Hi, I am wondering if there is any brain exercises(possibly free) to do to make my brain more mentally fit and as best as it can be for myself. I want to exersize everything or all areas, making my brain balanced in every erea, specifically to improve memory and/or shot term memory to start with.

Recently I have noticed I forget to do simple tasks like flush the toilet after I use it, leave the mail key in my mail box at the apt complex I live in and other simple tasks witch is on reason I want to do brain exercises to start with memory/short term memory to get that to stop. The other reason I want to exercise my brain is so that by the time its in its best state, I can do bodybuilding to get ripped and other things related to that witch has been a goal of mine for years. If I don't exercise my brain first then I think I would be like a chicken running around with its head cut off therefore making it much more difficult to complete the exercises.

I have a severe mental disability called schizoaffective disorder and so I am thinking I would need some sort of brain rehab exercise/s to start with before I could move onto normal or regular brain exercises due to my mental condition. Does that even matter? do I need brain rehab exercise first? or can I just move onto the regular brain exercises?

I have searched for information on brain exercises on the net and a lot of it says the same thing however I read a article on brain exercises that basically said a lot of the stuff doesn't do anything for the brain or not much and that crossword puzzles will only make you better at crossword puzzles rather then increase or improve your memory. Because of this I do not want to do anything that is pseudo science or that wont work plus making it a waste of time. I am also thinking that IQ and EQ testing could help me improve my brain state/health, is this true?

is there any brain exercises out there I can do that wont cost a dime to make my brain be in its best possible shape or at least improve my memory/short term memory?

We cannot offer medical advice on the PF. Because of your disorder, it's very important that you talk with your family medical professional (doctor, etc.) about these questions. It would be so easy for us to give you the wrong advice for your particular situation.

Sorry, thread must be closed now.
