Lego building blocks – the popular children’s toy – are said to help adults with anxiety.
This news comes on the heels of Lego’s new blocks for adults called ‘Forma’. The customizable kinectic sculptures are set to hit store shelves before Christmas.
Lego is said to help adults escape from everyday pressure, but is this really true? Taiwanese researchers recently asked a group of employees to take part in a “Lego-based workplace stress reduction workshop”. The participants took psychological questionnaires of mood and depression before and after their two hour Lego sessions. The researchers say that, although the Lego sessions did not reduce scores of depression, it had an immediate impact on scores of anxiety.
Do you feel that Lego could help with stress levels? I know, as a parent, when I STEPPED on Lego pieces on the floor, it did the exact opposite. Still…….it’s fun stuff, and this DOES look cool!
