I've recently discovered a great de-stresser. Putting together puzzles. You have to focus on what you're doing and it gets to be a passion-finding that one piece you're looking for.
I used to think puzzles were kind of a waste of time, tho I did love doing them. Now I feel the world fall away when I concentrate on putting a puzzle together.
I recently bought a 2000 piece puzzle that I'm going to glue to a board and put on my wall when I'm finished. I guess I still can't get past the idea it should have some practical use-lol.
