Keeping your mind sharp when you’re losing your mind with business travel isn’t easy. This week’s post offers some great apps that you can download to keep your mind occupied and sharpened while traveling for business or leisure.

1. New York Times Crossword – This extraordinary application will fully challenge your brain. For $40 a year, you will receive new puzzles daily. The application starts on Monday with relatively easy puzzles but by Saturday, your brain will be pushed to the limit as the level of difficulty progresses.

2. Fit Brains – Designed for iPhone and iPad users, the app includes multiple games that train very specific functions of the brain including language, logic, and memory. Based on the way the games work, you have the ability to compare your results with others so you can see areas that need additional work compared to those in which you excel.

3. Lumosity – In addition to playing games on the iPhone and iPad, you can also gain access on the company website. The games are easy to understand yet challenging. To track progress, a special performance index is used. Unfortunately, there are limitations with the free version but for $60 a year, everything Lumosity offers can be enjoyed.

4. Peak – Although this app is only available on iPhones, it is still a great choice. In exchange for paying a $35 annual subscription, you can play sliding block puzzles, word-find puzzles, word and math puzzles, and more. With consistent play, you will begin to see a difference in your brains function.

5. Elevate – This brain-sharpening application is designed for the iPhone and iPad. You can play free while unlocking games as each one is conquered or if preferred, pay $5 to gain access to all 25 games. Although this particular application seems simplistic compared to others, it gets positive results.
