Hutton business innovating to support mental health of UK adults.

In recent years, due to the COVID pandemic and “the new normal” many people have suffered with their mental health. Whilst the pandemic may have contributed to raising awareness, the true extent of this is still unknown.

We all know the tragic and devastating affect the pandemic had on our care homes. One area in particular where people suffered was through self-isolation, leading to loneliness. This is especially noticeable among care-home residents, many of whom may already suffering with their mental health.

Throughout all this, one item that has grown in popularity – the humble Jigsaw Puzzle – may hold the key to prolonging and maintaining good mental health.

We can all appreciate the fond childhood memories of completing jigsaw puzzles, often whilst on a family holiday or school break, many of us grow up to overlook the benefits of jigsaw puzzles. In particular there have been several reports recently of the hidden benefits of completing jigsaw puzzles on the mental health of people of all ages.

Recent studies have proven that the use of Jigsaw puzzles in later years helps with older people’s mental health. With the focus of the brain on the task being attributed to being a major factor by this research. 

When we sit down with friends and family to complete a jigsaw puzzle, we are actually working as a team to solve what would seem at first to be an impossible task. As we work on solving our own section of the puzzle we are being mentally stimulated whilst simultaneously bonding with one another. This sense of achieving a common goal is without doubt a hugely positive thing.

During the pandemic, many senior citizens and those forced to work from home in isolation, found that jigsaw puzzles helped them through it. This is because, even when undertaken alone, completing a puzzle has purpose. 

Firstly, your challenge is clearly laid out in front of you. Secondly you have a simple objective and finally, each piece, once placed, is a step closer to completing the challenge. The sense of achievement, once complete, is a great stimulus for our minds – especially in a world full of uncertainty. This is the same principle as making a list of tasks. As we cross off each one, we feel good about it. 

It was during the pandemic that Brentwood printing company, getitprinted.com decided to launch JigBox. With a simple product range consisting of jigsaws of multiple piece denominations, the company added something different to help turn their puzzles into fantastic gifts – personalisation.

“Whilst we had seen huge demand for jigsaw puzzles during lockdown, it was our personalised puzzles that were flying out.” George, lead designer at getitprinted.com told us. “Customers were sending jigsaws to friends and relatives with family photos, memories, and personalised messages on them.” 

This lead the company to come up with an innovative product “We were aware that a lot of customers were ordering these as gifts as we can print and deliver within days, rather than weeks.” It was from this that the company decided to offer a subscription service, whereby customers can take out a subscription and upload a different photo memory each month for their puzzles. They can even be sent to friends and family directly.

The service simply called “JigBox” is actively helping people to reduce anguish whilst offering mental stimulation. Coupled with the fact that customers can chose a monthly family memory, this is a great way to help any one who may need a little extra mental support – even if you can’t be there in person.

To find out more about this and join the jigsaw revolution head to jigbox.co.uk or call in to meet the team in Hutton. They’ll be happy to show you the puzzles and talk you through how it works.
