Brain work-out time. Everyone relax ...

The importance of keeping fit and active is a feeling that surfaces especially when friends and associates of a similar age talk at length of telly programmes
and not much else.
Little above the neck is being exercised, it seems to me, while they are flopped before a small screen, and even less below.
Most of us know it is important to keep at least relatively fit physically. But what about the equally important – or rather more important – cerebrals?
What to do to keep the cerebrals up and running and not shrinking?

Perhaps cramming a few chapters from a Britannica each night might be a helpful start.
And yet, surprise, surprise, rather the opposite is recommended. Such as a game of card. Cards! Or jigsaw puzzling, even dancing. Dancing???
Sara Lindberg writes in that great encyclopaedia of sorts which arrives in the inbox most days, Healthline dot com, that the brain like any other part of the body needs to be cared for, too.
People of all ages can benefit from incorporating a few simple brain exercises into their daily lives.
‘Whether you’re putting together a 1,000-piece image of the Eiffel Tower or joining 100 pieces to make Mickey Mouse, working on a jigsaw puzzle is an excellent way to strengthen your brain.
