Most people agree that regularly going for a run, a bike ride, or a long walk is vital to keep the body healthy. You feel more alert and lighter after a little exercise.
But what many people forget is that our brains also need a workout from time to time, to clear up all the stress from work and adult life in general.
Of course, we use the head all the time, even while we sleep. But sometimes you need to put everything aside and let the brain “stretch” a little with a few good ‘ol brainteasers, so you can get those brain cells moving.
After a good round of brain-teasing, you’ll often feel that you can think a little clearer and have an easier time concentrating on important things.
There are plenty of brainteasers, as long as you know where to look. If you are content with the ones in the back of the morning newspaper, you’ll have to make do with crossword puzzles or sudoku.
But if you look online, several new challenges are waiting for you, one trickier than the other.
