LIVING WELL IN RETIREMENT


Brain Games to Keep You Sharp

At Kiplinger, we like to joke that much of our content is like broccoli. That is, rebalancing your portfolio or updating your homeowner's policy may not be the most exciting part of your day, but you know our trusted guidance is good for you and your bottom line.

Well, then, here's your dessert -- fun online games specifically designed to keep your mind sharp as you age. Play them as a reward for first digesting several helpings of retirement-planning advice. Or, perhaps better yet, play them as a warmup to get your brain ready to absorb and retain the valuable guidance across Kiplinger.com. Kiplinger brings you the games via Lumosity, one of many companies now developing games with the help of neuroscientists and the promise of enhancing brain functions the more you play. The games are free for you to play here at Kiplinger.com:

Raindrops

The Rain Drops brain game seeks to enhance your problem-solving skills by challenging you with a torrent of quick math questions.
