5 Reasons To Play Sudoku In Your Free Time
Are you looking for something fun to do in your free time? Perhaps you find yourself with more free time than you might usually have, and need something to engage you and keep your mind active? It is not healthy to simply do nothing, and for people of all ages, there are many different educational pastimes that can be enjoyed when there is time. One of the most popular is Sudoku.
You may have seen this challenging and also educational game of squares and numbers but have yet to try it. We recommend you do, but be warned – Sudoku is surprisingly addictive! Fortunately there are plenty of sudoku tips for beginners if you search online, and all you need is the puzzle itself, a pen or pencil (or your computer or phone if playing online), and a working brain! Here are some reasons why Sudoku is good for you!
Sudoku is Brain Food
If you like to keep your brain occupied, there’s nothing like Sudoku to give it a challenge! The combination of mathematical and logistical challenges means you really do give your little grey cells some exercise, and you can play wherever you are.
There may be many occasions when you are bored; you might be in hospital recovering from a procedure, or perhaps you live alone and want something to keep you occupied. Sudoku is great for both of these incidences and for many more where you have unavoidable time to kill!
Wake Up Call
Do you get up in the morning and have trouble getting yourself mentally prepared for work? Try a bit of a sudoku challenge on the way to work! On the train, at the bus stop, give your brain a wake-up call and get it into gear for the day – it works, and it’s fun too.
Better than Facebook
What do you spend your time doing in your free time? Many people get on Facebook – or other social media sites – and simply read what others have put. That’s not putting your time to the best possible use. Sudoku is a more creative and useful way of spending your time, and it’s not just a game: it helps with the way you think, too, which brings us on to the next point.
Problem Solving Skills
Sudoku requires the player to think in a particular way, and it’s not the way you normally think when faced with a challenge. That little set of squares needs to be approached from many different angles, and all at the same time. This way of approaching a challenge or problem can also be applied to challenges you face at work or in your daily life, as it requires analysis, logic and application to get it right.
Sudoku is not just a game, it’s exercise for the brain, it’s a way of keeping you alert and ready for what the day may throw at you, and it’s a logistical exercise in analysis and planning – and it’s also great fun! So PLAY NOW !
