Puzzling With Puzzles To Strengthen Your Mind

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Puzzles are one of my favorite past times as a kid. It was always a sense of accomplishment when I finally managed to complete one. Puzzles, as we know, are great for younger kids. It helps with their fine motor skills (including the important pincer grasp) and cognitive skills. But what about adults?

What can puzzles do for me?

Puzzles help improve memory since it is an activity that you need to remember specific shapes and colors that need to be pieced together. This is a great mental exercise for those that struggle with short term memory. Since working with puzzles strengthens and quickens your mental speed, this can help in other areas of your brain as well. This includes reducing stress and improving your problems solving skills.

Puzzles can also keep your mind sharp and focused since they require you to pay closer attention to small details on each piece. This is a great skill that you can apply to anywhere in your life, especially when working on projects in the home or even in the workplace. Studies even show that working on puzzles can even help delay diseases like Dementia and Alzheimers. How amazing is that!

So why not puzzle to work out your mind?
