Surprisingly, our brains are the laziest things in the world, like a sloth in our bodies. When we force our brain to function, it doesn’t feel particularly enthusiastic and tries to fight in any way it can.
It is natural for our brain to strive to conserve energy, yet laziness leads to deterioration. We give our brain a “workout” by solving puzzles on a daily basis, sharpening our reasoning, critical thinking, and imagination.
Solving riddles and picture puzzles is a great way to give your brain the exercise it needs. Brain games like sudoku, chess, and scrabble can help improve your critical thinking skills, sharpen your memory, and boost your productivity in life.
