Games are a great way for players of all ages to boost mood, strengthen bonds, and improve cognitive strength


By Kathy Penner

It’s not easy for different generations to find mutually interesting topics of conversation. Family visits can be awkward or boring, reducing the likelihood of more frequent get-togethers.

The good news is that board games not only entertain people of all ages, but playing them offers many benefits, including stronger social bonds and increased cognitive health.

The founder of Health Fitness Revolution, Samir Becic, notes, “Keeping your mind engaged [with games] means you are exercising it and building it stronger.”

Becic’s top reasons for playing board games include:

  • Increased endorphins (“happy chemicals” that improve mood, lower blood pressure, and boost the immune system)
  • Strengthened bonds with family and friends
  • Improved cognitive strength by practicing skills such as problem-solving and math

So dig up your old Monopoly or Connect Four game and let fun bring you and your loved ones closer together.
