Bet you didn't realize that when you read a mystery, your brain wakes up and begins to think. Just like exercising your body, your brain needs regular work-outs too.
Author and archeologist John Shimmin writes on the fascinating mysteries surrounding the Holy Grail in his two recent novels, Manx Grail Chronicles: The Templar Treasure, and (coming soon) The Mystery of the Pythagorean Scrolls.
One of the first points John makes about the brain is how it needs to be exercised, just like your body. Giving your mind mental gymnastics to puzzle over is one way to give it a work-out.
John shares his wisdom in this arena and offers tips including:
** Look for the mysteries in your everyday life
** problem-solve issues as a team
** look at objects from a different angle, i.e., draw a chair right-side-up and upside down; you will be amazed at the difference!
** Practice critical thinking
** Challenge your perception of the ordinary; you may discover something new!
