Whether you’re working on-site, from home, or not at all, the current pandemic has been an off-time for everyone –across the world, not just in the United States. We’ve had to spend our usual routines, homeschool our children, and even find new ways to have fun and entertain ourselves, in order to prevent further spread of COVID-19. While you may have digital socialization down-pat—with chat apps, like Zoom and Houseparty, or social media platforms, such as Facebook and Instagram—it might be time to learn how to further entertain yourself without the help of others.
That’s why Westmount at Summer Cove Apartments has created this blog, full of brain-busting games that will feed and nourish your most important organ. It will also keep you occupied during a weird stage of our lives, where we are finding new ways to pass the time and partake in self-care. Check out our favorite brain-feeding apps below:
Easily the leader of the stimulating mind game market, Luminosity has become a household name over the past decade. Since 2007, the app has developed a thriving community of over 75 million users— and growing! When you start the program, it will evaluate your current standing in a number of different areas regarding cognitive function. Then, the app will create a training plan for you to complete 15-minutes a day. Best of all, it’s completely free—well, unless you want all the bells and whistles.
CogniFit Brain Fitness
CogniFit Brain Fitness is an app that’s like CrossFit for your gray matter. Remember, a sound mind is just as important as a sound body –so, the name of the app completely makes sense! CogniFit is composed of 10 challenges that measure cognitive ability, memory, and spatial perception. Not only does this app strengthen various functionalities within your brain, but it also has capabilities to heighten your emotional awareness. CogniFit is literally for everyone, even having a special program for sufferers of Multiple Sclerosis.
Remember the electronic memory game of “Simon” of the 90s? No, duh –we were all obsessed with Hasbro Games! Well, if you were a fan, then you will get a similar pleasure out of playing Circles. This digital game is essentially a minimalist app with an uncluttered presentation, and it makes for a powerful impression on your big, beautiful brain. Circles are the same concept as “Simon” and challenges you to watch and repeat a sequence of colored lights and electronic sound. It’s a perfect match for the nostalgic personalities out there!
