It is always good to take a break from the challenging things that you do on a daily basis and look at something entertaining on the internet because our brains need a break every once in a while!
One great way to take a break but not go completely brain dead while on the web is to do those interesting web puzzles that you come across that really make you think about what you are doing, and require some extra thought than compared to just browsing and shopping.
This puzzle will probably get you very frustrated but has quite a simple answer.
Take a look at this block of text, and see if you can find your name in here:
If you can’t, don’t worry because most people typically get tricked up when they start looking for their name and realize that you need to actually look for “your name” within the block of text.
Take another look and see if you can find your name now. You should be able to spot it three times.
If you give up and simply cannot locate your name, here are the three instances of your name underlines. The trickiest one is at the top because it is backward.
This type of puzzle is actually the type of puzzle that is most recommended by brain doctors for keeping mental health in tip top condition.
This is because when you do these puzzles, your brain is not rapidly multitasking, which really wears and tears on the frontal lobe in your head which puts us under a lot of stress, not only in our brains but in our bodies as well.
When we are under stress, our body emits a toxic hormone called cortisol into the memory sector of the brain. This means that when you multitask, you are slowly decreasing your memory capabilities!
That is why if you just take some time out of the day to stop your hectic work day, cut your constant connection with technology, and sit back and relax to do these puzzles, you will be at a better overall health if you do these puzzles over time repeatedly.
They help you relax, unwind, and prevent that nasty hormone from being released that makes us feel awful.
If you want more help keeping your brain in that tip top working order, here is another puzzle that you can do. This one is a bit more centered around for children, however, it still has the same effect on your head because it will help divert your attention from the rest of the bust things going on around you.
You should be able to find six hidden words. They are pretty well stuck in there too, except for the obvious one on the side of the boy who is sitting on the couch and reading.
Did you find all six?
