Doing puzzles is widely considered a complete brain exercise since it exercises both sides of the brain. The right is in charge of creativity, emotions and intuitive thinking; and the left is the logical, objective and methodical side. When you do a puzzle both sides must interact and work together, increasing cognitive function and activating in the area where the brain associates colours and shapes. Exercising the mind helps prevent cognitive decline. 2. GREATER ATTENTION TO DETAIL. When solving a puzzle, it is crucial to pay attention to details, you train your eyes to find the small differences in colors or shapes that will help you complete the image. The ability to capture small details can help us in all aspects of our lives, when we are more detailed and precise, the quality of our work improves. 3. IMPROVE MEMORY. Doing puzzles strengthens neural connections and increases the generation of new connections, thus increasing mental speed and thought processes. When we pick up a piece, you have to search among the others for a color or shape that you have in mind and visualize the image on a large scale to see which pieces will fit together. When you exercise the part of the brain in charge of storing this information helps to maintain and improve short-term memory. 4. IMPROVED PROBLEM SOLVING ABILITY. To solve the puzzles you take different approaches to try to solve a problem, since it is a trial and error test. You also learn the value of formulating theories, testing hypotheses, and changing your perspectives when something doesn’t go as planned. 5. BETTER MOOD & DECREASED STRESS. Solving puzzles increases brain production of dopamine, giving us a rewarding feeling every time we get a piece in the right place, resulting in a calmer more relaxed sense of well-being.
