Doing something with your hands is believing in yourselfGetting into manual activity is a bit like betting on yourself. It is starting from nothing, progressing little by little and discovering skills which we did not know existed until then. Often and provided you embark on projects of suitable difficulty, you realize that with a little persistence no objective is unattainable. We can then face increasingly ambitious projects and we realize that we are not so clumsy, lazy or impatient as we thought at the start. This progression and the fact of discovering new talents boost self-esteem and make you proud of the work accomplished.
DIY allows you to express yourself
Creating is taking care of yourself

Tinkering is disconnecting!In an era where we spend more and more time in front of screens, at work and in our leisure time, DIY requires us to disconnect to fully experience the present moment. Manuality, by situating ourselves in time and space in a conscious way, brings us closer to the real world and helps us to reach a level of mindfulness, far from the automatisms of everyday life. Doctor of Philosophy Pascal Chabot who studied the phenomenon of burnout affirms it: "One of the main sources of contemporary malaise is undoubtedly due to an excess of abstraction". With this in mind, DIY frees us from this abstraction by allowing us to transform our thoughts and ideas into actions, into objects. This relationship to matter, to the process of elaboration or transformation through manual activity, reconciles us with the tangible world and tasks where the meaning is obvious.
