Mr. O slumps back on the armchair, and declares, "I'm mentally drained."
This is what happens when you haven't played chess in a long time.
Tsk. Tsk. Tsk.
I've always believed as we get older, we should keep physically but mentally active.
We all have busy lives. Often going through the same, old routines.
Why be boring?
Why not change your routine? Do things differently once in awhile.
Go outdoors. Go for a walk. Read a book. Learn something new.
Exercise your brain! We all need stimulation.
In the evenings, I play Brain Age or do sudoku puzzles. And of course, I write and read a lot of books.
What's a few minutes a day?
I've encouraged Mr. O to do the same.
I may be old and a little forgetful but I like to keep my mind young.
