Brain games "...may help with improving select brain skills and can play an important role in maintaining overall brain health." ~ Dr. Julie Brody-Magid, clinical director of the Memory Disorders Assessment Clinic at Harvard-affiliated McLean Hospital

For years scientist have debated whether playing brain games can boost brain power and protect against Alzheimer's dementia. My intuitive sense has always been that keeping your mind active with games and puzzles must be better for the brain than zoning out on the couch in front of the TV.

Today's experts appear to agree. Brain games do support thinking and memory. In The Thinking on Brain Games, October 2019, Harvard Health reported that, according to studies, the mental stimulation of brain games sharpens processing speed, reaction time, short-term memory, decision making, and other thinking skills that fade with age.

However, brain games are just one piece of the puzzle. The trick is to combine playing them with other mentally engaging activites, plus a heart-healthy lifestyle. For example, stay socially engaged, exercise regularly, eat a healthy whole-foods diet, and get sufficient rest.

"Participating in brain games actually can help with cognition, but it's a team effort," says Dr. Brody-Magid. "You can't do it by doing crossword puzzles alone." And when you play brain games, select challenging games that push your limits. That way you'll see the most benefit.

I hope you enjoy the free information and resources in the Free Memory Tips newsletter below, and on my site, Including the free online brain games!

Stay safe and be well,
