I have to admit, that I am a bit surprised by this week's WI. I know I did well last week and the scale didn't cooperate, so this is just the scale's way of saying I did well. Tonight at our meeting we discussed intellectual wellness. Last week, I had DS with me when we talked about emotional wellness and I didn't get much out of it. This week, it was back to normal...well, maybe not. There were horrible thunderstorms in the area during the meeting and made for quite an eirie site. Intellectual wellness in terms of taking care of your mind; crosswords, sudoku, learning a new song, foreign language, etc. Our leader challenged us to do something out of the ordinary this week. I always do a crossword, usually learn at least one new song weekly, and I'm always learning German at work. I will work to use my DW's Nintendo DS this week. It has a program which tells you your brain age after giving you several timed tests. My brain has been working at 50 yr. level, gotta try to get at least in the 40's this week.

My daughter bought me the Nintendo and that Brain Age program for my birthday and it is fun...also a good indication of how much my brain power decreases when I am tired or distracted. The little guy who leads you through the program needs to be caged!!!
