You asked for it, so here it is-more anagrams! These are really such fun and great for your brain! You can do these by yourself, with a group, or compete against others. Whichever way you prefer, it really doesn’t matter as long as you work that brain.

By the way, have you exercised today? If not, don’t stress as the day isn’t over. Go take a walk. Medical professionals now recommend we each strive to walk 10,000 steps each day. I’ve hit mine-how about you? Everyone must incorporate some type of exercise into their life in order to achieve longevity and healthy again!  Physical exercise gets the blood flowing and circulating and that’s good for your brain and brain health.

I have my cup of green tea so yourself  grab a cup of green tea, coffee,  or hot cocoa with some spiced or plain walnuts, almondsdark chocolate, dark chocolate covered almonds-yummy, apple slices with cinnamon, strawberries, or blueberries and let’s workout. Let’s try more anagrams with a holiday theme. 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 co-workers 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!
