8 Reasons Why Diamond Painting Is Great For Your Health

We have found that Diamond Painting is scientifically proven to improve your health. From physical to mental dexterity and even by reducing blood pressure and increasing your social confidence, diamond painting can change your life and bring about changes that can benefit anyone, young and old.

Reason #1: Diamond Painting Improves Finger And Hand Dexterity:
Debilitating arthritis, trigger finger and other hand, finger and wrist issues can become all-consuming, taking away the pleasures of life that we once took for granted.

This is why doctors encourage those with such complaints to take up a hobby such as diamond painting; forcing action into these problematic areas and essentially staving off an acceleration of the disease.

We can maintain or improve the dexterity of our fingers and hands through diamond painting in an enjoyable and gratifying way. To find out how this can benefit children, adults and elderly alike, have a look at these interesting insights.

Reason #2: Diamond Painting Helps Improve Brain Focus
What would you say if we told you that by completing two diamond paintings a month, took a few short strolls every day and completed the daily chores that you could significantly lower your risk of dementia?

Studies show us that those who partake in a higher number of activities each day for at least an hour lower their risk of dementia.

Reason #3: Diamond Painting Is A Stress And High Blood Pressure Reducer
Did you know that 13% of the American population account for 34% of all prescription medications and 30% of all over-the-counter medicine use?

High blood pressure affects one fifth of Americans and stress is linked to six of our leading causes of death.

One of the cheapest, easiest and healthiest ways to reduce your high blood pressure and reduce your stress levels with absolutely no negative side effects is something as simple as diamond painting.

Reason #4: Diamond Painting Keeps Your Brain From Turning To Mush
Mushy brain can afflict anyone, at any time and at any age. It can often creep on during rainy school holidays or when you have already succumbed to a broken leg or are recovering from a surgery.

Signs and symptoms include:

  • Watching endless hours of television
  • Fidgety and restless behavior
  • Anxiousness
  • Feelings of ‘brain fog’; hindering your ability to think clearly or even perform  simple tasks
  • In children it is often accompanied with outbursts of ‘Mum, I’m bored!’

Thankfully there is a cure.

By turning off the television and tuning into a hobby like diamond painting, you can improve your child’s theory of mind allowing them to better participate in social situations.

There are so many studies detailing the problem with children being both under and over stimulated in front of the television. Read more about this study and many more in our eBook.

Reason #5: Diamond Painting Helps Eliminate Depression and Sadness
Only 10% of people affected or diagnosed with depression actually receive treatment for their condition. This can have devastating consequences as depression can lead to other medical complications including cardiac diseases.

On a positive note, pursuing a hobby for an hour a day is suggested as an effective treatment for mild depression. You are more focused and you will feel better about yourself.  

Diamond painting can be a social experience; enjoyed over a glass of wine with friends or a Sunday project with the grandchildren.

Reason #6: Diamond Painting Improves Patience, Discipline, and Endurance
You can find out about the production of dopamine here in our eBook as well. One of the effects of dopamine is that it can improve our patience, our discipline and endurance levels.

Diamond painting provides us with these feelings of satisfaction and whether we have short attention spans or can work for hours at a time, everybody will benefit from this dopamine ‘hit’.

Reason #7: Diamond Painting Sparks Your Creativity
Routines and responsibility are the damp matches to our creative spark. But we need to remember to put aside to least 15 minutes a day to unleash this desire that burns in all of us.

It helps us to generate solutions to problems in our lives and think about different approaches that can make our lives easier. Come and take a look at the numerous suggestions in our eBook for ways to help ignite that creative spark, diamond painting aside.

Reason #8: Diamond Painting Increases Your Social Circles
We are proud to contribute to a community of thoughtful, supportive people online, but we are sure there are numerous groups within your community that encourage you to put time aside and join together to share your craft over a coffee or lunch.

Get out there and meet people who have found a unique way to increase mental awareness and decrease their stress levels.

And if there isn’t, lead the way and invite your neighbours and friends to join you at the local library or community hall. You’ll be surprised who will nose in for a look with a promise to join in the following week!  

We know that a hobby such as diamond painting will change your life for the better and we are so happy that you have chosen to get on board. Take a look at our eBook to find out more!
