You know the old cliché about how you are what you eat? Well, this is true for your jigsaw puzzles too.
Not only does it matter which puzzle pieces are in front of you, but also which ones have been there before – and not just because they’re all mixed up together.
The more you work on a puzzle, the higher it’ll be to put together. The more pieces are in front of you (the base), and the easier they feel to slip into place once there’s been some progress made elsewhere. This means that if you’re working with one part at a time for an extended amount of time, chances are slim your next piece will fit correctly where it belongs right away – not because it doesn’t match but because all those other pieces between don’t make sense anymore!
So how does this affect health? It might seem like we’re just talking about puzzles here, but really any complicated task has similar effects:
mental fatigue can lead to physical lethargy as well as poor judgement making bad decisions.
Both the brain and body need a break from time to time. If we don’t take some down-time, even for just fifteen minutes each day, we’re more likely to experience mental fatigue or make poor decisions that can lead into physical lethargy – which is something no one wants!
Mental exhaustion may also cause us not to care about what’s around us anymore, like our health. So whether you choose puzzles or other activities: finding ways to relax every now and again will help relieve stress in the long run as well as keep your mind sharp!”
