How to Live More Sustainably

I love the feeling I get after completing an art project that I was working on. I stare at it. Sit back and smile. That’s it! The joy of making something with your hands makes you feel amazing. You may be feeling stressed or tense before you start but at the end you feel calm and happy — satisfied deep in your soul. There is something to be said about crafting and its effects on one’s well-being.

More and more research is coming out that proves arts and crafts is not just good for fun but it’s good for your mental and physical health.
