Minds are like parachutes – they only function when open.

brain pleaser puzzle

As we get older the more things we can do to keep our minds sharp and our brain synapses working properly, the better off we will be.  Working with puzzles is one way to keep your brain healthy.  Recent medical studies have proved that spending time on the Internet is more beneficial to the elderly than reading a book or doing other brain pleaser (sometimes called brain teasers) activities.  Learn more about the new studies in our Seniors Gain Health Benefits from Surfing the Net article.

Here’s an online brain pleaser puzzle that’s fun to do.  All you have to do is put the digital puzzle back together to view the picture of the skydiver.  (The puzzle shows a different image than the picture shown above and the skydiver constantly moves around the screen .) As you move each puzzle piece into the proper place you will hear an audible sound, so don’t be alarmed.  You can move pieces of the puzzle out of the way to clear the playing field.

You might want to set a timer and record how long it takes you to complete the puzzle. Then you can enter your name/city/state, your completion time and the current date in the comments section.

Example: Mary Jones – Novato, CA – 3 mintues-48 seconds – June 1, 2013.

Lets see who holds the fastest completion record,  for the longest period of time.  Have fun with it!
