Summary
Puzzles are important to keep our brains active.

In January, many of us are still clinging on to good intentions and keeping up our New Year resolutions, which might mean doing some physical exercise.

That's great, but it's also important not to ignore our mental fitness and keep our brain active. It doesn't matter if it's a jigsaw puzzle, a Rubik's cube or a crossword puzzle, but any type of activity that stimulates the mind is worth it.

National Puzzle Day was started in 2018 by Jodi Jill, a syndicated puzzle columnist.

Puzzle fun facts:

A mathematician from Switzerland created the first version of Sudoku in the 18th century called Latin Squares. Latin Squares was first published in a French newspaper in 1895.

Howard Garns from Connersville, Indiana created the version of Sudoku we have now in 1979

A British cartographer and engraver, John Spilsbury, invented the jigsaw puzzle in 1767 when he glued a world map to a piece of wood and cut out each country individually.
