Video games help keep your mind and memory sharp

Last year, I shared a study out of California that showed playing 3D video games could actually improve your memory in just 30 minutes a day, which is why playing games like Pokemon Go – no matter what your age – is more than just the latest craze.

Apart from getting dedicated couch potatoes up on their feet while setting them off on a scavenger hunt it turns out that taking a little time to play one of those 3D video games may just save your mind and memory!

It all comes down to the spatial information that helps exercise your mind and literally jog your memory…

Now, I know that a lot of the recent headlines have focused on distracted people walking into objects… getting into car accidents… or even falling off cliffs with their mobile phones in hand. Don’t be one of those people. That’s the last thing you want. As you get on in years, your ability to recover from even a minor fall isn’t what it used to be – so just be aware of your surroundings while you play.

Still, there’s no denying that games like this is getting people off their couches and up and moving, which is always a good thing. And it could be just the thing to motivate you to run around town.

We already know that remaining active by even just walking, can help you live longer, helping you improve both your mind and body.

It can reverse Alzheimer’s symptoms… fight muscle loss… and even beat back cancer!

And what’s more, this just might be a way for you to spend more time with your grandchildren this holiday season. After all, they’ll probably want to show you how to play.

With a little practice, you might even get good enough to beat them at their own game.

Wishing you the best of health,
