Keeping your mind active is one of the best ways to maintain a healthy memory and well functioning mind.
Brain games, puzzles, and daily mind exercises are an excellent way of giving your brain the workout that it needs on a regular basis.
Today’s activity focuses on subtraction and reversal. Although they may seem easy at first, these increasingly difficult mental tasks will test your cognitive abilities:
- Beginning at 96, count backward, deducting 4 each time (96, 92, 88…)
- Starting with the letter Z, recall the alphabet backward by skipping a letter (Z, X, V…)
- Starting at 188, count backward, subtracting 13 each time (188, 175, 162…)
- Beginning with the letter Z, recite the alphabet backward by skipping 2 letters (Z, W, U…)
