Sitting down to solve a few brainteasers is never a bad idea. No matter how tired you are, your mind will always feel a little clearer afterward.
Brainteasers let the brain take a break and forget for a few minutes about all our responsibilities: chores, our job, school, and other things that keep our minds focused on the clutter in front of us, such is the life of an adult.
It is also terrific for the brain to exercise regularly, just as you should take a walk or go for a run every now and then to keep your body in shape.
