Benefits of Brain Teasers and Puzzles

The benefits of brain teasers and puzzles are many and we certainly have them at our escape games in Edinburgh. Brain teasers and puzzles are good for your brain as well as your body, giving your mind a thorough workout!  If you have a fit mind that’s dexterous and constantly working then you’ll be healthier in the long-run.

Research shows it’s worth giving your mind a workout

There’s even been research done into this area and it’s been discovered that mental exercise using brain teasers or number/word games can boost your brain activity, reducing the risk of dementia, helping to reduce boredom and improve your concentration and even increase your memory power. 

Cognitive skills, temporal and frontal lobes

All of this simply by doing regular teasers and puzzles. Using cognitive skills you’ll be using a part of your brain that helps with learning, problem-solving, remembering things and learning. This requires the use of specific neuronal networks. Memory skills rely on the specific parts of the temporal and frontal lobes which is behind the forehead. People can often be mistaken for thinking that simply reading a book or working out their taxes will enough on its own to give your brain a little work out, but really, it’s not enough. You need to give your mind a real aerobic run around, and that way your brain will be fighting fit. 

Escape games that test your brain power

If you’re not too sure what escape games are all about then let us fill you in. The normal humdrum day-to-day stuff you go through in your job is something you need to escape from every now and again. We provide an escape route from all of that. What’s more we fill it with enough puzzles and cryptic clues to challenge that grey matter of yours, so that by the time you’ve finished, you’ll be properly worked out.

So what’s it all about?

You’re in a room, a locked room (which you can leave any time if you’re not enjoying it) and it’s usually themed. You pick your theme, enter and then you’ll have to solve a series of clues and puzzles, line them up and once you’ve got them all, work them all out so you can escape the room. Oh and did we say you have only 60 minutes in which to do it? 

Yup that’s right. If that’s not enough to get your brain cells working then we don’t know what is. Why don’t you get yourselves down to us here at Escape Edinburgh and book your room. You can hop on a call to do that, and once you’ve booked it just bring yourself and your friends and family down and you can get started. It’ll be the best hour’s fun you’ve had in some time.
