Exercise Your Brain
It all starts with the brain
One of my personal and professional goals is to help women keep their brains healthy so that they last a lifetime. Women’s brains have a special journey, with different experiences and challenges from those of men—from pregnancy and childbirth, to caring for loved ones, to mid-life and beyond. To live the life you want and achieve your goals requires a healthy, happy brain at each one of these life stages. Through my ongoing research into brain health, I found BrainHQ: a wonderful online tool for brain health, based on the best knowledge and research neuroscience has to offer.
Brain training that's right for YOU
As with physical exercise, we all need to train our brains at the right level for us. BrainHQ adapts to each individual using special algorithms, so when I train with the program, it’s a little different from when you do. The program keeps each of us training at a challenging level where our brains are most likely to improve. It can be hard but that’s because changing the brain takes work—just like changing your body does. It’s worth the effort.
Designed to fit into your life
I’m busy, and I bet you are too, which can make it feel hard to fit something new into your life. Fortunately, it takes less than five minutes to do each BrainHQ level, so you can use it in small bites or long blocks, depending on your schedule. Plus you can use BrainHQ on almost any computer or mobile device, so you can take it on the go. If you find it helpful, you can set up personal training goals and have BrainHQ send you training reminders to keep you on track. If I can fit it in, so can you!

- You'll notice that the exercise gets a little harder if you're doing well, and a little easier if you're having trouble. Each exercise adapts to you.
- Training in each level takes less than five minutes. (If you stick with BrainHQ, you'll repeat that level several times. Repetition is important for brain change!)

Two ways to train your brain
BrainHQ has 29 online exercises that work out attention, brain speed, memory, people skills, navigation, and intelligence.
If you want, you can have BrainHQ tell you exactly which exercises to do, and in which order. The personalized trainer feature, designed by scientists, continually measures your performance and serves up the exercises that are right for you.
Or if you prefer, you can design your own program, choosing exercises and workouts that meet your personal interests, mood, and schedule.
The cognitive benefits are proven
What makes BrainHQ different from other programs is its commitment to science. Hundreds of university-based scientists came together to design, test, refine, and validate exercises in BrainHQ. So far, more than 100 peer-reviewed science papers have shown that using the program improves performance. Explore below to see what these studies have found.
