Stress is an unavoidable part of life. However it has undeniably negative effects on a person’s mental health.
Pottery is rarely the first activity that springs to mind when discussing mindfulness and stress reduction. However the cathartic nature of working with clay and the stress relieving benefits that can be derived from it is extremely beneficial.
Consider the clay as your own stress ball! Pottery is one of the most relaxing hobbies you could attempt and is an ideal way to destress and improve your mindset.
