Physical exercise is one of the keys to living a healthy life, just as the right nutrition is good for us as well. But knowing how to keep our brains in shape is not something everyone does. There are many studies that show how keeping our minds active can help improve daily life. So just as good nutrition and physical exercise keep blood flowing to our brains, cognitive or mental effort helps our brains and keeps the cells growing.
Each month at the Headquarters Branch we will be hosting a Brain Garden program for adults and teens. Information on various brain tips will be presented. Then there will be plenty of time to socialize, play various computer games on our LaunchPad tablets, color with a wide range of materials, put together jigsaw puzzles, play some challenging games, such as Mah Jong, listen to music and much, much more. In fact, the program will keep growing each month.
Brain Garden is held the on the last Monday of the month from 1-3 p.m. Upcoming dates are Jan. 28, Feb. 25, Mar. 25, and Apr. 29. There will be no May meeting due to the Memorial Day holiday. See you at the Garden!
