They Enhance Your Verbal Skills ─ The mental task of putting words together in a crossword puzzle can also help your language skills. An Irish study looked at a group of university students who did one simple crossword puzzle per day for 4 weeks. They noticeably improved their verbal communication skills compared to those who did not do any puzzles.
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.
