Brain Bridge -Cognitive Stimulation Activities Box

Why it is important to include cognitive activities in the routine

A recent research published in the Journal of Neurology states that Engaging in a higher number of mentally stimulating activities, particularly in late life, is associated with a decreased risk of mild cognitive impairment among older persons.

Brain bridge activities material are curated for older adults(Age 58+) to improve performance and effectiveness of cognitive capabilities and executive functions such as memory, attention, language, reasoning and planning.

How art helps the brain

Neurological research shows that making art can improve cognitive functions by producing both new neural pathways and thicker, stronger dendrites. Thus, art enhances cognitive reserve, helping the brain actively compensate for pathology by using more efficient brain networks or alternative brain strategies. Making art or even viewing art causes the brain to continue to reshape, adapt, and restructure, thus expanding the potential to increase brain reserve capacity.

How to use the Brain Bridge workout activities :

  • A diversity of activities gives maximum opportunity to practice many important thinking skills. So you could set Mondays for worksheets, Wednesdays for puzzles and end the week with beautiful art.

Tip : want to make activities challenging for yourself ? Time yourself while solving worksheet or mix the two jigsaw puzzles to make it 70 pieces and challenge your brain.

  •  It is recommended that you have a ‘brain workout’ session of 30-60 minutes every other day and try to keep the workout constant during that time. Think of it as taking your brain to the gym..
  • Similar to physical exercise, cognitive training may work even better when done with other people. This is not only more enjoyable but may also increase our level of effort, but also helps with overcoming barriers such as scheduling and boredom. Can you engage in cognitive activities together with someone at home? If not, try to team up with a friend over video chat or the phone.
