The Benefits of Puzzles

Puzzles are beneficial to everyone, no matter what age they are. For children, puzzles are a learning tool that increases their hand-eye coordination and cognitive skills.  For adults, puzzles keep the brain active thus decreasing the chances of Alzheimers and Dementia. Puzzles are also helpful when it comes to increasing a person's IQ as well as their overall mood. 

(Any kind of puzzle is good for you whether jigsaw, crossword, or word-search)

For your own health, try incorporating puzzles into your daily routine. Did I mention, puzzles are also great for decreasing anxiety and stress?
