Take on the challenge of learning something new-origami. Origami is known to help improve mental health & strengthen concentration ability.
Like painting and other forms of art, origami is very calming. Origami has shown to enhance the ability to be aware of what is happening in the moment and focus, it helps develop spatial and perception skills, learn mathematics, refine dexterity and hand-eye coordination.
Origami also is noted for encouraging one the ability to let go of perfectionism and self-judgement as well as proving to be a positive coping mechanism for anxiety and other mental challenges one may face. Often perceived to be very challenging, if one is willing to invest the time and effort into folding a model, they may find origami to be a very relaxing, calming, and satisfactory experience.
