The more vigorous and diverse your mental life, the more you will stimulate the growth of new neurons and new connections between them. Different cognitive challenges exercise different components of the brain. Much in the same way as no single exercise machine will make you physically fit, instead you need a balanced and diverse workout.
So here are a few logic and creative puzzles for you today…. to keep your Brain ticking over….
1) Alternate Universe
Mr. Bee Zarro claims to come from a parallel universe where afternoon comes before noon, tomorrow comes before yesterday, and later comes before now. But you don’t need to go to a parallel universe to see the same things happen. Where can you see this here on Earth?
2) All Together Now
What letter completes this group of 4? J, P, G, ?
3) Take 30
Alf was the 93rd caller to a radio-station and was told he would win a car if he could go into a room and come out exactly 30 minutes later. The room had no clock, and Alf was not allowed to wear a watch or bring in anything else that tells time. The only thing he could take into the room was a lighter and a candle in a candle holder (supplied by the radio station) that was guaranteed to burn completely in exactly one hour. Alf was not allowed to use a ruler to measure exactly halfway down the candle. Alf went into the room and emerged exactly 30 minutes later to win the car. How did he do it?
Need a hint?? Think creatively, don’t get bogged down in assumptions, question them … or if you’re really stuck… ask me!
