Wellness Wednesday

It's Wednesday already, this week is flying by.  For your wellness Wednesday tip this week, I want you to focus on the health of your brain, and your memory.  No matter how old or young you are, it's always a good idea to stimulate the brain (and not just with social media or tv).  I encourage you to step out of your comfort zone; read more or different material than you are used to, try your hand at puzzles (crosswords, or sudoku), learn a new language, learn a new craft, learn to play a musical instrument, or play memory games (not candy crush).  Stimulating your mind, keeping it active and healthy will help fight off dementia and Alzheimer's.  You'll be surprised how even your daily memory will improve.  Keep in mind, that an active brain also needs rest, so try implementing a little meditation in there too.  Improving your brain health is essential in order to have a well Self, Soul, and Space! Have a well Wednesday friends!

Here are some of my favorite brain activities...
Word finds
Reading (fiction, non-fiction, research/study material)
Trivia games (trivial pursuit, & battle of the sexes)
Word games (taboo, catch phrase)
