PlayWithYourMind.com: 100+ Original Brain Fitness Games

Ithaca, NY (PRWEB) August 31, 2009

In a time when more and more people are asking how they can improve their brain fitness, PlayWithYourMind.com has emerged as an answer to that question. With over 100 different original games, puzzles, and other exercises to train the brain, PlayWithYourMind.com is one of the preeminent destinations on the web for cognitive training and mental fitness. A sharp and healthy mind has never been so accessible.

Over the past couple decades, our understanding of the brain has gotten a makeover; rather than the static model previously postulated, science has now conclusively demonstrated that the brain is dynamic and ever-changing. The organization and capabilities of the mind are largely shaped by experiences, and this sculpting that begins at birth continues throughout old age. This process is called neuroplasticity, and it’s a beautiful thing. It’s the process responsible for the development of a child’s mind, the dramatic recovery of patients debilitated by strokes, and the cultivation of genius, among many other amazing feats. It’s also something that everyone can take advantage of to become more clever and capable; whether it’s baby boomers looking to stay sharp, professionals hoping to improve on-the-job performance, students looking to improve their grades, or the average person just trying to grow a little smarter, brain exercise can benefit just about anyone.

As a result of this new understanding of the brain, the past five years have witnessed the emergence of numerous different studies touting the potential of brain exercise. Countless different brain training products have followed, each hoping to capitalize on this movement. These days, it seems as though a new brain fitness product emerges every week. With so many options now out there on the market, how can a potential customer hope to choose the right one?

Several things set PlayWithYourMind.com apart from the various other websites offering brain fitness games. First of all, there is its diversity. Play With Your Mind has games to exercise your verbal abilities, problem solving skills, memory, attention, visuo-spatial skills, eye-hand coordination, processing speed and various other aspects of your cognition. Secondly, there is quantity: between the word games, logic puzzles, brain fitness program, memory workout exercises, puzzles & brainteasers, Play With Your Mind offers over 100 original mind games. Thirdly, it’s about personalization, as all the brain fitness games and memory exercises can be customized to an individual user’s needs and abilities. And lastly, it’s cost: PlayWithYourMind.com is completely free.

Additionally, PlayWithYourMind.com offers more than just brain games. It’s also a great place to learn the about the latest findings in neuroscience, pick up some brain fitness tips, or learn about other websites and resources pertaining to cognitive health. Webmasters or bloggers can get brain games to include in their sites in exchange for a link; or customized games are available for licensing. Founder Alex Colket is passionate about neuroplasticity and unlocking the potential of the mind, and this passion is visible in the numerous offerings and activities available on the site.

PlayWithYourMind.com is a unique destination for brain fitness exercises, so stop on by, whether during a break from work, a breather from school, or an escape from household chores, and “Play With Your Mind.”

I need ideas for healthy food to pack when my daughter goes to away games?

Question by ♥ severelynormal: I need ideas for healthy food to pack when my daughter goes to away games?
She leaves at 7am and when there is an away game does not get back until 8pm-9:30pm. She says sandwiches, even pb&j, go bad. The schools she has visited so far do not offer anything substantial other than nachos-which her coach deems unhealthy and makes them do drills. We do the granola bars, fruit, trail mix but it is not much for such a long period of time. Any suggestions or packiing tricks would be greatly appreciated! I am putting it in this category hoping to hear from experienced parents!

Answer by sportyh4509
I am just like your daughter! I normally grab fruit or something, but I keep it in a safe place where I know it won’t get smashed. You could try to pack the pb&j sandwiches like you said, but instead of a plastic or brown paper bag try to put it in something more secure and will keep not only the freshness but the flavor as well. umm.. you could maybe just go with peanut butter.. or just get a small jar of peanut butter and give her the bread and a plastic knife and then she could just make it herself. Just an idea thrown out there. I can’t think of anything else right now because I normally have fruit. But my school also has nearby restraunts within walking distance and we normally have time to go up and grab something before we leave for an away game. Or another thing is.. but with the price of gas i doubt you would want to do this.. but you could go and drop off something she could eat.

Castro Valley, CA (PRWEB) May 7, 2006

The NoteNiks Healthy Eating & Exercise CD-ROM, has been selected as a recipient of the Institute for Childhood Resources Dr. Toy Smart Play/Smart Toy Product of Excellence Award for 2006.

The CD-ROM, which debuted earlier this year in partnership with software design veterans NoteNiks.Net, is the first piece of educational software that teaches children ages 3 – 8 the importance of selecting healthy foods and keeping active.

“This is a CD-ROM that will get your child excited about eating healthy.”

Dr. Toy. (a.k.a. Stevanne Auerbach, Ph.D.)

To celebrate this award selection, and a similar award from iParenting Media, the NoteNiks.Net team has just released upgraded ( v.1.1) release of the Healthy Eating CD that offers an all new class curriculum which helps educators and parents alike share healthy eating lessons with their children both on the computer and off.
