Happy National Puzzle Day! Puzzles have existed since the 1760s — and isn’t that amazing? We have always been intrigued by mind games and, when we think about puzzles, we may think of the typical 1,000-piece puzzle. However, puzzles can be many things: there are riddles, jigsaw puzzles, sudoku, and so much more.
It has been discovered that puzzles not only stimulate your memory, but also your creativity and problem solving. The benefits of working on a puzzle imply practicing concentration and finishing an objective, plus the adrenaline of finishing and giving yourself a pat on the back.
On a personal level, puzzles have always helped me through moments of personal crisis. They serve as an amazing way to disconnect from our modern ways, drink some coffee or tea, put on your favorite music or show, and work on something that is entirely personal. Even the election of the puzzle you want to work on is your own — it can be your favorite art piece or even a photograph.
Hope you swim by next week with a few puzzles under your belt!
