Benefits of Playing Regular Solitaire

Mental Health

How would you define good mental health in old age? 

 

  • ‘Remembering where I left the car keys.’
  • ‘Knowing the names of all my grandchildren and great grandchildren.’
  • ‘Remembering to dress in the morning.’
  • ‘Following a good joke.’
  • ‘Enjoying more moments than not.’
  • ‘Getting and receiving ten hugs a day.’
  • ‘Opportunities to give and receive love.’

 

The list could go on forever.  But let’s talk about old age mental health in more scientific and medical terms.

 

Focus

We can all agree, that having a good ability to focus our attention and thought on one thing at a time, is a healthy sign in old age.  To play solitaire well, one needs to be able to focus on one task or assessment at a time.

 

 

Concentration

Concentration is an important aspect of focus. Solitaire requires one to be able to concentrate on multiple forcing at one time. Many simultaneous decisions must be made to get good at solitaire.

 

 

 

Problem Solving

The game of solitaire requires one to hone one's problem solving skills.  These multiple problems must be looked at individually,and also in the context of the whole game.  Solitaire provides a fun way to get daily mental exercise, thus helping to keep our minds functioning and sound as we age.

 

We can recommend trying your favorite game of solitaire against your computer.
