I was just reading on the benefits of jigsaw puzzles for the elderly, and accordingly, jigsaw puzzles provide a good mental workout. It stimulates the brain to build and renew connections. On the emotional level, completing a puzzle creates a sense of accomplishment.

This is very interesting, I love doing jigsaw puzzles and always have since I was young. You really do feel a huge sense of accomplishment once you finish because some can be really tricky.

This makes a lot of sense Lynda. Jigsaw puzzles help to keep the mind sharp and thinking about which piece goes where. The sense of accomplishment is also good for those whose mind has started to wander. Thanks for sharing this!

No wonder that some senior homes have included jigsaw puzzles in their series of activities for the residents. It does provide a good mental stimulation, keeping the brain active.

I used to do jigsaw puzzles a lot. Funny how I never made that "connection". It makes sense though if you think about it. Well, time to go out buy one now I guess.
