Today’s Challenge: Which car has to move first to solve this traffic jam?

Running, jogging, cycling, and walking are important for the body to stay fit and healthy, especially if you are no longer that young.

But what many people forget is that we also have to take care of our most important muscle, namely the brain, which also needs regular exercise.

Lazing around on the couch during our free time might be tempting. After all, there is always a new show on Netflix, Hulu, or Disney+ to watch. However, if you want to have a fresh mind when the week starts, solving a few puzzles could be the difference between a good and a bad one.

That is why today, I brought you a good ‘ol brainteaser!

There is nothing quite like solving brainteasers. Puzzles give our brain cells some healthy stimulation. Afterward, you’ll feel fresh in the head and hopefully be in a better mood.

Therefore, time to face today’s challenge. It is, in my opinion, neither too easy nor too difficult. You have to think for a while but I know you’ll find the correct answer eventually.
