When I was teaching art and music in the early childhood classroom, there was a phrase that was used frequently by the classroom teachers… “kiss-your-brain”. Lately, I have found a thinker-toy that allows me to organize, focus and challenge my mind…
Almost every night, I see how many of these puzzles I can conquer. Even though I end up procrastinating on tasks that need to be accomplished, watch less HGTV and get fewer zzz’s, I figure it isn’t the worse use of my time!
SIDE NOTE: For this non-number-girl, there are some serious “kiss my brain” moments!
To justify my newfound hobby, I was wondering if there are benefits from “playing” these puzzles? I found many reasons Sudoku puzzles help sharpen the brain, but I thought I’d share these six LifeHack reasons that Sudoku sharpens the brain:
- Improves your memory
- Stimulates your mind
- Reduces the chances of developing Alzheimers
- Learns to do things quickly
- Increases your concentration power
- Feel happy
What are some ways that you use to sharpen your brain, personally or professionally? Share with me!
