The Healing Power of Working with One’s Hands

In an era defined by digital screens and virtual interactions, Amber’s affection for tangible tasks reminds us of the value of manual labor and working with our hands. From renovating properties to nurturing animals, the act of immersing herself in physical work helps ground her in our typically fast-paced world. 

“There’s something therapeutic about that. Some people love being around horses. I love getting hands-on and being able to tackle a project and feeling like I’ve accomplished that.” – Amber Marshall

Marshall’s approach serves as a gentle reminder that hands-on activities are not just tasks to be completed, but opportunities for mental clarity and a return to the fundamental essence of being human.

Nature is a recurring theme in Amber’s life. Whether she’s hand-milking her Jersey cow or enjoying an evening walk, nature grounds her, offering a space for self-reflection and creativity. For Amber, being outdoors is crucial for maintaining peace and integrity in her busy schedule.
