AARP: Keep Your Mind Sharp!

Mental health and aging specialists often remind us that to keep the old gray matter working at optimum level, we should challenge our minds.

Doing so can be as simple as working on cross-word puzzles or playing-along from home with television game shows in which contestants compete for money by answering random questions. See how many you can answer correctly.

Another easy way to test your memory will be found at the American Association of Retired Persons website where you’ll find opportunities to test your knowledge on a topic like baseball.

Here are some of the questions you’ll find at the AARP’s Test Your Baseball Smarts quiz:

“Which New York Yankees manager tied with Casey Stengel for winning the most World
Championships? ”

“How many Major League stadiums use artificial turf?”

“Who was the first Latino in the Hall of Fame?”

And, here’s one any fan of Abbot-and-Costello can probably rattle-off in a heart-beat:

“What’s the name of the 3rd baseman in Abbott and Costello’s ‘Who’s on First’ routine?”
