Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope everyone’s day is filled with love, joy, and happiness. Indulge in a few treats too! Have some dark chocolate, red wine, strawberries, or chocolate covered strawberries. FYI, if you’re going to create your own chocolate covered strawberries, here is a helpful hint from Heidi. While the chocolate is melting, add 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil. This will help the chocolate adhere evenly to the strawberries and then form the nice hard chocolate coating. Yummy! Did you notice that these are all good for your brain as well as your heart? What a perfect combination for Valentine’s Day!
How about some anagrams for Valentine’s Day? Anagrams are just one great way to exercise your brain and get those neurons firing! You can compete against yourself, with a group, or against others. Whichever you prefer, it really doesn’t matter as long as you work that brain.
I have a cup of dark roasted coffee, so prepare a cup of green tea, coffee, or hot cocoa with a healthy snack such as spiced or plain walnuts, almonds, dark chocolate, dark chocolate covered almonds-yummy, apple slices with cinnamon, strawberries, or blueberries and let’s exercise our brains. Remember, anagrams are a great brain exercise as 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 your 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!
