While at the hairdresser this morning I came across this article in an old Woman's Day:
Couldn't get the photo to post vertically - the article says:
"Being creative is good the the mind ... but throw away the paintbrush and pick up a sewing needle, recommends a Scottish study by the University of Glasgow. Researchers found that quilting improved wellbeing in ways that other activities could not, adding that the use of bright colours was 'uplifting'. The activity also distracted fro the stress of work while offering challenges such as maths and geometry."
Scientific proof that what we love to do is good for us.
