Why Adults Are Turning to Puzzles
If you thought smartphones and tablets had made puzzles obsolete, think again!
It’s true that, nowadays, you’re more likely to see kids playing video games than putting together traditional puzzles. But, adults are turning to puzzles more and more, both to unwind and to challenge their brains in a new way. Here’s why:
Improve your memory
Solving puzzles helps reinforce existing connections between our brain cells. It also increases the generation of new relationships. This, in turn, improves mental speed and thought processes.
Better Problem Solving Skills
Puzzles require us to take different approaches to try and solve a problem since there’s a lot of trial and error involved. We also learn the value of formulating theories, testing hypotheses, and changing our perspectives when something doesn’t work out according to plan.
Delay Dementia and Alzheimer’s
Studies show that keeping the mind active through puzzles and other problem-solving activities can reduce the amount of brain cell damage that occurs in Alzheimer’s patients. It also supports the growth of new nerve cells and strengthens the connections between them.
