How are your mornings? How do you charge up your batteries? Most of us just jump right into our day without taking time out for ourselves. On long mornings I like to get creative. There is something about the satisfaction of saying “I made this.” Especially years down the road, when you still have a functional piece.
Arts and crafts are a wonderful distraction from some of the worries in life. Whether you’re making pottery or jewelry, coloring, crocheting, sewing, painting, knitting, woodworking, beading, candle making, body products, or any of the many other forms of arts & crafts, it’s possible to gain a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. The methodical process of making most things is:
- improves mental agility
- makes you a better student
- improves depression
- alleviates stress
- improves hand-eye coordination
This is why “adult” coloring books are all the rage. So the next time you have a long morning or facing a long day add a little creativity to the mix. You are the most important factor of every day. Remember to be nourishing to yourself. #getpoked.
