    What an incredibly helpful article you have written about ways to strengthen the workings of the mind, David.

    Writing a blog is certainly challenging as well as solving the rubix’s cube.

    The difficulty involved in learning to play contract bridge is one of the many reasons I chose to take it up. It strengthens the mind.

    I had the pleasure of reading a book called The Brain That Changes itself where it talks about how the neural pathways of the brain change to meet the challenges of the tasks at hand.

    It is interesting that you suggested that we learn a new language. Just yesterday one of my blog subscribers from taught herself to speak several languages and I have already undertaken to study german for 30 minutes a day.

    Thanks for the post.

    Keeping it easy and breezy where less is more, Vita.

  7. Keeping yourself sharp by being active for both mind and body is a great benefit as we get older. It's really satisfying to have something or anything to do in your life, right? Even if we're already working, there's still a ton of learning opportunities out there, no matter how old you are, or  no matter how far the distance you've traveled.

    I was going to read this article but when I saw “Rubix Cube” I decided it's probably not worth it, because the author doesn't even care about correct spelling…

  10. Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering
    which blog platform are you using for this website?
    I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.
    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
