Mental wellness plays a significant role in your life. You can characterize good mental health by performing essential functions and the ability to feel and learn.

You can prioritize your mental wellbeing and reap the benefits of a healthier and sharper mind. Here are some five tricks you can implement to keep your brain healthy and in tip-top shape.

Play Games

Playing serves as a mental workout. This is because, when engaging in games, your brain will release endorphins, also known as the feel-good chemicals that improve your mental agility.

Games are a fun way to keep your mind sharp. Experts recommend games like Sudoku and board games to keep your brain active. Moreover, video games help improve your thinking ability attention span.

You employ logic and reasoning when playing various games, which is good exercise for your mental health.

Try Something Different

You can use different activities to keep your brain active. For instance, you can try new dishes, travel to new places, and even take a new route to the store to add something new.

Doing new activities in different ways will help retain your brain connections and cells. Your brain will be less vulnerable to cognitive impairments. 

These ailments may include dementia caused by damaged brain cells in charge of your thought process. This condition may lead to hearing loss, requiring you to use hearing aids and dementia treatment when needed.

Try breaking out of your daily routine and keep your brain active and healthy.

Read More

Experts recommend reading for your brain development. When you read, your brain processes every word and recalls its meaning promptly.

Furthermore, reading enables you to picture the article's subject matter and imagine what it sounds like in written dialogue. This technique is suitable for relaxation. Additionally, it has also helped people and kids develop mathematical and cognitive skills. 

Reading is essential for the mind since it uses different parts of the brain. One of the best things about reading is that you'll have vast materials to choose from and put your brain to work.

Spare Sometime for Mental Fitness

You do not have to spend every second on mental fitness. A few minutes well used will help you think better and clearly.

 As time goes by, try adding some activities to your mental fitness routine like memory workouts, relaxing, and visualizing. By doing so, your brain will rejuvenate, and you will experience overall wellbeing.

Focus On One Task

Your brain is set to do one task at a time. You might think multitasking can enable you to do multiple things effectively, but the truth cannot be any further. Various actions taking place at the same time will distract your brain.

With that in mind, it would be better to focus on one thing and give it your all, rather than doing a lot of low quality work. The better focus will improve your mental wellness and concentration, making you more productive.


Mental fitness is essential to keeping your brain and body in good shape as you age. Add the above tips to your fitness routine, and your body and mind will thank you for it.

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
