Yum, Cranium Crunches – a review

Cranium Crunches

So, for a little extra cash and because it sounded like a really fun assignment, I find myself reading about the founder of Cranium Crunches, Ruth Curran.  After I felt well-versed in where she’s going with this, I start checking out their various social media properties, listed below, because that’s where I tend to travel most. After a little feedback back to the company of some improvements they could make, I dive into a game. It’s this one, Match!

After playing just one round I find that my brain feels a little recharged. It’s funny, I’d just been writing recently that I want to be entertained less, and be more active in life, and this certainly feels like that result.

Next up I learn that one should practice brain fitness as much as possible and that they provide a new “everyday thing” that one can do on their fan page each week. Here is the most recent one I could find – part of the Find the Difference set of games. But this game is a little too difficult for me, and I’m also interested in a more active game to pick up my energy at 4:30 pm.  I still have some more work to do after this on a couple of projects!

Cranium Crunches: “It helps us feel as if we have a bit of control over what happens to our brains as we age.”  from an interview with Ruth Curran, Founder Cranium Crunches.

So, I try a scramble. Tough, but the way the game is designed, I’m looking forward to working on this one more.  It’s funny, in the next image I try to unscramble, my first thought is that I wish the picture were different – it’s a sky full of chem-trails.  And, I know some great photographers! So, perhaps there is an opportunity there.

More about the Games Page: “Brain games help fire pathways in the brain – keep the chemicals and electricity that nourish and fire the brain active and moving. There is so much research out there now to support the tangible benefits of playing a variety of games and working on a variety of skills. The unifying theme though is this: active brains not only age more slowly but injured brains can also heal, re-wire, and open new pathways through an activity.” from an interview with Ruth Curran, Founder Cranium Crunches.

Now they’ve got my Sesame Street side – “One of These Things is not like The Other” – OK, I’ll bite!  4:48…  Wow, that’s a tough one – and, I’d recommend having your screen set for the greatest brightness.  Again, I’m going to talk to the company about the photographs they’re using, but I live in paradise, so perhaps that’s part of my bias 🙂

If you’re looking to improve your brain or help someone you know this might be worth your time. I was about to say – “someone you know who is experiencing brain issues” but then I realized that it’s never too early to start a program like this.  I’ll probably update this blog posting as I learn more about the games and try them out more. Until then, happy thinking!

Happy GroundHog Day!

My friend Betsy asked me how I find LinkedIn useful, and one of my answers to her has to do with any social network.  When someone asks me to connect on LinkedIn or Facebook, I usually accept and then have a customized message (if I don’t know the person) which says hello and asks them if they’d like to receive my newsletter. Most accept the invitation and then possibly become future clients, friends, referrals, who knows?  It’s a time-consuming process, but has led to positive results.

Here are the examples that I’ve worked up for Facebook and LinkedIn.  Yours could be personalized for the work you’re doing
