Creating your own Brain Teasers

Creating your own brain teasers is a rewarding experience. Not only can you explore your creative mind, you can use the mind to create puzzles you can enjoy. You can sit and laugh over the puzzles you create, which laughter promotes youth. Still, the rewards reach above laughter and youth. You will also reach the benefits of enjoying an active mind. Having an active mind will keep you ahead of life’s, up, and down games.

Puzzles are fun, yet when you create your own, you have your own fingerprints in writing that you can share with your children, friends, family, and other people. In time, you may publish your own mind puzzle book by creating your own brain teasers often.

To create your own brain teasers, you can start with names, places, words, numbers, etc.
Let’s try it together.

Word puzzles:

Start building a block of words that comes to your mind. Write each word on paper.
Example: penny – letter – romance – center – solution – mystery
Now, we can write a list of associating words:
Fiscal – weak – alphabet – inspired – piece – discovery – trivia – undiscovered – state of mind

Next, review your first word list. Find the word that associates with the first word in your list. Penny – think for a few minutes about what penny means to you. We could go with fiscal, since it involves money, or we could choose weak. Weak is an option, since a penny amounts to nothing these days. On the other hand, if you apply the rule – "A penny saved is a penny earned," you might associate the penny with fiscal. Next, consider letter. Letter could associate with writer or alphabet. It doesn’t matter what you choose in this instance, yet you can elevate writing letters verses alphabets and probably draw your own conclusion.

Now think of romance. Romance, when you consider variant sides, romance could associate with undiscovered – mystery – inspired – state of mind, etc. In this case, we will associate romance with inspired, since to feel romance, you must feel inspired to guide you to that state of mind. Now think about how romance can associate with mystery and undiscovered. Draw your own conclusions. My conclusion is that you have to explore your inner self, which is a mystery often to most of us to find our skills in romance.

Center is something to discover, since you have the center of the universe to consider, middle areas, and centerpieces that go on a table – thus center associates with pieces.

Solution is something we discover. Solution is obvious in this instance, since we must discover answers to our problems. Discovery – Solution are emulsions, which we use mixtures of answers with key points to discover ways of solving our problems.


Mystery is something we have to discover also. Mystery is secrecy, or trivia. Mystery is undiscovered, since we must explore the secrecy to find solutions to the thriller or unidentified answers. Mystery is also inspired, since when we have mystery we often feel inspired to explore the foundation to find answers. The hidden messages beneath the surface often inspire one to explore the possibilities by offering suggestions.

This is what brain teasers are – mysteries we must discover answers to solve the problem. Mystery then, is something undiscovered. Yet, what does mystery mean to you?

Mind puzzles include various styles of word puzzles. You also have choices of lateral puzzles, block puzzles, wooden puzzles, etc, as well as other types of brain teasers.

To save money however, you can practice creating your own brain teasers so that you can open your mind up deeper than you would relying on someone else doing the work for you.
