Richmond, VA (PRWEB) May 31, 2012
Millions of women in their 40s and 50s won’t be surprised to learn that the memory problems commonly referred to as brain fog are real. Results of a recent University of Illinois study validate the condition of brain fog and offer explanation as to what is happening when women enter menopause.
The team at DaisyBrains.com is on a mission to underscore the importance of adding brain exercises to the workout routines of women. “When I entered early menopause I felt so frustrated. I felt like I had the attention span of a housefly. Keeping track of the details of a hectic schedule took extra effort,” says Carol Hammond, an office manager in Phoenix, Arizona.
Daisy Brains co-creator, Claire Herring states, “Exercising your brain is a critical part of building a healthy lifestyle. Women can have unique challenges during certain life periods because of rapid changes in hormonal levels. We hope to provide an engaging way to exercise memory and concentration skills and offer accurate information to support women in maintaining a brain healthy lifestyle.”
Since its launch in February 2012, Daisy Brains has seen a steady increase in new female members. Brain training games are created across key cognitive domains including: concentration, memory, problem-solving and verbal speed. “The site is dedicated to women's health and brain fitness, from the artful design to the creativity challenges in the Sketch Gallery. We want women to feel excited about exercising their brains. Our team develops new challenges each day,” says Herring, a speech-language pathologist and cognitive trainer.
