So, for a little extra cash and because it sounded like a really fun assignment, I find myself reading about the founder of Cranium Crunches, Ruth Curran. After I felt well-versed in where she’s going with this, I start checking out their various social media properties, listed below, because that’s where I tend to travel most. After a little feedback back to the company of some improvements they could make on same, I dive into a game. It’s this one, Match!
After playing just one round I find that my brain feels a little recharged. It’s funny, I’d just been writing recently that I want to be entertained less, and be more active in life, and this certainly feels like that result.
Next up I learn that one should practice brain fitness as much as possible and that they provide a new “everyday thing” that one can do on their fan page each week. Here is the most recent one I could find – part of the Find the Difference set of games. But this game is a little too difficult to me, and I’m also interested in a more active game to pick up my energy at 4:30pm. I still have some more work to do after this on a couple projects!
Cranium Crunches: “It helps us feel as if we have a bit of control over what happens to our brains as we age.” from an interview with Ruth Curran, Founder Cranium Crunches.
So, I try a scramble. Tough, but the way the game is designed, I’m looking forward to working on this one more. It’s funny, in the next image I try to unscramble, my first thought is that I wish the picture were different – it’s a sky full of chem-trails. And, I know some great photographers! So, perhaps there is an opportunity there.
More about the Games Page: “Brain games help fire pathways in the brain – keep the chemicals and electricity that nourish and fire the brain active and moving. There is so much research out there now to support the tangible benefits of playing a variety of games and working on a variety of skills. The unifying theme though is this: active brains not only age more slowly but injured brains can also heal, re-wire, and open new pathways through an activity.” from an interview with Ruth Curran, Founder Cranium Crunches.
So, now they’ve got my Sesame Street side – “One of These Things is not like The Other” – OK, I’ll bite! 4:48… Wow, that’s a tough one – and, I’d recommend having your screen set for greatest brightness. Again, I’m going to talk to the company about the photographs they’re using, but I live in paradise, so perhaps that’s part of my bias 🙂
So, if you’re looking to improve your brain, or help someone you know this might be worth your time. I was about to say – “someone you know who is experiencing brain issues” but then I realized that it’s never too early to start a program like this. I’ll probably update this blog posting as I learn more about the games and try them out more. Until then, happy thinking!
