Regular Exercise - For your Brain!
Did you know that solving Riddles can be beneficial for your brain?
Of course there are many factors which contribute towards good cognitive health such as managing your diet, keeping physically active, getting enough sleep etc but Riddles (and other puzzles such as crosswords, wordsearches etc) can benefit your brain and help with Problem solving, Critical thinking, Memory, Creativity, Stress and of course can be great fun too!
When solving Riddles your brain is required to think both Logically and Laterally which allows different areas of the brain to be stimulated and that's a good thing.
Logical thinking is used to solve problems in a direct, straightforward way and Lateral thinking requires thinking creatively or ‘outside the box’.
Puzzles and brain teasers force your mind to exercise in a different way to regular learning.
Your brain needs to be kept fit and healthy just like any other muscle in your body.
Keeping your mind “fit” can help with so many things from performing your job to your best ability to remembering your grocery list or people’s names at parties!
So, to keep our minds fit, healthy and as creative as possible, Riddling is something we do on a daily basis at We Are Acuity!
Yes, that might sound strange but the ‘Morning Riddle’ was introduced into our daily morning meeting a year ago and over time we think we’ve become pretty good at them! In fact we’re running out of Riddles to do!
To really put our brains to the test we’ve booked in to The Crystal Maze LIVE Experience in London in a few weeks time where we hope our lateral thinking skills will stand us in great stead!
So, What has one head, one foot and four legs?
