Bored? Try making something with your hands
We do everything with them. Cook, clean, read, write, aside from our senses. Our hands are the most powerful tool we have. After all, it’s our hands and their opposable thumbs that allowed us to evolve into what we are today.
They are more than just the sum of their parts.
Our hands and fingers are powerful tools that can work with our brains to create anything we like.
There is a famous old saying:
Idle hands do the devils work
I don’t know if that’s true or not…
But what I do know is that using our hands is a great way to keep boredom away.
At the moment I’m making some garden furniture, with scrap wood I found.
Not the most glamorous thing in the world. But it’s keeping my brain and my hands occupied. Stuck in the house over summer, I would be bored otherwise.
That’s an example of what I’m doing right now. But anything that keeps your hands busy is a winner.
What your brain can dream up, your hands can build.
Have an idea for a painting or a drawing? Your hands could make it come true.
There is no limit to human ability when it comes to creating new and exciting things.
The only limits are those we impose on ourselves through self-doubt.
Now is as good a time as ever to try something new. It’s summer, no opportunity for a vacation this year. But there are lots of sunny days to be enjoyed.
If you want to keep boredom away, use your hands. They were built to create.
The perfect partner for your brain’s vision. You will be surprised what you can achieve when you put your mind and your hands to work.
