Brain Health Is Where It's At

By Donna Stark

It doesn't matter if it's the daily crossword, a game of clues, a fantastically impossible riddle, or a bunch of pieces in a box, everyone loves to solve a puzzle. There's nothing quite like the utter satisfaction of solving what's in front of you. But doing so pales in comparison to what puzzles can actually do for your overall health and wellness. Want to learn more? Of course you do! After all, getting to the bottom of things is a favorite pastime of those who love to solve "mysteries," and if a puzzle isn't a mystery at heart, then what is?

A Sharp Mind

Keeping your body as healthy as you can should definitely be one of your top priorities, but while doing so, make sure you aren't forgetting about the health of your brain! Mental stimulation is vital for optimal well-being. Take a look at how puzzles, riddles, brainteasers, and thinking games can impact the quality of your life.

  • Boosts your brainpower
  • Helps your brain stay sharp and strong
  • Aids in memory and learning
  • Sharpens focus and concentration
  • Helps develop new ways of thinking
  • Lowers stress and anxiety levels
  • Improves moods
  • Increases independence
  • Reduces the risk of cognitive decline

Incorporating More Brain Challenges Into Your Life

As you can see from above, there are many reasons why you should incorporate more brain challenges into your days. Here are some wonderful suggestions from your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic on how to do so.

  • Daily workouts - Your brain is a muscle, so be sure to schedule some time every day to give it a proper workout. Pull out a book of puzzles, download a concentration game on your phone, or invite a friend over for an intense game of chess.   
  • Try something new - Partial to word scrambles? That's perfectly OK if you are, but do try to give your brain something new to solve. Remember, your brain loves a challenge!
  • Enjoy the quiet - Do you enjoy your quiet nights in? If so, turn the TV down and give your brain a chance to really focus on putting a puzzle together. There is nothing more satisfying than placing that last piece in its proper spot.
  • Solve a murder - Check your local restaurants for those that offer dinner, drinks, and murder! Murder dinner parties are great fun and the perfect way to both feed and work out your brain.

Brain Health Is Where It's At

Do something that will make your brain jump for joy! Give it a challenge and keep it healthy by diving into a new puzzle every day. You won't be sorry for doing so.
