Brain Fitness Workouts- Fun Cognitive Stimulation Activities
Brain Fitness Workouts exercise your attention, concentration, memory, and creative imagination!
Regular cognitive stimulation helps preserve and strengthen brain functions. These fun and challenging one hour classes for groups or individuals also promote social connections.
A well-rounded cognitive workout includes the following types of exercises:
-Create new memories by learning “Fact of the Day”
-Activate retrieval of already memorized material
-Addition and subtraction
-Noun and verb generation games
-Word search puzzles
-Trail making exercises
-Brainstorming new uses for everyday items
-Poems from one word
-Matching cartoons to captions
-Group games like “Buzz” and “Ping Pang Pong”
These puzzles and games are fun and played with a purpose. All help strengthen attention and concentration. Problem solving, reasoning and strategizing are additional skills that are utilized.
Experts on brain health agree that to maintain brain functions we must “use it or lose it.” Scientists have also shown that the people who engage the most frequently in cognitively stimulating activities are less likely to suffer from dementia. In addition, research confirms that the positive social connections older adults have are important to their brain health.
