Playing with This Toy Helps with Your Anxiety, Mental Health
You might want to give this a try if you are looking to improve your mental health. And let's be real, who isn't?
Mental Health is a very important part of one's life. It's the disease that 'no one can see but affects everyone.' It should always be taken serious, you never know what someone is going through just because you can't physically see it.
Who doesn’t love Lego? Building something using nothing but your hands and vast creativity from the mind is the best kind feeling to experience. Psychologists have said over and over again that using Lego is said to help adults with their anxiety, and have incorporated that in their treatment plans. With that said Lego is set to release a new line of sets to help with just that, called Lego Forma.
The company says that by using your hands and brain it will bring you to a "place of zen," and escape from adult troubles.
This of course is not a cure-all, as you should always look to seek professional help.
Luckily in South Jersey there are many mental health facilities that you can seek help at. And I am willing to bet that a few of them use or would recommend Lego as help to treat anxiety.
Check out these places across South Jersey where you can get on the right path towards mental health today:
- Behavioral Crossroads in EHT
- Inspira Health Center in Bridgeton
- AtlantiCare Behavioral Health in Atlantic City
- Virtua Primary Care in Linwood
- Northbrook Behavioral Health Hospital in Blackwood
- Mental Health Association in Galloway
You can give Lego Forma a try out for yourself when it hits shelves right before Christmas.
