Working with our hands

Activities that use our hands relieve stress and help solve problems:

  1. Using our hands on a task that doesn’t demand much cognitively gives the mind a chance to relax and rest.
  2. When our brain is “offline,” it gives it a chance to work on problems behind the scenes.
  3. There is something primal about it.We have actively used our hands as part of our daily survival for thousands of years.
