Back when we were kids, our job was to be curious, learn, and play as much as possible. Therefore, puzzles meant a fantastic way to spend several hours training and developing our minds.
Whatever the test or riddle we had to face, it would provide great satisfaction once we solved it.
And thanks to that, the brain felt quicker and sharper. It became easier to concentrate and absorb new information.
As an adult, you don’t have as much free time anymore, which is a shame. At the same time, however, I’m glad I don’t have to go to school anymore.
With that said, we must still exercise our brains regularly if we want to keep them healthy.
There are many ways to do this, and none is better or worse than the other. The important part is to submerge the brain into some brainteasing.
Plenty of puzzles around
Perhaps the most common challenges are crossword puzzles or sudoku, which have come with the morning newspaper for generations.
But if you look online, you will quickly find a significant amount of fun – and challenging – puzzles.
Just take the one below for an example.
Who is the mother of the child?
The puzzle below might not be reminiscent of the problems you solved when you were a kid, but nonetheless, it is still quite the challenge.
Below we can see a picture of two women sitting opposite each other. In the middle of them, a child is playing.
The challenge: to figure out who the mother of the kid is.
Can you figure it out? It’s not easy, but there is one detail that’ll reveal the correct answer.
If you can’t manage to come up with the solution, we’ll let you know down below.
This is the mother of the child
Okay, do you have your answer ready?
Below the next picture is the correct answer.
The correct answer is the woman on the right.
Why do we know then? Well, because the child playing in the middle is facing the woman on the right. It is a common natural response for children to face their mother whenever they are in the same room, regardless of the activity in progress.
Did you get it right? Congratulations to you then!
