As the day winds down, it’s a good time to reflect upon your day. What healthy foods did you eat? Have you had enough water? Did you take your vitamins and prescribed medications? Did you exercise?  Last but certainly not least, and my favorite of course-What did you do to exercise your brain?

I’ve eaten a brown rice cake with peanut butter, salad loaded with colorful vegetables dressed with balsamic vinegar and olive oil, blueberries, strawberries, a small square of dark chocolate, walnuts, chicken with fresh mushrooms, onions, and tomato sauce and garlic green beans. I’ve had about 75 ounces of water in addition to green tea, low sodium V-8, and unsweetened chocolate almond milk.

I exercised earlier and have logged over 10,000 steps on my pedometer. Today my brain exercises consisted of  a game of ScrabbleAlzheimer’s and dementia research, and  the development of more Brain Boosters.

Let’s try some scrambled words. These are great to help build your brain power and cognitive reserve. Scrambled words focus on problem solving, thought organization, thought flexibility, processing, reasoning skills, and executive function. Scrambled words are fun for all ages to enjoy. Make it a family activity or make it a  friendly competition. The important thing is that you’re working your brain,  building new neuro pathways and taking advantage of our brain’s plasticity. Keep trying new activities as this helps challenge the brain. By caring for and maintaining your brain and body, you are on your way to healthy aging, longevity, fighting Alzheimer’s and dementia, and improving your quality of life!  Don’t we all want to maintain our independence and age in place? So, dive in and make a commitment to become a lifelong learner!

Try unscrambling these words and let us know how you do! Have fun and enjoy!
