We all need relief from our current levels of stress, we need to find happiness, a smile, a feeling of accomplishment. Puzzles are one way to accomplish all of these needs. Read what the experts say;
Do puzzles really make people happy?
It certainly does! Assembling a jigsaw puzzle is hugely satisfying and can truly bring happiness. The self-proclaimed puzzle king Peter Schubert tells us: “Bringing order to a pile of chaos can have an incredibly calming and relaxing effect.”
What is most fascinating is spending quality time on your own, whilst allowing your mind to drift away to another place or another world, all while searching, finding, assembling and ultimately seeing the puzzle scene come together.
What do researchers say?
Puzzle fans are not the only ones saying that doing puzzles makes you happy. It has been scientifically proven that doing jigsaw puzzles is sure to lift your spirits – in more ways than one, as Dr. Stephan Lermer (Communication Psychologist) has discovered: “Firstly, surprising sub-goals are achieved when doing a puzzle.”
“Secondly,” adds Lermer, “there is also the overall result, which symbolizes ‘I did it!’ that can be displayed and brings admiration and recognition. I like to differentiate between arrogant and healthy pride – people who do puzzles can be proud of themselves in a healthy way.”
