Do you ever feel like your brain is turning to mush while working from home? It’s hard to keep focused without someone telling you what to do. In this day in age, most companies offer the option to work remotely for some of their employees or even all of them. 

That means that you’re able to set your own schedule and come into the office when it suits you best. The downside is that many people find it difficult to focus on tasks for long periods of time while working at home and they often struggle with burnout because they feel like they don’t have enough structure in their lives. A great way to combat this feeling is by using brain exercise games while working at home so we can keep our brains engaged and fresh!

1. Elevate


You’ll need to download an app to play Elevate‘s 35 (and counting) different brain training games, which have a strong educational feel. It’s free (with in-app purchases) and both iOS and Android versions have tens of thousands of five-star reviews.

Elevate’s games center on reading, writing, speaking, and math, and you can customize your training to focus on whichever areas you prefer. As with most other brain games, you can track your progress to see how your skills are improving.

2. Sudoku

Sudoku is a number placement game that relies on short-term memory. To complete a Sudoku puzzle, you have to look ahead and follow trails of consequences—if you put a 6 in this box, that one must be an 8 and this one a 4, and so on. This type of planning helps improve short-term memory and concentration.

You can play Sudoku online, on an app, or on paper. Look for a regular Sudoku in your newspaper, buy a book with a collection of puzzles, or download a free app for your phone or tablet.

Sudoku puzzles are available in varying degrees of difficulty. When you’re starting out, play the easy games until you learn the rules. If you’re playing on paper, use a pencil!

One of the best ways to improve your mental health is by maintaining a healthy body. At first, caring for one’s physical health may come at the expense of looking after their mind but this does not have to be true since you can easily take care of both simultaneously. Eating right and exercising are all great things that will help you maintain an overall healthier lifestyle which in turn boosts feelings like happiness or peace within us over time so it’s important never to underestimate how powerful these two factors are when they work together!

One way people who want more mental clarity do better with taking care of themselves is by eating well and getting active throughout their day as often as possible without letting excuses get in the way such as feeling busy or tired because even though

4. Learn Something New

Playing an instrument is a wonderful way to learn new things.

Playing an instrument, like the guitar, for example, can be incredibly rewarding and you’ll find that it’s very easy to pick up on how different chords work together. It makes learning other musical instruments much easier because your fingers are already accustomed to certain motions required for playing them as well! You will always feel accomplished after practicing something hard because of this sense of accomplishment that comes with mastering any skill; not just music but also sports or academics too! Furthermore, when you play in front of people who have never seen what you’re doing before they may ask questions about where exactly did I come from? Or why do my hands look so weird right now? which opens the door wide open

5. Draw a Map of Your Town From Memory

When I think of the downtown area where my family still lives, what comes to mind is a lot of traffic and noise. The roads are narrow with no sidewalks on either side; cars line both sides up and down the block out front. On one corner sits an ice cream store that smells like heaven in the summertime, but it’s always crowded because there aren’t many other shops around for kids to hang out at if they’re bored after school or don’t have anything else planned on weekends yet. There just isn’t much variety here except for all these old buildings which used o be factories back when this town was booming before globalization took over our economy completely.

When I remember home, “traffic” and “noise” come first

6. Meditate

Meditation can be a great way of relieving stress, maintaining good mental health, and improving your focus.

7. Build your vocabulary

Having a strong vocabulary is important for effective communication. A person with an extensive command of words can convey their thoughts clearly and precisely, as well as make themselves more appealing to others in conversation. Practice using new words by reading books or articles that you know will challenge your understanding of the written language; this also allows you to expand on those topics later when discussing them with friends or family members who may be less familiar than yourself about these concepts. When trying out a word during the everyday speech, use it several times over multiple conversations so that people understand how it works and what its definition actually means instead of relying on context alone which could lead listeners astray if not done correctly.
