What is Positively Puzzling?
Positively Puzzling celebrates all the wonderful plusses about jigsaws.
From fun family times together to long term health benefits and day-to-day mindful moments, there are so many positives about the humble puzzle! Being MINDFUL means you are IN the present moment and you connect and root yourself into the experience of that moment by clearing your mind of all other distractions. Modern life can be a little fast or overwhelming sometimes, so by slowing down and finding peace in the moment that you are in, can be very soothing and comforting, and act as a "battery recharge" to take the world on again.
Doing a jigsaw puzzle can create such a mindful moment. When you are completing a puzzle, your mind is fully immersed in the experience and therefor, IN THE MOMENT. It allows your mind to drift away into the world you are puzzling, enables you to feel a sense of peace and eventually a sense of satisfaction and gratitude when you complete the puzzle. By focussing on the detail of the puzzle pieces, the colours, the shapes and where they might fit together, you become utterly absorbed in your present moment. This sense of calm and "me-time' can have very positive effects on your outlook on life's challenges.
When it comes to choosing the right puzzle for you we recommend you start with a picture you love, and choose a piece count you feel comfortable with. Although some puzzlers really love a challenge, it must always be fun and enjoyable. Happy Puzzling!
