Exercise for a healthier brain...

Thursday, July 18, 2013

I love puzzles - crosswords, Sudoku, on-line solitaire, especially spider solitaire. When I sit and work on these (when I could be exercising) I tell myself that they are good for my "senior" brain. But I came across this article today:

I have my food under control (for the moment), and I am showing some weight loss (probably water). However, my main exercise consists of resisting it - it is hot and muggy and the mosquitos are out in droves - you know all the excuses.

So just for today I am going to get some physical exercise, for my brain if not anything else!!

    Thanks for the link. This is not surprising - and really is good to know.
    I'm feeling even better now about that walk i take 5 days of the week.

    Like you, I also enjoy spider solitaire and other games.
    Every time I get on an airplane, I usually bring a puzzle book with me to keep me occupied.
    They are fun to do - whether or not they help the brain. Right?

    I couldn't get the article to come up will keep trying.

    The key to exercise is finding something you love. I love Biking so it is easy for me to head to the bike. I don't like the elliptical so I avoid it. ;-)

    I have not been exercising due to my injury. I could be doing some ST but haven't. Tomorrow I see the Orthopedist to see if I have to have surgery (torn meniscus) but I am hoping he says PT.

    Good luck as you move forward. emoticon emoticon
