Easy Free Way To Stimulate Your Mind
Okay, everyone knows I have sustained a TBI, so I’m always looking for easy and fun ways to increase–or stimulate–my mind. As many of my readers are aware, I frequent Starbucks a bit. (I’m trying to employ the British penchant for understatement here.) Seriously, I spend far too much time and money at Starbucks. But occasionally, I can find something that helps me to achieve my ultimate goals–which are to stimulate my brain and help others do the same.
Starbucks provides free downloads of songs and occasionally apps for your iPhone or iPod. This weeks download was for an app that allows you to do crossword puzzles! Now, believe me here, I have never been big on crosswords. The problem I have is once you start getting one clue wrong, it throws everything around it off, and you’re screwed until the next day when you get the solution.
This app has puzzles for every level. From amazingly hard to simple. I didn’t realize how much fun these are! And unlike the puzzles you find in newspapers, these have the ability to check your answers either one clue at a time or the whole puzzle at once. Additionally, you can get just one letter at a time or if there’s one clue you need it can give the answer to you all at once! And what’s so cool is that there’s no judgement. No one’s there to make you feel like you shouldn’t be cheating!
