An escape room is a room that contains games whereby people solve puzzles so as to enable them to leave. An escape room is a great way of encouraging team work among your friends, in your company or in your family. People are locked in an escape room for some time, usually one hour, within which they are required to solve puzzles. There are a lot of benefits that people acquire from escape rooms.
Escape rooms provide the best exercise for your brain. It is proven that solving puzzles spikes the level of dopamine in the brain. An increase in dopamine means there is improved concentration, improved memory, heightened social skills and an improve in one’s mood. Your learning skills will increase with increase in dopamine levels.The brain tends to want more dopamine and so it motivates you to find more puzzles.
Research has shown that people who are often in escape rooms are able to communicate much better than people who have never visited an escape room.So as to be freed from an escape room, one has to be in a position to communicate properly with the rest of the team. You also have to learn to listen to other people since the more you work together, the faster you escape. Skills learnt in an escape room are also used outside the escape room and therefore people are able to communicate better.
Escape rooms are also beneficial for the corporate world because they are used in team building. In order to escape, every member of the team must do whatever is required of him/her and therefore your members will have to work together. This will ultimately translate to better relations at work which will boost productivity.
Escape rooms also enable people to develop better problem solving skills. People find themselves thinking critically before making decisions. These skills will have an impact on how you handle the challenges you face in your day to day life. In order to solve puzzles, one has to pay attention to every single detail. Looking into detail allows one to be much more focussed even as they carry out their daily activities which ultimately leads to better decisions being made.
Another advantage of escape rooms is that one is able to acquire time management skills. You have to learn how to use your time wisely because most escape rooms give people just one hour in each room. A person is able to avoid all that is not necessary in their day to day activities so as to manage time appropriately. People who complete escape rooms more often have positive changes in their moods. You not only get to learn new skills, you also get to have fun in escape rooms.
