19 Top-Notch Jigsaw Puzzles You Can Buy Today
Country Living 2hrs ago
Let's face it: Everyone in the family has had their fill of screen time. It's time to put up the cellphones, turn off the video game consoles, and clear off the kitchen table because jigsaw puzzles are back in a big way! By this point, you've probably made your way through the best classic kids movies and best board games for kids and even made and played some outdoor games. These puzzles will help fill those "I'm bored!" hours of the day. Keep in mind that puzzles, like all board games, have a recommended age range. In general, the more pieces, the harder the puzzle. A 1,000-piece puzzle should take several days to complete, and the youngest members of your family might find them a bit too hard.Not only are puzzles proven to sharpen fine-motor skills, improve memory function, and reduce stress, but a recent Yale University study showed that jigsaw puzzles can even help build teamwork and cooperation (can they keep the kids from arguing? It's worth a try!). These jigsaw puzzles are challenging enough that they perfect for adults, too. So tell Netflix, "No, I'm not still watching!" and give these a try.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
