5 Fun Ways to Improve Your Critical Thinking Skills - Finnegan Pierson - Blog

5 Fun Ways to Improve Your Critical Thinking Skills

Critical thinking is an important skill that can help you to make better decisions, become more creative and improve your interpersonal relationships. The good news is that critical thinking can be honed and improved over time. Here are five fun ways that you can improve this crucial skill.


  1. Puzzles

Completing puzzles is a great option for those wishing to strengthen their critical thinking skills. While jigsaw puzzles may be the first place your mind goes, there are many other types of puzzles to choose from, including crosswords, Sudoku or KenKen. In today's digital age, you can play most of these puzzles on your phone, making them a convenient option if you have a few extra minutes on line at the grocery store. Not only do puzzles sharpen your critical thinking, but they can also improve short-term memory and visual-spatial reasoning. In addition, completing puzzles is perfect for those who want to unplug from technology and have some alone time amidst the mayhem of everyday life.


  1. Escape Rooms

Although relatively new, escape rooms have seen a sharp increase in popularity. If you've never heard of them, escape rooms are real-life adventure games where your goal is to solve a series of clues in order to "escape" the room in the allotted time. Not only are escape rooms enjoyable, but they also give your brain quite the workout. Critical thinking is essential to beating an escape room, and you'll find that you can strengthen this skill the more escape rooms you complete. If going to a physical escape room seems like too much of a hassle, you can play a virtual escape room from the comfort of your home. All you need is a  laptop and a few friends, and you'll be ready to go.


  1. Board Games

Similar to puzzles, board games are a fun and effective way to improve your critical thinking skills. Games like checkers and chess require you to predict your opponent's next moves and use reasoning to determine your next action. You'll also need to recognize patterns, solve problems and think strategically, all of which hone your critical thinking skills. In addition to improving critical thinking, playing board games can also teach patience, reduce stress, allow you to spend time with friends or even meet new people.


  1. Writing

Whether you choose to write in a journal, start your own blog or pen a short story, writing is a great way to strengthen your critical thinking skills. Although you can learn about the different aspects of writing, such as research, planning, grammar and layout, thinking critically is essential if you want to be able to effectively express your ideas to your audience. Critical thinking ensures that you omit research that isn't relevant, examine the evidence and only choose the most appropriate ideas to include in your final draft. Developing your critical thinking skills can help you to become a more powerful writer and connect with your audience on a deeper level.


  1. Podcasting

Podcasting features the human voice, which reaches humans in a way that writing can't. When people listen to podcasts, they can feel the podcaster's personality and emotions, which can sometimes be more difficult to convey through the written word. Therefore, podcasting is a great option for those who enjoy the critical thinking skills that come with writing but enjoy the dynamic audio platform that a podcast offers. The good news is that there are plenty of podcast genres to choose from, including comedy, true crime, politics or music. Choose whichever genre you resonate with most, and your passion will show through to your audience. Podcasting is a great way to exercise a part of your brain that you've likely not used before, and it can also help you to build self-confidence and a sense of community with your listeners.


Just like any other skill, critical thinking can be strengthened with practice. Using these five methods can be a fun way to hone this essential skill.
