Who doesn't like cats? Or puzzles? Well, you could be saying lots of people, but when you combine the two, the result can be quite fetching. Visual puzzles are fun to do and they help pass the time during this lockdown period when we are stuck at home. If you have run out of recipes to make and are just done baking your 50th batch of bread, take a rest from creating something. Instead, indulge in this puzzle and help your mind focus on what is present right in front. Most of us have been worrying over and over about our health and safety, and while we are doing the best we can, like keeping our masks on, it can feel like it's not enough.
So, here is a puzzle for you to search for the birds in the midst of the cats. There are many perks to doing puzzles, like improving memory, better problem-solving skills, improved visual-spatial reasoning, increased IQ, delayed dementia and Alzheimer’s, and a lot more, according to USAToday. There are no direct studies linking the two diseases mentioned with puzzles but there are studies that have proven that brain exercises aka keeping your mind active help in reducing the decline in thinking skills, according to Dementia.org.au.
