Clients at Action Mental Health New Horizons North Down & Ards have been exercising their grey cells on National Puzzle Day. Tasha Hamilton put the finishing pieces to the puzzle that clients have been putting together over the past week, also including, (in pic from left to right) Leah Campbell, Matt Starrett and Violet Maxwell. Well done folks!
Piecing together jigsaw puzzles not only offers a range of physical health benefits, but also key mental health advantages. It helps to reduce stress by occupying and engaging the mind to help create a sense of calm and serenity. The act of working on the puzzle lessens external worries, decreasing stress as the mind focuses on the activity that is meditative and satisfying.
