Word games have grown in popularity over the years. Did you know they can also help keep your brain healthy?

"My idea about those types of word games is if you enjoy them and they’re giving you a challenge so you can’t do it on auto pilot, you really need to think about it, then it’s really serving you a good purpose in terms of supporting your brain health for life,” said Jessica Caldwell, PhD with Cleveland Clinic.

If you’re not into word games, there are plenty of other options. For example, you could do a crossword puzzle or play another kind of puzzle game.
