Had a weird and long Christmas, an early train ride through the woods, visiting both my and my husband’s moms and feeding the Club 4-H pig (our annual Christmas Tradition!)
As a pressie for all 5 of my readers- haha, I would like to share some of my fave websites that keep this adventurous mom sane through the crazy days and nights. (These are NOT affiliate links, just a bit of share-love!)
My kids say I don’t play enough games (they are referring to my smart phone which they try to slip from me- hmm, wonder why I don’t keep MineCraft on there- really? But I do play! (I argue) Luminosity and Elevate have become my favorites- they only let you play 3 of their brain training games a day-(unless u make the in-app purchases) but that is fine by me, three is plenty. I love word games in Elevate but wasn’t too keen when they added the math- not my favorite subject- they let u switch game choice now, probably because other people weren’t too keen on the math either!)
DUOlingo remains my favorite. I’ve been brushing up on French for quite a while, but added Italian (LOVE!) and Spanish- even tried Gaelic briefly- not my forte obviously! I love linguistics and follow blogger Benny the Linguist through his language learning tips/antics/helpful links. Thanks Benny!
I’ve been meditating for over a year now and have the Omvana app. They give lots of freebies for guided meditations (Bob Proctor is a fave of mine), as are the Ocean Waves. U can mix voice-guided with background ambiance, or just use one or the other alone. You can check out Elevate, Luminosity, Duolingo & Omvana in your smartphone app store too)
