Brain Benders can be such fun
Left and right sides one-on-one
Work each puzzle 'til you've won
Begin again when all are done
Brain Benders are a unique type of Brain Aerobic Exercise. They are sometimes described as whole-brain puzzles. With the left hemisphere (for most people) you are recognizing and processing signs (letters) that represent meaning in the English language. With the right hemisphere, you are recognizing and processing spatial positioning (size of letters in relation to other letters, position in the little puzzle box).
There are no right or wrong answers to these Brain Benders—only the answers my brain thought of. Yours may think of different solutions.
Remember, brain puzzles are only helpful if you actually stimulate your brain by working them. Try to brainstorm at least one solution and more if possible. Jot down your brain’s solutions before you review mine. Feel free to send me your solutions when they differ from mine. You are welcome to send me additional puzzles, too, and I'll be glad to consider adding them to the ever-expanding list on my website.
