Socializing & Building Relationships for Brain Health


Did you know socializing can boost your brain health?

Connecting with friends & family is one of the easiest ways to maintain a novel environment for our brains.  Friends & family provide opportunities to communicate, interact, and share experiences. They also provide the necessary motivation to stay mentally active and involved.

Socializing and sustaining a social network can seem difficult or daunting, but keeping in touch can be as easy as picking up your phone!  If you’re having trouble getting started, how about trying these 6 simple steps…

Your Game Plan for a Strong Social Network:

  1. Open your address book – Search your brain, book, or phone for your list of contacts.
  2. Pick your priorities – Categorize your contacts into 3 groups: Family & closest friends, Good friends, Casual acquaintances. 
  3. Make a plan to connect – Based on your priorities, determine some people you want to connect with weekly, monthly, quarterly or yearly and mark reminders in your calendar.
  4. Follow through – Contact them in advance to schedule the get-togethers. If they’re not there, leave a message.
  5. Reschedule – If your friend or family member can’t make it, plan another day to reconnect.
  6. Meet & play Fit Brains together! – Once you meet, make sure you have something to do.  Playing Fit Brains is a great idea as you can have fun together & compare scores.  A little competition with your friends & family will also keep you motivated to continue to train & improve your brain!

By playing Fit Brains for 5-10 minutes a day, you can quickly improve & easily prolong your brain health.  It’s probably the most fun & enjoyable exercise you will ever experience so take advantage of it!

All Fit Brains games are categorized into the 5 major brain areas of Memory, Speed, Concentration, Problem-Solving, and Visual.  Below are some tips to help you find out what brain area you should focus on:

  • Play Fit Brains Memory games if you need help remembering exam notes, remembering presentation speeches, and recalling what your professor taught in class,
  • Play Fit Brains Speed games if you constantly run out of time to write exams, if you want to answer questions faster when a professor calls on you, or if you want to improve your processing time and skill when reading textbooks.
  • Play Fit Brains Concentration games if you have a hard time focusing on studying, if you constantly fall asleep in class, or if your mind wanders around a lot when writing exams.
  • Play Fit Brains Problem-Solving games if you want to get better at noticing issues and problems, analysing information, and finding effective solutions in a timely manner.
  • Play Fit Brains Visual games if you need to improve on identifying differences visually.  These games are most useful for students that consistently need to look at highly visual details or images, and students that look at charts and fluctuating numbers on a daily basis.

6 Tips To Relax The Mind

Sometimes, the influx of work and daily to-dos are stressful for many of us.  Our brains will likely become exhausted on more than a few occasions so we need to remember how to relax the mind!

Here are 6 tips from the Fit Brains team to help you clear & calm the brain during those stressful days!

  1. Yoga / meditation – Practicing yoga or meditation will help relax the body, mind, and soul. Sign up for a trial yoga class, many community centers will offer the 1st class for free. You can also try meditating at home by sitting in a comfortable position, closing your eyes, clearing your mind, and thinking about one specific but stress-free thing for 10-30 minutes.
  2. Keep hydrated – Drink lots of water to keep your body hydrated and clean. Toxins can build up in the body if it is dehydrated, which will often clog up the mind.
  3. Listen to music – Listening to music you enjoy triggers natural endorphins in your brain, so take a break and listen to some soothing music that you love.
  4. Shut off your brain – Do something mindless and/or repetitive. Activities like easy chores or light exercises are good because they don’t require a lot of thinking. Good examples are swimming, folding laundry, going for a walk, doing the dishes.
  5. Eat right – Cut back on stimulating foods such as coffee, energy drinks, sodas, and candy. Also try to avoid processed & artificial foods. You are what you eat so you need to eat healthy to have a healthy mind!
  6. Treat yourself – Do something you love and know will lower your stress level. We have all been living in our bodies long enough to know the things we like to do that will help us relax. Sometimes all we need is a break! Take a nap, get a massage, melt away in a bubble bath…do whatever you need to do to recharge yourself!

While brain breaks are great once in a while, don’t forget to keep your mind active on a regular basis to maintain its optimal performance! The Fit Brains Trainer app is great for exercising the mind without any burden of stress.  If you have kids, they can develop their brain skills with our new Fit Brains for Kids app as well!

In the Media:

The original Fit Brains Trainer has been highly successful, used and praised by people all over the world.  However, we have gotten many requests for additional tools & products and we knew we had to start expanding our training to the entire family.  We saw the lack of a comprehensive brain trainer for young children, and heard from many of our fans that they wanted a Fit Brains app geared toward their kids.  It was here that Fit Brains: Sparky’s Adventures was born.

We hope this new app will bring education into playtime fun for your children.  Leave us a comment below and let us know your child’s experience with the app!
