I have spring fever in February, the trees are in bloom, the pollen count is ridiculous, and the weather is just gorgeous. My daughter and I enjoyed a brisk walk and are now cooling down having some iced green tea along with apple slices and cinnamon. We have worked our bodies and eaten healthy brain foods. Now it is time to exercise our brains. Here we go.

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. Brain exercises are important in the fight against Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia. So, 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!
