If you are like me and you are having trouble remembering things like the name of the actor from that movie…oh, you know the one! It’ll come to me..
Or you walk into a room to do something, only to get there and realize you have forgotten what you were going to do…
I don’t know if it’s old age or stress, but this is becoming so bad that I have started noticing it myself, so it’s time to do something about it.
A few weeks ago I was driving home from Snowshoe with my best buddy Holly when she started telling me about an app that she uses to combat forgetfulness. I was immediately intrigued, considering my recent struggles.
Enter Lumosity! It’s basically a personal training plan for your brain. You can easily find it on the Apple Store, and it’s free unless you want to upgrade and unlock more “brain busters”.
I’m sorry- I just watched this the other day so I had to post!
Here’s how it works: After you download there is a fit test that calibrates your starting point. You are able to unlock other games in the app depending on your performance, but if you want to unlock the full site (40+ games) you have to pay, and it’s not cheap. If you want to commit to 2 years you can get it for $5 per month, but the price just goes up from there. The monthly price is $14.95! *coughripoffcough*
The app helps with speed, memory, attention, flexibility, and problem solving.
What I like most about the app is that it really does treat the games you play as workouts, so when you finish your games once through it says that you are done with your workout of the day, and see you tomorrow!
I don’t know if it’s just me, but that makes me feel as if I’m making some progress. People are always talking about improving their body, sometimes we need to improve our brain too!
Have you tried Lumosity? Let me know what you think about it!
