Brain Building: My Routine

Posted on November 22, 2007 @ 6:07 pm

As I get older, my mind gets slower.  I really don’t care to get slow or dumb – it is important for me to be quick on the draw for what I do.  Anyway, I try to give my brain a workout each day to keep it strong and learn new things.

Lately, I have been doing crossword puzzles to workout my brain.  The nice thing with them is that it takes just a little time out of your day to do one, but the benefits are obvious.  You learn new information (via clues and solutions) as well as work on your spelling (which I could use a bit of work on that).

I also tend to use free online crossword puzzles as opposed to getting a crossword book – not just because of the price, but rather because I have access to a computer all day.  I just take a break from what I am doing and work on a crossword for ten minutes for a break.

I have considered making my own crossword puzzles, but I do not want to do it on paper.  I have found a free crossword puzzle maker online that I am going to try out – but I will have to leave it to another day as I am too busy right now.

So, take the time to give your brain a workout each day.  Use my routine if that works for you, or there are plenty of other ways to workout your brain – just make a point of doing it.
