When we are growing up we get enough mental exercise to keep the brain engaged and develop cognitive skills. For most people same is not true as we grow older and become fairly set in our routines. Though, no one route to mental wellness is perfect, but if you’re looking for an accessible way to get started, you might give Lumosity a try.
Few months ago I stumbled upon lumosity.com, (you’ve probably seen their Youtube and TV commercials). Quick, fun and intelligent set of exercise (games) is now part of my morning ritual on most days. Three reasons why Lumosity deserves a serious consideration
Like every person I’ve ever met, I seem to never have enough hours in the day. And despite efforts to invest in my creative time and personal development, sometimes I only have 10-15 minutes of down time in a single workday. Fortunately, Lumosity can work with that.
- Fun and Intelligent
While graphs and percentage charts (science behind them) are part of Lumosity’s programs, I liked that most of the actual games are lighter in spirit and easy to dive in to.
- Track Results
Lumosity stores all scores, times and other statistics to give you a comprehensive look at how much you’ve improved (or declined) in certain areas.
Overall I discovered that, at least for me, small changes every day can lead to eventual results, just like other exercises such as yoga and meditation – you must nurture all the parts of your being.
