My husband used to be very stressed all the time until he took up airplane modelling. Now, he spends time in his little workshop next to the bedroom, and is very chilled out and relaxed. It's great mental therapy!
I think mine's stress comes from lack of work right now too. It stinks, but maybe he could find a hobby that will help him relax.Awesome! Mine works on tractors but he is still stressed! I believe his is from lack of work. I am glad yours found something that calms him down.
I like doing puzzles! It's been quite awhile since I have done any, however. I need to pick them back up. Crossword puzzles are my favorite, although I've never been good enough to do well with a New York Times version.Hobbies are much more important than people realize, especially ones that require close attention. The long term benefits of crossword puzzles, number puzzles, and other activities that give your brain "exercise" are proven to help combat diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.
