Hazard

Holes in the pavement

and black ice – dont really make good conditions for

zipping about on a winters morning

as one or the other will see you flat on your back or

rolling about on the floor – worse still – the

drop might see you in a hospital bed

Salford 21st February 2020

A tale of ‘recovery’ from brain injury by inky

#Fowc #Progress

I

Waking up

Washing face

Without falling or dropping stuff or

Walking out of place

Progress

II

Remembering a face from a

Reel of names without

Reaction causing

Regurgitation

Progress

III

Collecting your Cocoa from

Carol at Costa without

Causing an earthquake

Causing Cascades to the floor

Progress

IV

Reading a really good book, while

Relaxing, without

Rolling into a deep

Sleep

Progress

V

Remembering what you went

Right down the stairs for – without

Reactions, disturbances or plain forgetfulness

Attention BASIC Concentration Memory

A-Maze-Ing

colored maze vector graphics

This weeks session @ BASICs Memory Workshop focused on

Attention and Concentration

As part of the session, we were given two maze puzzles to do.  Now, the aim wasn’t to complete the puzzles – more to concentrate on doing them and maintaining the focus of going round the mazes.

As we did the mazes, we were asked to note when our attention slipped – as usual, mine went around the hour when we had a tea break in the café!!!

I found it difficult in places – as my hand tended to slip as I moved around each maze , but it got easier as I concentrated on the task in hand

In Honour of the groups work – I’ve found a little maze on Google graphics. and I’ve left it above for you to try.  See if you can make your way round the maze without your attention wondering (suggestion: don’t do this around meal times!!!)
