You will be hard pressed to find someone who wants to be hazy in their golden years. Instead most of us dream that we will remain sharp as tacks and talk circles around our teenage grandkids.

It seems that each day more research is released on ways we can keep our minds active. Our bodies, like cars, require some maintenance to keep things running smoothly.

Scientifically, brain exercise strengthens the synapses or con­nec­tions between neu­rons, thus improv­ing neu­ron sur­vival and cog­ni­tive func­tion­ing. Cumulated men­tal stim­u­la­tion through­out our lives (via edu­ca­tion, our jobs, leisure activ­i­ties) can help build your neu­ro­pro­tec­tive cognitive reserve.

Fortunately, there are some fun ways your can keep your mind active.

Here are Silverado’s Top 3 picks to keep your mind sharp.

  1. Art, painting are drawing are great ways to get the creative juices flowing.
  2. Crosswords, are complex word puzzles which keep you on your toes!
  3. Sodoku, for people who love numbers this is the game for you.
