    How often should you challenge your mind by playing games or doing puzzles?

    Where does it go from being a benefit to being an idle waste of time?

    A very interesting question but I've no official answer. I would say maybe spending 10 minutes of time each day with a different puzzle (perhaps one different puzzle for each day of the week?) at the very least, and when it becomes a waste of time is when it's too easy and too time consuming with little to no reward in sight. I suppose it depends on the difficulty and repetitiveness of the brain-challenging puzzles you're doing, as well as everyone's personal preferences

      I like the idea of a different puzzle for each day of the week.  That sounds like it could work on developing different skills or areas of the brain.  Thank you for your answer.
