Boredom Buster

Experiencing the isolation many of us felt during lockdown, Headway Norfolk and Waveney Trustee and previous client Paul developed the idea of hand-made brain teaser puzzles to inspire others to get creative at home, bust the boredom and raise money for Headway Norfolk and Waveney’s COVID-19 work. Paul explained that “as someone who has a brain injury, we often feel isolated from society, I can’t stress enough how much lockdown increases these feelings, this inspired me to share these brain teaser puzzle and bring others together during this strange time”.


The hand-made ‘Boredom Busters’ are made by Headway, they are pocket sized wooden brain teasers, with the aim to engage with everyone to solve the puzzle in the most creative and fun way. Headway hope to continue in uniting the community and want to encourage everyone to share a video or photo of them solving their brainteaser puzzle on social media, using the hashtag #HEADWAYBOREDOMBUSTER .
