Brain Training

I'm so pleased!

I've just done my brain training on day 4 and have managed to lower my brain age from 72 to 37! Yay.. my brain is now younger than me :) I just hope that in 6 months time I don't lower my brain age to that of a 3 year old LOL. According to the scientist who created the brain training, the optimum age for your brain is 20 years old. That's when it's at it's best working capacity. So, 17 years to restore.

I think that the thing about the training is that it gets you to do things with your brain mathematically and visual recognition as fast as you can, and this means that I am doing challenges on the training that I would never do in normal real life. I rarely need to use my times tables, and I certainly don't count how many people enter a house and leave a house to be able to know how many are still in the house. Confusing? Nah, it's not that bad. I'm really enjoying it though to be honest. So much so, that I ordered a copy of 'More Brain Training'. This is the second version and has different challenges to the first one, including things like how much change to give. With not working and just being at home with a 3 year old and doing all the boring day to day tasks I don't suppose I get to use my brain that often, so this has given me a new challenge and I'm loving it!! The one that does get confusing is colours of words. A colour such as blue will pop up on the screen but it will be coloured yellow. You have to speak the colour of the word, not the word itself. Trying to convince my brain that the answer to RED is actually BLUE is a bit of a challenge LOL

Wow! From 72 down to 37.. yay.. I'm chuffed to buggery as my dad would have said LOL
