Have your say

FOR many people, the new year signals the start of a monthly direct debit designed to get your body into shape.

Lumosity sparks a similar drive to get your grey matter in the groove, offering the richest brain-training experience around.

With more than 35 exercises on offer to gamers who upgrade from the free app to the full online web experience, there’s no excuse for being a slouch in the problem-solving department.

But this freebie alone offers an equally intense intellectual workout with three exercises per day, designed to improve different areas of your brain, from speed and memory to attention and flexibility.

Scores are logged to monitor your progress and measure your Brain Performance Index (BPI), leaving you desperate for the next day to come to improve your tally.

And you don’t need to go near a gym...
