Crossword WriterJoselyn, Heywise Staff

Joselyn wasn’t too keen on multiple choice in high school. She vividly remembers the first biology exam she passed by only the skin of her teeth, which dragged her overall average down into the embarrassingly low 90s (she doesn’t want to talk about it). After swearing off any high school or university courses that required multiple choice tests, Joselyn managed to get an English degree by sweet-talking her professors into offering only essay-style exams. Needless to say, this did not exactly endear her to her peers. This rocky start smoothed out in time, though, and after tumbling down a black quiz hole one day while putting off job hunting, Joselyn realized her hatred of all things a-b-or-c had faded and she actually enjoyed dreaming up new ideas for questions and dangerously correct-sounding answers. You won’t find her quizzes an easy ride, but Joselyn just wants to make sure you’re really testing your knowledge.

Crosswords are fuel for your brain!

Crossword puzzles are a great way to boost your mental agility while still having fun. Most people have heard the idea that puzzles are good for their brains, but few individuals know the specifics. If you've been forgetting things a bit more often lately, consider regularly exercising your memory centers with a crossword puzzle. By constantly trying to remember words and reason through different definitions, you are actively improving your memory recall. Keeping your brain active also helps fight serious diseases like Alzheimer's and dementia. Though crossword puzzles might not be able to cure these issues, they do slow their onset and even limit some of their symptoms. Additionally, studies have proven that mindfulness — being present in the moment without focusing on external thoughts — helps boost your mood, self-control, and social skills. Solving a crossword is basically a form of meditation and will allow you to practice mindfulness.
