Take a Break: Can You Beat Our Brainteasers in Record Time?

Working days can often fly by in a flash and it can be all too easy to sit at your desk and keep your head buried in your work without coming up for a breather. In fact, our recent study found that 12% of people don’t take any breaks during a working day.

Taking a break is an important way to clear your head and give your eyes something different to focus on, which is why we’ve put together these take a break brainteaser puzzles, designed to challenge your mind and get you away from the grind for a few moments as you try to solve them. What’s more, we’ve worked out the average and best times to complete each puzzle and are challenging you to try and beat our scores!
