When you want to strengthen your muscles, you lift weights.
If you want to improve the concentration and focus of your
mind, then you need to work out and exercise your brain.
The correct brain exercises will improve the way your brain
works and develop better focus and concentration.
As we age, we may lose the ability to concentrate, but
brain exercises can improve concentration even in older
people. Brain exercises are excellent tools for people
of any age who would like to strengthen their mind!
Here are some great brain exercises that can help you
build your brain:
1. Do some crossword puzzles. Not only are crossword puzzles
a lot of fun, but they can help improve your concentration.
Relying on your long-term memory and trying to solve tough
questions help stimulate the brain.
Taking only 15 minutes daily to work on crossword puzzles
can benefit you.
To keep a fresh supply of puzzles handy, you can buy a
crossword puzzle book, check your daily newspaper, or look
online to find them for free.
2. Changing your daily routine challenges your brain to
do something that’s outside your comfort zone. This can
strengthen your problem solving abilities.
Consider changing things by taking a different route to
work one morning and then finding another on your way home.
3. Try Sudoku puzzles. These are number placement puzzles
based on logic. You complete a 9×9 grid so that each row
and each column only has numbers that range from 1-9.
Within the grid, in each 3×3 block, a number can only be
used once. Most definitely challenging!
These puzzles are often found in daily newspapers, printed
books, and online.

oils like olive oil or fish oils.
Eat foods that include omega-3s, such as trout, salmon,
and tuna, which are oily fish. Some nuts contain these fats
as well and are healthy food for the brain.
5. Start a new hobby. Trying a new hobby is another way
to expand your interests and use your brain to learn
something new. Being busy and learning new things expand
the way the brain thinks and gets you out of a rut.
Join a local club or take a class at a hobby store or
Challenging yourself and improving brain function is
something that any person can do. Young and old alike
can enjoy and benefit from these great techniques. Get
your whole family in on the fun!
Make just one change today to stimulate your brain.

time and practice, eventually you’ll find that you can
finish puzzles quicker, solve problems more easily, and
