Why LEGO is good for adults

Lego is not just for kids. It has many benefits for adults too. According to a licensed psychotherapist, Melissa Lapides, using Lego as an adult can be great to reduce stress and anxiety.

Playing with Lego as an adult comes with many different benefits including a way to practice mindfulness. There are a handful of other mental health perks too.

The most obvious benefit of LEGO is the development of fine motor skills in both children and adults. Connecting the pieces together properly requires small, very precise movements that increase dexterity and help teach control.

Lego can also help improve focus and concentration, increase spatial awareness, encourage lateral thinking and creative problem solving, inspire experimentation and adventure, teach organization skills and patience, and better communication and teamwork.
