A different kind of New Year's fitness resolution: Fit Brains

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, January 6, 2016

A different kind of fitness resolution for the new year.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    Becoming more fit is on lots of New Year’s resolution lists this time of year.   There’s plenty of technology that can help.   And that goes for brain fitness too.   The folks at Rosetta Stone have continued to sharpen an app called Fit Brains, adding what they call an emotional intelligence training program.   Co-Founder Dr. Paul Nussbaum…

“When you go to the app, it’s going to help you engage in some exercises where you’re going to be asked to identify your own emotional experience for the day.   I think one of the first questions I got asked when I logged on today was how I was feeling, what was my emotion.  Then, some exercises will emerge where you’ll have to identify in particular circumstances what the emotion is.”

The new Fit Brains app is available for free on IOS,  with the original cross platform version available on Android and online as well.  You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
