Did you know that calming and creative brain activities can reduce stress and prevent brain diseases?? We have all experienced the debilitating effects of stress but often we choose to ignore its long term effects on our health and wellbeing. Studies have linked stress with high blood pressure, heart disease, strokes and a variety of other ills. On the other hand, there have been advances in proving that certain activities like crossword puzzles, reading, table top puzzles and creative outlets such as coloring can have a positive impact on brain health. Our brain is a muscle like any other and is prone to muscle memory. It’s important to give our brains a break. Doing so can assist in memory retention and even prevent Alzheimer’s. Don’t stress, you can color away your tension at Bookmans East. Join our Adult Color Club for a fun, free relaxing event with friends and your favorite coloring books!!
