I found a couple of links today that indicate keeping your hands busy actually makes you happier! I have always called my hand work or sewing projects my 'stress relief'. I really think I need to be sent to my sewing room more often than I go in there!
Good thing I usually have some sort of hand work project ready to go out the door with me - quilting, hand piecing, knitting or crochet.
You can read about the study here.
So - go pick up something to keep your hands busy and see the stress leave and relaxation begin!
My car line progress yesterday. That dark brown one really is orange and does not show that shade in person,
