16 Brain Exercises for Seniors

We all want to keep our brain sharp as we get older. What works best? Tasks that use the senses – sight, smell, hearing, touch and taste – are more stimulating to the brain and get remembered better. The more senses you engage, the stronger the memory.

The brain needs novelty, too, so shake up your routine by trying something different. Use your non-dominant hand to put those jigsaw puzzle pieces together. Give up the crossword for a week and do sudoku instead. Anytime we learn something new, even a simple task, the brain is prompted to grow new neurons and make new connections.

Research shows that puzzles and online challenges are fun and helpful, but the two best potions for brain health are exercise and socialization. So include friends whenever you can and take that 30-minute walk around the block each day.
