In today’s fast-paced world, it can be difficult to escape technology and relax with a quiet activity or game. While many depend on the great technological advances our society has made, it is important to know when to put them away and enjoy the time you have doing something you love. There are many dangers involved with too much “screen time.”  Studies have shown that people who overuse their devices have trouble sleeping, battle with headaches and migraines, tend to suffer from bodily aches and pains, and struggle with excessive weight gain. Buy American Mall has a wide selection of American made games and activities that you could purchase that only require some good old-fashioned creativity.

Puzzles

Puzzles are a great way to relieve stress. When a person engages in a jigsaw puzzle, the brain releases dopamine, the “feel good” neurotransmitter. Dopamine is released every time we put a piece in the right place. Jigsaws also increase productivity. When you are happier and less stressed, it is easier to focus. When your concentration improves, so does your productivity. If you’re having trouble focusing on work, take a break to do a puzzle! Jigsaw puzzles even increase IQ levels and improve memory. Instead of pulling out your device or watching TV, try a puzzle. Not only will you give your eyes a much needed break, you will also give your brain a rewarding work out too!  Click view our wide selection of puzzles.

Arts and Crafts

Buy American Mall has curated a variety of materials for your crafting needs. Choose from paints, brushes, coloring books, markers, and more! Coloring has the ability to relax the fear center of your brain, the amygdala. It induces the same state as meditating by reducing the thoughts of a restless mind. This generates mindfulness and quietness, which allows your mind to get some rest after a long day at work. It also requires the two hemispheres of the brain to communicate. While logic helps us stay inside the lines, choosing colors generates a creative thought process. Coloring is a relaxing and electronic-free bedtime ritual that won’t disturb your level of melatonin.

Gardening

From planters and raised beds to soil nutrients and amendments, Buy American Mall has it. You can find hoses, plant supports, seed balls, raised garden beds, greenhouses, snow gauges and more. Did you know that gardening outdoors can also help your body fight disease? Your skin uses sunlight to make vitamin D which is essential for hundreds of body functions that include strengthening your bones and your immune system! Gardening also promotes healthy habits such as building strength, promoting sleep, and maintaining a healthy weight. It improves your mood and increases your self-esteem. When people spend time in a garden, their anxiety levels drop, and they feel less depressed. So, instead of firing up your electronic device, grab a shovel or some clippers and dig in!
