Solitaire. I'm hooked on Solitaire. Trick is not to just clear the stack but to do so in the fewest of possible moves, that way you have a relaxing game (there are no machine guns or jump scares in solitaire, at least not the version I play on my phone) but then at the same time enough brain engagement, plotting out which cards to move and which cards not to, so you don't feel like you are just shutting off your brain, drooling as you move cards from point a to point b.

I'd go with Solitaire, with that goal in mind. Try to beat my record, 93 moves!

Uh, other relaxing puzzle games, this one is pretty good http://www.coolmath-games.com/0-bloxorz

My record is 89!  8)

That was a gauntlet gently placed on the ground, Serviam style, Philomena  :P
They shall not be confounded in the evil time; and in the days of famine they shall be filled
Psalms 36:19

I'm mildly very extremely annoyed now.

I don't play games much, and the following aren't exactly puzzle games, but definitely Animal Crossing would count. The PSX and GCN Harvest Moons are awesome.

I find most retro games that aren't button mashers or platformers to be extremely relaxing. Especially if you get an old cathode-ray television to play them on, on a rainy day.

My go-to game for relaxing is American Truck Simulator. I like driving as it is, so after a night at work it's nice to come home and have a beer while listening to some country music while hauling freight from Washington to Arizona.

"The Heart of Jesus is closer to you when you suffer, than when you are full of joy." - St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

Put not your trust in princes: In the children of men, in whom there is no salvation. - Ps. 145:2-3

"For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears: And will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables." - 2 Timothy 4:3-4
