Crafts and Hobbies (purposeful activity) improve your mental health

Time spent on a craft or hobby can improve your mental health and well-being. Some of the benefits are stress relief, feeling happier, feeling relaxed, feeling connected, and good self-esteem.

A craft or hobby can improve your communication skills if undertaken in a group setting, and can give you the opportunity to find friends with similar interests.

CREATE your entertainment, don't CONSUME it.
