Ralphie Koppelman, who was diagnosed
with autism at age 2, has always had
difficulty communicating with strangers
and hates to break his routine- but the
second his mom introduced him to
Pokemon GO, he became excited to take
new paths for the game, and he’s been
laughing, conversing, interacting, giving
high fives, and making eye contact with
total strangers ever since. SourceSource 2Source 3
I’m so glad I can finally post this! (Texts are not shown so you can still buy the magazine and read about all the activities you can do. ;))
This was my first assignment that I did for American Girl in 2013 (the other one I posted, I worked on afterwards) and I loved working on it. I had to illustrate several activities that you can do during winter and the holidays,with recipes, crafting and so on for their current special holiday issue.

This makes total sense: When you’re engaged in an activity you truly enjoy, you’re happy. And, when you’re happy you’re not dwelling on all the negative things in life, nor are you stressed about obligations or problems. Certainly this is a good thing from an emotional point of view, but it also has physical benefits.
We know exercise reduces stress, but it turns out that more simple stationary things, like doing puzzles, painting or sewing can help, too.
