Last Monday, I fell in a hole and twisted my knee. When I saw my doctor, he suggested that I kept my leg elevated for a few days. I have to admit that daytime TV can get boring quickly. Since my husband had already bought the Wii system, I was able to play without moving... and at the same time pump up my brain power.
Big Brain Academy Wii Degree is a program that uses five types of activities to get your brain limber. These activities (Visualize, Identify, Compute, Memorize, and Analyze) use numbers, fast photos, faces, and etc. These activities can be harder than they seem when you first try them. I really enjoy a compute activity where I pop balloons from the lowest number to the highest number. Okay... sounds easy???? except the program and throw in negative numbers.
Funny, I have a sterling reputation at the academy. I get a lot of silver medals. Also, you can take a test that will really test your medal. My head was aching and my hands were sweating when I finished. I really had a great time.
So if you like some mental olympics, try out this program.
