Distract Yourself with Puzzles

Exeter Water Tower Jigsaw

Puzzles can be quite nurturing when we’re going through challenging times. These relaxing, challenging, solution-focused and inexpensive (or free) puzzles never lose their appeal. By focusing our minds on solving problems, and asking us to think outside the box, puzzles can paradoxically be the solution to enduring scary and uncertain times.
