Stamp Your Way to Serenity

Stamp Your Way to Serenity:  Why Rubber Stamping is the Perfect Escape.

Rubber stamping has long been a beloved hobby for many people around the world.  While some might see it as simply a fun way to decorate cards or scrapbooks, there's actually a lot more going on beneath the surface.  Stamping can have a number of psychological benefits that can make it a particularly rewarding activity for those who enjoy it.  So the next time you're feeling stressed, grab your stamps and let your creativity flow!

One reason rubber stamping can be so therapeutic is that it allows people to get into the “flow” state.  That's when you're so absorbed in an activity that you lose track of time and everything else around you.  This state can be incredibly calming and meditative, helping to reduce stress and anxiety.

Another psychological benefit of rubber stamping is that it allows us to express ourselves creatively.  This is great news for those of us who were terrible at drawing or painting in school, but still want to pretend like we have some artistic talent. 🙂

With rubber stamps we can experiment with different colors, designs, and techniques to create something that is uniquely our own.  Plus, there's something so satisfying about stamping a perfectly crisp image that you just can't get with other crafts.

Rubber stamping can be a great way to connect with others. 

This is especially true if you're part of an online community or attend online or in-person classes and events.  You can bond with other stampers over your love of all things stamping, and share tips and tricks that you wouldn't have otherwise known.  And if you're really lucky, you might even make a new friend who doesn't think you're weird for obsessing over rubber stamps!

So there you have it.  Rubber stamping may not be the coolest hobby out there, but it's certainly one of the most rewarding.  So go ahead and give it a try — you might just discover your new favorite way to relax and unwind, and stamp your way to serenity.

I made this handmade card for Relaxation Day.
