Doing jigsaw puzzles are not just fun but have been shown to be beneficial to mental powers, health and achieving longevity. The human mind has two separate hemispheres or lobes which are referred to as the right- and left-brain. Generally speaking, the right brain deals with emotional intelligence and with the bigger picture, whereas the left brain deals with more linear, logical processes. When both sides of the brain can be harnessed simultaneously you gain the greatest mental power. Much like the task itself, doing jigsaws helps you unite these two disparate but ultimately compatible pieces to be unified.

It was found that the task of working on jigsaw puzzles causes continuous activity in the brain that involves multiple parts of the brain, including across the two spheres. The intensity of the activity also helps to exercise the brain cells, thereby increasing their efficiency and capacity. Studies such as the MacArthur Study suggest that people who have been used to doing jigsaw puzzles and other similar puzzle activities were likely to live longer and were less likely to fall prey to Alzheimer’s disease and other memory loss.

Mindbogglers jigsaw puzzles in particular focus on both the mental challenge of the puzzle, the physical ease of the puzzle coming (and staying) together, and the right-brain satisfaction of the stunning artistic finish.
