  • I totally agree about the importance of exercising the brain and the concept of”use it or Lose It”. We now know that the brain is plastic, in that it’s development doesn’t stop when we reach adulthood. We can strengthen, and grow new, neural pathways. We can also weaken areas we don’t use enough. We are living longer and are more aware of keeping in shape physically, but quality of life is diminished if can’t function properly because of memory loss.

    The internet is an amazing resource for learning anything and most of it is completely free. I’ve been taking free courses on a wide range of subjects on Future learn. Some I had only a fleeting interest in but they developed my curiosity to want to learn more.

    I also use lumosity (there is a free version) to exercise my brain. It’s fun to use.

    Thanks for Lumosity Sue, will check it out. Everything I do is based on preparation and exercise, especially with singing and my music. That helps me a lot, but there are some other things I want to improve on too.

  • Hi Barrie,

    Great post as always. Keeping the brain fit is so important. I try to do this in a number of ways like puzzle, reading, writing, Leigha’s maths homework lol. I actually like reading two book at a time sometimes on the same subject just to get my brain coming up with its own theories.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Beth 🙂

  • Hi Barrie,
    Well now I am thinking of ways to exercise my brain.
    I know that doing crosswords are good for people with early
    Alziemers but really not much else. Working on line and writing articles would be a form of brain exercise I would think.
    Will look up brain exercises. Thanks

  • Hello Barrie.

    I, too, feel the importance of keeping your brain in tip-top shape is extremely important. I believe that our quality of life is very important.

    Our brains are very complex. What a waste if we let them just stagnate with boring day-to-day sameness. We need to mix it up!

    I, for one, need stimulation in order to be happy. Our thoughts are very powerful so we have to keep our brains in good condition. 🙂 Maximum efficiency should be important to each of us but I am so surprised by those that take drugs and use other stimulants without even considering what they are doing to their brain.

    Great post, Barrie!

    I need stimulation too Deborah to stay alert. I can’t be like some people who sit in front of the TV and “exist”. Music has got me back into that stimulation and it has helped so much with everything I do

    This is an awesome post and you are so right that there is so much benefit to execise the brain. It is believed that when one is old, the brain begins to be less functional but we have seen older people do make a difference with their genius brains. Age is just a number.

    Thanks so much for this post. Take Care
