Here are a couple things I do:

 

On my iPad mini, I do crosswords before sleep with the Puzzazz app (similar to Across Lite, but more features in free version). There are tons of free crosswords for Across Lite and they all should work in Puzzazz as well.

 

Recently, I was checking out some free online course providers, and came across the Kahn Academy. As a goal, I decided to do every single course they have avaliable, from the most basic up to whatever level they have as highest. I like Math and Physics, and look forward to a basic refresher, then to dig into the higher stuff again, perhaps on Stanford or similar online site. Maybe I can be an astrophysicist when I grow up 😆 🚀💫

That’s very nice that you play game with your granddaughters and keep up with the internet. I watch videos on YouTube, there’s a lot of educational content for free and I love watching videos about math. I also love spending time watching different challenges. Recently I started watching this girl, Rebecca Zamolo, and her 24-hour challenges on YouTube, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rzcAgxXiqO8 . It is great fun and really entertaining. I tend to watch her videos when I want to relax for a bit after a long day. Give her a try, maybe you’ll also be captivated by her series.

I play lumosity - the brain challenger games- the free one of course and it's loads of fun.  Your brain will be moved in different ways.  I also do games on Facebook with people from around the world.  One I really enjoy is Texas Holdem Poker.  Another mind bender is Pyramid Solitaire!  I play with 70 people. The good thing is you don't have to play friends, you can play with anybody.  Want a fun game and so cute, with adorable music? - check out Panda Pop, my granddaughter introduced me to this game and it's another favorite!

want to battle MONSTERS?  Yes, big ugly monsters- yes, they are tricky- but you have help, weapons- Monster Busters-!

This game is a real mind Bender in soooooooo  many ways,a real challenge- Lost Jewels-

I also like Pet rescue Saga, it's a cute game trying to rescue pets, dogs, cats, etc.

Dont like Facebook- well just play games like I do- you don't have to socialize- just Retrain Your Brain and Have Fun doing it!!!!

oh, one last game you can play with your grandchildren, Truth or Dare,  you can do it however you like and We All Love it! Improvise!! It's an App.

I'm 76..   At 50 I took a painting lession at the local highschool and it evolved into a really nice hobby..   At 70 I began studying the cello...   At 74 I switched and began studying classical guitar..   (It's easier to carry)..     Also I do crosswords, sudoko and read quantum physics for fun (was just curious, turned out to be interesting)..    I also take care of an eight acre property by  myself, mowing, gardening, clearing snow.  Do it all under the loving eye of my wife, 63, who still works as a registered nurse..   Trick is - Don't think about the age, its only a meaningless number - still think I'm 30....

I am a newsletter editor of a women's organization and use the computer and Internet extensively.  I also hit the treadmill for an hour every other day.

I appreciate your effort to recover your health and getting good marks in examination as well. Only a few have this kind of strength to fight with difficult situations and make a great victory. Hats off to you.
