Puzzles for mindfulness

Restful puzzles and brain-training activities can help relieve stress and inspire creativity.  Feel the tension release as you focus on each achievable and fun task you will experience the endorphin reward buzz as you successfully complete each puzzle.

Puzzles for mindfulness

These games were specially selected by Dr Gareth Moore to provide the perfect level of challenge and reward for your brain, and to provide a balanced level of challenge, meaning that you should be able to make good progress on virtually all of the puzzles.


Stimulating your mind with each puzzle also helps unlock your brain’s innate creativity, just as sleep and rest can help you reach a breakthrough on pending tasks. This will help you feel refreshed and renewed, and ready to carry on with your daily life.


Each puzzle should be solvable within a short break, so you don’t need to set aside a lot of time to enjoy this activity. Just print out one of the puzzles below when you fancy a few minutes of mindful relaxation.
