Challenge your brain with a variety of activities.
Start with a four- or five- letter word and spell it forward then backward. For example, clock would be kcolc.
When that becomes easier for you, try doing longer words. Another idea is to pair the letters of the alphabet from A to Z with a corresponding number.
Start with A1, B2, etc. If that is too easy, try it in reverse: A26, B25, etc.
