Sharpen Your Brain With Jigsaw Puzzles


Are you getting on in age?  Are you looking for a fun way to keep your brain sharp? Putting jigsaw puzzles together is a fun activity that will challenge you and help keep your brain young.
Our brains have two lobes - the left lobe thinks logically and follows sequences while the right brain is creative, intuitive and emotional. When you work on a jigsaw puzzle, you are using both lobes of your brain.
This intense work increases the brain cells' efficiency and capacity.  
The MacArthur Study has found that people who do jigsaw puzzles and crosswords and are active live longer and have fewer incidences of Alzheimer's, memory loss, dementia and other old age problems. 
Jigsaw puzzles are also a great family and rainy day activity. Puzzles are readily available for any age and interest. You can also glue them together and frame for a pretty wall treatment. 

You can find these and more jigsaw puzzles in my Addoway store:
