Taking care of the mind is just as important as keeping our bodies in shape. The brain needs exercise at regular intervals. Of course, you use your brain constantly at work, however, there is always a bit of stress involved with that. Your career depends on you performing well and not making mistakes, which gets draining after a while.
However, brainteasers are a great way to get rid of this stress and anxiety. Sharing a similar idea with meditation or light exercise, puzzles help your mind put all worries aside for a moment – just enough to relax, breathe and recharge your batteries to face adult life once again.
With that said, another benefit of solving brainteasers regularly is that they can help you think more creatively.
Some skills that characterize smart people are usually quick thinking, solving problems with ease, and unbound curiosity.
However, it is possible to train these qualities through mind exercises – like reading backward, for instance.
