I am so excited to share with you, my readers, an exciting new digital platform called Staying Sharp from AARP!  This is a great web tool with plenty of features.  The goal of #StayingSharp is keeping our brains healthy as we grow older.  I also am doing an exciting giveaway to 20 readers! If you’re a lucky winner, you will get to try out the Staying Sharp program FREE for 1 Month! See all the details below at the end of this post.  Must enter by 2/28/17!

I know with even some of the older Millennial crowd reaching age 30, Brain Health will impact more and more of us soon!  If you’re online for down time and relaxation but find yourself tired of the same games, news pages and social media, definitely head over here and check out #StayingSharp.

I may have piqued your interest but you’re wondering…what exactly is it?  Staying Sharp is a subscription based web service from AARP.  You can access recipes, articles, games and more.  It uses a holistic approach to provide science-based, personalized tools and recommendations that allow you to track and measure brain health progress using five key focus areas or “pillars”:

  • NOURISH (eating right)
  • MOVE (keeping fit)
  • RELAX (managing stress)
  • DISCOVER (learning new things)
  • CONNECT (being social)

So, why does it work?  If you’re interested in answering the questions of How well is my brain? and How am I performing against others in my age range? Staying Sharp can help. It gives you a personalized “brain health plan” to promote your brain’s heath! Research shows that these five pillars or areas of brain heath are important to us.

Just enter some basic information to get started. If you would like, you can opt for the free account to get started.


From my own point of view, I know I am on top of my game and feeling great when I am taking care of myself in all five of these areas, especially with relaxation and discovery.

I’m excited to start my own subscription and explore the platform for myself.  As you know from following Consumer Queen and My Royal Kitchen, I love new recipes and and am enjoying the journey into using organic products and promoting wellness for my family and readers!


Staying Sharp’s science is also backed by the Global Council on Brain Health, with professionals from around the world working to promote brain health related to human cognition. I know the science of brain health is very important to many of us who are getting older, or perhaps caring for an aging loved one.

I can honestly say I am excited that this platform is from AARP, since it is a household name and I know to most of us it’s important to have a reliable source for any online subscription!

I hope you found this review helpful and have a chance to check out #StayingSharp and see the features.  Just head over here to see it for yourself!
