Did you know that beading can be good for you?
It’s true! Experts agree that a hobby can have a very positive effect on both our physical and emotional health. Studies suggest that we all benefit from the relaxation that occurs when we are deeply involved in an activity we enjoy, and that we should try to set aside a little chunk of time every day to “play”.
The key is to be so absorbed in the hobby, that for a few minutes, we almost forget what time it is or what day it is. It is during those moments that the worries and stress of the day melt away, and our bodies and spirits are refreshed and regenerated. We don’t even have to finish a project to benefit, because it’s the process of planning and dreaming, as well as the creating, that does it!
Beads lend themselves perfectly to this purpose. It’s so much fun to arrange the different styles, colors, and sizes as you imagine and plan a design. Of course, many other hobbies and even listening to music or reading a page-turner of a book will help you achieve this relaxed state of mind. But if you’re looking for a suggestion, I know that bead-lovers everywhere will agree – you’ll find your bliss with beads! 🙂
