Busy people are never busybodies.

 Ethel Watts Mumford

Busy hands

In times of stress and adversity, it’s always best to keep busy, to plow your anger and your energy into something quite positive

Lee Iacocca

It’s true, I usually am too busy keeping myself on track that I’ve no time left to be a busy body.  But there are times when it is good to keep you body busy.

Staying busy teaches things like how to manage our time, how to stay organized and how to work efficiently.  When you're busy there's actually no time to be bored. That's because you're always doing different things. Boredom just isn't one of them.

Staying busy is a great way to keep the mind active. No matter what you're doing, the brain is constantly working, either because of the task at hand or because it's already planning ahead. 

When you're busy there's no time to dwell on problems or stress. There's also no room for negativity, therefore, it can make getting through the day a lot easier.

Busy hands make for a happy heart

Boy howdy, that is a fact.

I totally agree with you -when you get busy especially helping other people - you own troubles start to go away or at least you can concentrate and worry about yourself!
