The Benefits of Brain Teasers and Puzzles

So, how important are brain teasers and puzzles? We know they are no longer associated with helping to keep dementia at bay, so are they of any benefit at all? We think they are and that they do have benefit for anyone wishing to keep their minds active - and that’s whether you’re younger or older. Also, if you’re alone, feeling isolated, taking part in games and puzzles that involve other people not only gets you out of the house, but also helps you to engage with other people. 

We believe that Escape Games do bring people together from all walks of life. Regardless of social status, age or where they come from, people come here celebrate milestones in their lives, each other and to get away from the stress of every day living. You could be self-employed and not see anyone from one day to the next, however, with Escape Games you have the perfect way to spend an hour with like-minded individuals, and it doesn’t take up too much time out of your day.

Keeping your mind active may not magically stave off dementia or Alzheimer’s, but what it can do is help keep your neurons active, get your endorphins pumping and help you to use your communication skills to best effect. You could be feeling sluggish after a period of illness or a lack of stimulation, perhaps you haven’t been out in a while. By getting out and taking part in a game like this, you’ll be using problem-solving skills, logical and analytical skills and by sharpening these types of skills you’ll be feeling the benefits of it and feel more alert.  

If you’ve had a period of unemployment and you’ve lost your confidence, then taking part in a game such as this could help restore it, helping you to see where your skills lie, and that you have had them in abundance all along. 

Puzzles you do at home are all very well, and so are those on a tablet, phone, desktop or laptop, but there’s nothing to beat interacting with other people. By getting outside to socialise you’ll be helping your mental health too, because interaction and avoiding isolation are key factors in keeping mental illness at bay. 

Escape Games aren’t just for the confident, employed and the young, for people who are so self-assured or career savvy. They’re also for the shy and the introverted, the lonely and the quiet ones who need to get out every now and again with like-minded individuals. 

You won’t need to be a computer expert or a tech genius to take part, here at our Escape Rooms, all you need are your wits about you, good communication skills and an ability to think on your feet. You have an hour in which to find some clues, work them out and then unlock the room. It’s great fun and no tech skills are required, so if you’re worried about that, then don’t. All are welcome here at Escape.
