 20, 30, 40 somethings, baby boomers, and seniors! Word games are superb tools to improve cognitive skills! These Brain Boosters are great for problem solving, thought organization skills, thought flexibility, reasoning skills, processing skills, and executive function skills. Brain exercises help prevent memory loss, promote healthy aging, improve brain function and thinking skills, build a cognitive reserve, and should be a part of everyone’s life every day! Use it or lose it! Try these by yourself, with your family or friends. Why not make it competition and find out who can solve them the fastest?

Unscramble the following words. Have fun! Let us know how you did!

We are back and ready to help you exercise and maintain your brain! Are you remembering to do your daily breathing technique to improve your memory skills? Are you carving out time each day to just relax or meditate to help reduce or better yet eliminate your unwanted and unneeded stress? So, go grab a healthy snack and some green tea or hot cocoa and let’s have fun while exercising those brains!

Let’s start off the new year with some anagrams. Remember, anagrams are a great brain exercise and they target problem solving skills, reasoning skills, thought organization, thought flexibility, judgment, and executive function skills. Anagrams are fun for everyone-teens, baby boomers, seniors. Anagrams are a fun brain building anti-aging activity to boost those brain cells, help form new neural pathways, and build your cognitive reserve. Try these anagrams as a family activity or part of a family game night, compete against friends or office buddies and see who can find the most.  Enjoy, laugh, have fun-it’s good for all of us! Did you know that a  healthy heart helps us maintain a healthy mind and brain? Amazing, isn’t it?

Here are your anagrams. How many new words can be formed? Share your lists with us and let’s see who can generate the most words!
