365 photo projects and daily well-being

I was thrilled when someone on the 365project.org community drew our attention to a recent academic article called “The daily digital practice as a form of self-care: Using photography for everyday well-being” in the journal Health.

I really believe that my life has improved because of my ongoing project.
