Here a few benefits of having fun with riddles

Riddles develop a person’s logical and critical thinking skills, making them more attuned to thinking outside the box in difficult real-life situations. People who practice riddles a lot are usually good decision makers and problem solvers. Solving riddles has been shown to improve the comprehension skills of young children, which will, in turn, improve their academic performance [1].

Riddles are supposed to be as fun as they are challenging. The anticipation and true curiosity you feel when trying to solve a riddle or answer trivia could help prompt our brains to secrete dopamine (the happy hormone) helping to pep up our mood and even help with memory [2]. Having a cranky day? Maybe a riddle will help perk you up.

Studies have shown that exercising the brain can reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer’s as a person ages. It may not be a sure fire way to prevent it, but it has been shown to reduce or delay symptoms and keep the brain working better longer [3].
