Day 20 / 100: Thinking Outside the Box – Brain Teasers #the100dayproject #100daysOfBrainPower
As we develop and strengthen our muscles in our bodies by doing physical exercises, we can keep our mind sharp and energetic by doing brain exercises. The number of synapses which provide the communication between billions of brain cells in the human brain is directly proportional to our mental capacity, particularly, our brain power.
Brainteasers can help you improve your concentration and logical thinking. As well, many find brainteasers work to relieve stress. Some brainteasers are easy, some are a little harder and some can really make you ponder for a while and others can make you groan as they can be cheesy. 😜
Often, when you finally hear the answer, you feel ignorant or silly because it should have been obvious to you. However, brainteasers are enjoyable! Therefore, we keep testing ourselves and hoping we get better at solving them.
Try out the below brain teasers to relax and have some fun. But try not to take a sneak peek on Google to find the answers. Post your answers in the comments. Let’s see how many of you get them right!
1. You are in a cabin and it is pitch black. You have one match on you. Which do you light first, the newspaper, the lamp, the candle, or the fire? 2. When you have me, you immediately feel like sharing me. But, if you do share me, you do not have me. 3. Guess the next three letters in the series GTNTL. 4. I am the beginning of sorrow and the end of sickness. You cannot express happiness without me yet I am in the midst of crosses. I am always in risk yet never in danger. You may find me in the sun, but I am never out of darkness. 5. A man wanted to encrypt his password but he needed to do it in a way so that he could remember it. He had to use seven characters consisting of letters and numbers only (no symbols like ! or <). In order to remember it, he wrote down “You force heaven to be empty.” What is his password? 6.
