I have recently downloaded the Elevate and Lumosity apps, which offer free, daily brain exercises accessible through my tablet and smartphone. I have begun incorporating this into my schedule for at least five minutes a day, specifically focusing on memory games. The short amount of time this takes makes it an achievable goal for most people. Take the extra five minutes out of your day and intentionally spend it on your brain! You’ll thank yourself later.
All in all, our brain health is just as important as our physical health. With the awareness of brain health, we can make a difference in our lives and choices! Next time you’re creating a self-care routine, I hope this blog reminds you to think of your brain, too. We only get one to live with, so remember to take care of it and yourself!
