They Make a Great Social Activity ─ Crossword puzzles don't always have to be a solitary pursuit. Consider doing one with a family member or a group of friends. Research has shown that working in a team can improve your speed of thinking and talking. You can also strengthen your collaboration and dispute resolution skills. Doing crosswords with others can be a great way to bond and share experiences. As an added bonus, everyone will get the same health benefits while creating happy memories together.
On occasion, the puzzle author may use some little tricks, like using numbers or symbols to complete parts of words or phrases. Solving a puzzle like this will require a little creativity on your part. For instance, a puzzle may have the word "arrow" in each theme related clue, and that may indicate a need to put an actual arrow where these clues intersect. Sometimes, you may have to replace a word with a number.
