One of the first things to go as we get older is our memory. Over the past few years there have been a selection of online games which have been designed specifically to stimulate the brain and to encourage a quicker response time.


A lot of us tend to sit in front on the television and just nod off while the programme drones on. Although it would be a better idea to do something else to occupy their time such as reading a good book, doing a crossword puzzle or playing a game on the computer.


Sudoku is what I use to keep busy but my husband is still a big fan of Donkey Kong; however, my sister is a huge fan of playing Angry Birds online. When it comes to free time, it is up to you to spend it how you wish but doing nothing all day long will mean you get into a vegetative state and it is hard to come back from that.


Gambling is not something that I would actively encourage because of how it can have a disastrous affect on the life of some people. But computer games are not the same as online gambling and are actually a great way to help people relax after a long day at work or in the home.


When it comes to how you spend your free time, it is up to you what you do with it and if angry birds online or another computer game takes your fancy, go for it you never know, you may just enjoy it!
