Meditation Jigsaw Puzzle
Jigsaw puzzles are hardly new. They’ve been around since the 1700s, and have evolved from hand-cut wooden educational tools to a huge industry targeting children and adults alike. They have certainly stood the test of time, providing education and hours of peaceful time passed. What studies are now showing is that these “toys” have lasting benefits both to our health and basic well-being.
Research is now purportedly showing the quantifiable benefits of carrying this activity into adulthood. Studies, like the notable MacArthur study, have shown that keeping the mind active with jigsaw puzzles and other mind-flexing activities can actually lead to a longer life expectancy, a better quality of life, and reduce our chances of developing certain types of mental illness, including memory loss, dementia, and even Alzheimer’s Disease (by an amazing third).

This puzzle is best played on a computer or a tablet. You can play it on a smart phone, but it can be temperamental. On a computer, simply use your mouse to click and move the pieces. On a tablet, smartphone, or touch-enabled screen, simply use your fingers to move the pieces! If your sound is on, you will hear a “click” when the pieces match and snap together. Enjoy!
