Crossword-a-Day ~ Beneficial

Recently I joined a group for people who’ve found themselves in
the same predicament as I.
The group consists of mostly women and ‘yes’ there are a few
men, although in the minority at present.
One of the ladies, a retired registered nurse, has shared a few
excellent articles.
I enjoyed the read about the benefits of doing a crossword
puzzle per day versus utilizing those brain games on the PCs
or cellphones.
For fun and to see if what the article stated about when we
are unable to find the correct word from the clues, it’s possible
due to the subconscious working in the background while we’re
busy throughout the day, that upon return a few hours later or
next day the answers will come rather easy to us.
I chose a medium level book and this morn with breakfast I
started my first puzzle. Sad to admit I was unable to finish it.
Now usually I’d check the answer pages and place a few words
within to finish solving it; however, this morn I placed the
book down and intend to return tomorrow to see if time away
allows me to remember.
One more area of interest in regard to this 120-day process
is my beginning with puzzle #1 determined to follow thru
solving puzzles in consecutive numerical order.
I’m not allowing myself to partake in past pick and choose
behavior.
Self-discipline and organization both are on the agenda with
good reason.
Exercises to help improve one’s memory sounds 100 percent
beneficial to me.
