National Puzzle Day

National Puzzle Day

National Puzzle Day

 

Exercise your problem brain with a puzzle. January 29th is National Puzzle Day.

Whether it’s a crossword, jigsaw, word searches, brain teasers, Soduku or solving a mystery, puzzles put our minds to work.

Studies have found that when we work on a puzzle, we use both sides of the brain, and spending time daily working on puzzles improves memory, cognitive function and problem-solving skills.

The bottom line is, puzzles stimulate the brain, keeping it active and practicing its skills.

HISTORY

Started in 2002 by Jodi Jill, National Puzzle Day was created as a way to share her enjoyment of puzzles.  As a syndicated newspaper puzzle maker and professional quiz maker, Jodi Jill developed classroom lesson plans especially for National Puzzle Day and the popularity has grown year after year.

HOW TO OBSERVE

Spend time putting together a jigsaw puzzle with a friend, or grab a cup of coffee and complete a Sudoku or crossword puzzle.   Use #NationalPuzzleDay to post on social media.
