The Benefits of Brain Teasers and Puzzles

We’re talking about the benefits of brain teasers and puzzles, and we know there’s been a lot of talk about how good they are for your brain. They are, but we think they really benefit anyone really who wants to stay mentally active and stay social. Sometimes life can be hard, and we can often find ourselves feeling isolated and alone, but with our escape rooms here’s a game that helps you on two levels.

Bringing People Together

In order to play you have to have at least 2 people and no more than 6, this is good because it helps you to interact with others, to stay in touch with those you haven’t seen in a while, and help break the day up if you don’t see many people the rest of the time. If for instance you’re self-employed, you may not get much opportunity to talk during the course of a day, Escape Rooms gives you a chance to interact with friends and family – and offers a refreshing change from your own company.

Keep the Mind Active

Helping to get that adrenaline going, endorphins pumping and all in all, helping you to have some healthy neural activity. Sometimes, when we don’t use our analytical, problem-solving skills and logical thinking, our brains can get a little sluggish, but by taking part in brain teasers and puzzles regularly we can help sharpen our mental skills and stay mentally alert. If you’re looking for a new job, hoping to try out a new course and you feel out of it, then by spending time in a game like ours, it may not only help to improve your logical and analytical skills, but also improve your self-confidence.

Doing Puzzles at Home

Puzzles you can do at home are great as they are another way of staying busy and helping to keep our minds sharp. However, by actually leaving your home and coming to an escape room challenge, you’re socialising, getting out and about and interacting with friends and family. Confidence is important whether in work or leisure, and by taking part in a game, if only for an hour out of your day, is going to help build your confidence back up. 

Escape Games are For Everyone

Escape games aren’t just for the self-assured and confident, or for the successful and career savvy strategist, our games are for everyone.  And they provide a way of socialising, interacting and keeping minds sharp, regardless of age or status. The escape games phenomena has democratised gaming and made it an equal playing field where everyone can take part. 

You don’t have to be a computer whizz or a virtual reality expert, all you have to be is an enthusiastic game player, someone who loves testing their mind and their skills. If you enjoy playing a game that’s played against the clock, then this is the best one by far, that’s played away from the home or office, with other people - and one that actually requires people to talk to each other!
