Escape Room Health Benefits
Improve Communication and Social Skills
Escape rooms encourage you to work together with the others in the room, which means communication is key! Escape rooms are popular team-building activities, as they put you in situations where you need to learn how to communicate and work together to solve the problem and escape.
Boost Your Mood
Completing challenges and solving puzzles causes small releases of the hormones that make you feel good, which in turn helps you to feel more energized and less fatigued. Since escape rooms are quite possibly one of the most complex challenges you’ll ever solve, they’re a great way to boost your mood.
Develop Time-Management Skills
In any escape room, you are given a limited amount of time to complete the challenge. Typically, each room consists of multiple puzzles that you must solve in order to beat the primary challenge — escaping from the room. Spending too much time on a puzzle could be your downfall, so you really have to manage your time properly.
Engage in Fun Physical Activity
The American Heart Association (AHA) recommends that every person get at least 30 minutes of moderate to intense physical activity per day. Escape rooms are a great and fun way to help yourself meet this goal. Believe it or not, you’ll likely be moving quickly all over the room in an effort to locate clues and solve puzzles. When you join friends or family in an escape room, you’ll get the health benefits that come from being active as well as the fun of this unique experience. Remember that physical activity includes a number of benefits, including the ability to lower:
- Blood pressure
- Risk of heart attack/stroke
Increase Your Attention to Detail
Often, the key to solving many of the puzzles in an escape room is hidden in the details. This means that you’ll naturally be increasing your attention to detail while playing the game. While this is a great skill to have when participating in an escape room, attention to detail is also beneficial in your daily life. Why not build this skill in one of the most fun ways possible?
