I have mentioned this before in one of my parent and Kid blogs, but I feel it is a need to share for a health and Fit Tip!
Within my career I’ve come across and worked with plenty of people who suffer from being clinically depressed or some form of emotional distress. I firmly believe that community and support is very much needed to help One another through our journey.
On another note, I think that having a fun hobby is a great way to help cope, refocus, and stress relieve to bridge the gap throughout our journeys. One of my favorite hobbies I like to take on during my leisure time is what I like to call mine games! Mind games includes crossword puzzles, puzzles and a couple new app I found called Wordscapes and Word Search.
When I know I have a puzzle to do I get excited. I believe that having a hobby such as this in place of just doing nothing, decreases chances of having an idle mind. We all know when an idle mind happens it’s usually no positive thoughts.
I recommend finding a “mind game” to include as a hobby. It does a mind good!
Here are some of the benefits of incorporating this kind of hobby:
- Releases Stress
- Can improve your vocabulary
- Enhances your ability and skill in problem solving
- Improves mental health
- Increases brain functionality such as increased speed of thinking and speech
Side note: I can attest to all those benefits above!
Find yourself a crossword puzzle or a fun word game app! You’ll be happy you did!!
