Piece Together the Mysteries of the Universe With These Outer Space Puzzles

The perfect pastime for when you or the kids need a little space.

Sarah Burns


There comes a point when you’re working on a puzzle, where you start to really get in the zone: You’re so zeroed in on the shapes, patterns, and pieces that the rest of the world starts to fade into the background. Puzzles literally help us “space out!” Spacing out with a low-impact activity like putting together a puzzle is a healthy way to help us relax and encourages the increase of mood stabilizing chemicals in our brains. In the long run, doing puzzles can actually help us become happier, healthier, more focused Earthlings!
