Many people think that the only recreation they need is for their body. This need is fulfilled by playing some sports or some other activity that includes physical strain, but what about our brain? Well, even though it doesn’t require the same kind of exercises like our body does, it does need some kind of recreation just to keep it working and doing something when we’re doing nothing. So let’s get over some ideas on what you can do to entertain your brain while not doing anything tiring or hard:
1) Firstly, let’s go with Sudoku. Sudoku is a highly addictive number-placing game, which makes you think about your every move before you do it. This game consists of 9 boxes on a table and in each box, there are different numbers. Each of the boxes should be filled with all 9 digits and in the same row; there must be no same digits. This game has various levels of difficulty and it can be really addictive and fun. It improves your short-term memory and your concentration as well, which helps you in your everyday life.
2) Second, we have some sports betting. Sports betting existed since the creation of the first sport. It has been there since the very beginning and many people do it today on a regular basis. And even though it is practically impossible to win all the time, you can actually entertain your brain with sports betting. If you really get into it, and if you really want to win, you’ll try and analyze everything. If you’re betting on a specific team, your brain will want to see what the chances for that team to win are. So it can be really helpful for your statistical skills and analysis skills and also it is just a lot of fun seeing your prediction comes to reality.
3) Thirdly, we have crosswords. Crosswords existed since the 20th century, maybe even before that. They are made to access not only your verbal language but also to train your memory and improve your knowledge. A classic way to find crosswords is to go to your local store and just buy any newspaper or buy a special magazine that is literally filled with crosswords. Also if you don’t want to go to the store right now, no worries, there are lots of crosswords to find online and entertain yourself. Maybe the online ones are better because they will always immediately tell you if you’re wrong about something.
4) Lastly, we have MyBrainTrainer. My brain trainer is an online “brain gym”. It can be very fun and relaxing if you want to chill and just enjoy yourself. It’s filled with puzzles, crosswords, games and other things to help you relax from everyday worries, and at the same time activate your brain muscles. MyBrainTrainer is a perfect tool to get your brain in shape. It’s relaxing yet effective. Unfortunately, this app is not free. You have to purchase a 3-month subscription which is not that expensive but it’s not free like Sudoku or crosswords which you can find anywhere.
