January 29th National Puzzle Day

Puzzles can be fun. Whether they are literally the jigsaw puzzle, crossword puzzle, math puzzles or whatever, they pass time when we are board, sharpen our wit and probably help with the reduction of Alzheimer’s and dementia. Of course some can be confusing as well but if they are just keep search until you find some sort of puzzle you enjoy. Most puzzles can be done alone, or with a friend, or even with a group of friends. Keep your brain active, challenge it daily.

January 29th National Puzzle Day

Puzzle are apart of our everyday life. Some are simple to solve, others more difficult. making lunch is a puzzle if you haven’t got any idea what to make. of course there are math puzzles and word puzzles but probably the most popular is the Jigsaw Puzzle. I remember spending hours working on puzzles as a kid. It was always more fun to do it with friends or family, actually it was probably more fun spending time with them than doing the puzzle. I do wish I had saved some of those puzzles now as pleasant memories spent with good people.

How to celebrate – Get together with the family and put a puzzle together. Think about all the puzzles in life. Do a family puzzle.

January 29th International Puzzle Day

January 29th International Puzzle Day

Today was created back in 1995 but puzzles have been with us, on record, since 1760 when Britain’s John Spilsbury created a map he cut into pieces and then allowed others to put back together again. Puzzles can be fun and helpful on rainy days when children can find nothing else to do (and adults in some cases). Over the years, puzzles have become more complex and some are really difficult to put together. It can either be challenging, or frustrating, but there is a reward when you finish it and all of us are proud of what we have accomplished.

How to celebrate – Spend the evening putting a puzzle together with your family. Using a protective covering, create a floor or wall made out of puzzles. Find that one piece of the puzzle that we all seem to lose.
