This Sparked Me!

Work Sudoku or Crossword puzzles and our brain is unable to process mentally challenging activities and negative feelings at the same time! What a fun way to wipe out fears and worries! Even temporary respite helps break that negativity cycle, and gets us on a better track.

In current Woman's World issue.

    That is cool! I love crosswords and word search puzzles!

    Maybe that's why on days that I play Suduko on my Brain Age game I feel better and a lot less negative. I didn't know that your brain couldn't process puzzles and other thoughts at the same time.
