Aside from having a new book coming out later this year The Rush to Spend I picked up a hobby I used to do years ago – Chess! Really excited with five checkmates in a row, the game is amazing for the brain!
If you want to enhance memory, and keep your mind sharp, chess is an outstanding mental challenge that keeps the brain moving, active, and thus increases memory and many cognitive functions.
In a world where everyone has an iphone in their hand, yes, you can play chess on your phone as well! http://chess.com is a great site. You can play live – which is my favorite, or play the computer. You can analyze your game to improve moves to learn more.
This is just something I wanted to share with you.
