Great Therapy for Anxiety

I grew up with ant farms, whether ‘store bought’ or created on my own with wild ants, I find them fascinating. Ants are intriguing creatures, and very adaptable. They’ll live off anything, though they do have wildgrown foods are better for them than farm foods (for example, a natural grown strawberry, those tiny ones, are much better than our farm grown monsters). As most people know, they are highly social with one another. If you try and run a one ant farm, he’ll die pretty quickly from lack of contact. I hate saying this, but ants are best viewed as decoration. They are okay for decomposition piles, but worms are better suited for those tasks. I used my ant farms as therapy. I could get lost watching them work for hours and it really help with my high levels of anxiety.
