The goal is to live a long and healthy life, with the recall and memory of our youth. While there are a lot of contributing factors to keeping your brain healthy and young—there some fun and crazy ways you can do just that!

Play

Somewhere along the way, adults decided that playing is immature. However, playing is excellent for your brain! This includes playing with your kids, niece, nephew, friend’s kids, and grandkids. However, you must also allow yourself permission to be silly, spontaneous, and playful. Why? Because play requires creativity, and creativity is brain healthy. You can even play a board game, card game, or video game.

Get Creative

Speaking of creativity and brain health, if playing is not your thing—spend more time being creative:

  • Sign up for an art of craft class
  • Learn to play a musical instrument
  • Take a dance class
  • Revisit a creative endeavor you haven’t done for years

Try Things With Your Eyes Closed

As silly as it sounds trying day-to-day, yet safe activities, with your eyes closed creates a positive challenge for your brain. By taking your brain off autopilot to do stationary things like type, brush your teeth, or use a remote control—you can create healthy new pathways in your brain.

The key to brain healthy fun, is to keep doing and trying new things. As an added bonus, you are likely to have more fun in your daily life!
