Today’s Challenge: How many squares can you spot?

It is a fact that our brain needs regular exercise just like the rest of the body. At least if you want to live a long and happy life.

Brainteasers are a great way to boost your mind’s activity. Thanks to the internet, you can quickly find new puzzles to help you get a proper mental workout.

In addition, the sense of accomplishment you get once you manage to solve a puzzle is hard to beat!

Back when we were kids and went to school, we spent most of our day solving challenges of all kinds. After all, our job was to exercise, learn and explore.

It’s hard to remember everything

But now that we are adults, it is not that easy. Several of our skills have gotten rusty over the years, and it’s hard to remember everything we learned back then.

Therefore, it is vital to refresh that knowledge when we have the time – but how do we do that?

Well, for starters, try your hand at today’s challenge.
