Our brains are also muscles and can be exercised like a muscle. I do cross word puzzles and I have this book, with large colored pages where you have to find the differences between two similar photo’s . As you go through the book the puzzles become more advanced. What is geat about these types of puzzles are, you use many parts of your brain, depth, color, and more to locate the differences. I believe these types of puzzles are so important to helping to keep our brains healthier. You can have fun while doing it too. Games like puzzles, crossword, word finds, concentration and even scrabble and clue can help exercise your brain. Reading is a great way to keep our brains healthy. Try ” The Secret She Hid in the Night” by Kim L. Valente. A great book with lots of twists & turns and it is the perfect length, ot too long, not too short, Available @ LuLu.com – Barnes & Noble.com @Amazon.com Happy New Year All !!
