According to some people, a photo is worth a thousand words.
That would explain why so many people clutter Instagram and Snapchat with selfies, and photos of their food and friends.
Maybe they’re just trying to sum up how nice their avocado toast is, or even how much they love their OOTD (outfit of the day).
Sometimes you will see a photo and it’s hard to believe that it’s even real. In an age of photoshop and editing, any photo captured on camera will always seem somewhat fake.
Even a casual photo taker will be able to tell you that a lot of effort goes into taking a good photo.
You’ve got to get the right lighting, the right moment. Everything has to be perfect to take the best photo.
But unfortunately, a lot of the subtle extras that make the photo what it is goes unnoticed.
Not a lot of people spend special attention to the lighting or the subtle changes in color that the photographer in question has made.
Because of this, things hidden in the background can often go unnoticed.
This can be a lack of pants revealed in a mirror behind them, a certain adult toy forgotten about and visible in the corner of the photo…
But it’s not just the photo taker who can forget about the things in the background, and not see them when inspecting the photo before uploading it online to share with their friends.
Sometimes the people looking at the photo will totally miss something in the photograph.
This creates an illusion of sorts, which often leaves people blind to that well-hidden object.
People only tend to spot these things when it’s been pointed out, or when they’re presented with the challenge of finding it.
At least then they know they need to be on the lookout for something.
We all know that feeling we get when a friend challenges us to ‘spot the cat’ in a photo.
After all, challenging ourselves is a good thing! It exercises our brain, which is a necessity when it comes to keeping our minds sharp!
It’s important to exercise our brain regularly in order to try and keep our brains healthy and active. This is important no matter how old you are.
You could be in your early twenties, but do you really want to have an old, unhealthy brain? No, I didn’t think so.
You can be as physically healthy as you want, but if your brain isn’t healthy then you’re essentially running a sports car with an old and ruined engine.
There are a few ways you can make sure your brain is staying fit and active.
You can do a number of puzzles which are designed to challenge you and exercise your brain on a daily basis.
Or you can exercise your brain with brain teasers and riddles.
But this can often be trickier than it looks, which is another reason why you should keep on top of brain exercises as you get older!
You could be in your early twenties, but do you really want to have an old, unhealthy brain?
No, I didn’t think so. I mean, who would want a sports car with a beat up engine? No one, that’s who!
Whenever you complete a challenge, you get hit with a sudden feeling of happiness.
Puzzles and challenges help assist our brains in the production of dopamine, which is a common neurotransmitter.
Our bodies release dopamine whenever we’ve discovered something or completed a challenge.
That’s why we experience a rush of excitement whenever we make a breakthrough.
The release and after effects of dopamine actually cause improved motoring skills, an increase in concentration power, optimism, confidence, and an improved memory.
I bet that news just makes you want to try and solve a puzzle, am I right?
Of course, I’m right!
Well, I want you to take a close look at this romantic selfie of a young couple in love.
In case you hadn’t already noticed, a lot of couples like to take romantic selfies.
But this specific selfie has gotten a lot of attention over the past few weeks.
While it’s not as cringe-worthy as ‘we’re a couple’ photos or photos of a newly engaged couple, it’s still causing quite the stir online, and not for the reasons you’d expect!
