How can puzzling be good for your life?
You may be someone that loves solving puzzles. Maybe as entertainment, a way of alleviating stress in daily life or problem solving is something you enjoy. Some of us may have read or know why puzzling is rewarding or good for the brain. Let’s take a look into why this can be the case.
Boredom can be turned into productivity if you start puzzling
Those rainy days where you feel sheltered and safe at home and you have no clue what to do with yourself other than play with a puzzle. Keeping the mind occupied keeps your brain sharp and alert. Fixing a problem can have wonderful effects on the brain and enhances your creativity. Some may say that you need patience and a natural ability to be a problem solver. But is that really the case? Can anyone be a puzzler? Probably! So when you are bored, perhaps keep your brain agile with a puzzle!
Test your patience and improves your level of persistence
Are you a patient person or not? Some of us are and aren’t. If not, it’s okay. Puzzles can test your patience and improve your level of persistence if you stay dedicated and focused. There is no better feeling than getting somewhere with a puzzle you never thought you would reach. Taking the Revomaze for example, those moments where the pin keeps on moving and no clicks seem to happen for some time and for a moment you feel like your hard work is paying off! The ‘A-HA’ moments never get old.
Opens you up to a whole other world
A chance to be connected with other puzzlers on the planet is a key advantage of becoming a puzzler. You come across a variety of puzzles that are out there and suddenly you dive into a world you never even knew existed. The Rubik’s cube is said to have 43, 252, 003, 274, 489, 856, 000 possible configurations which are MIND-BLOWING!
Puzzling relates to real life
We all can be confronted by problems in real life which we have to cope with. Puzzling is just that. It is problem-solving and being resolute that you will tackle this problem. When other people’s creativity shows clear as day when they invent something like a puzzle, it can inspire you or others to bring their great ideas into real life. Puzzling can be said to be life-changing as well as something people enjoy.
So there we have it! How puzzling can be good for your life! I hope you got something out of this blog today. If you didn’t, please leave your own comments below on how you believe puzzling has a good impact on a person’s life, or if it doesn’t. Before I started at Revomaze, my interest levels in puzzles were non-existent. I never thought about purchasing a puzzle or even becoming entertained with one. Word searches maybe, but I never thought I would encounter a puzzle-like Revomaze which still astonishes me to this day.
If you had a similar experience you would like to share let us all know!
