Ways Crocheting and Knitting Can Improve Your Mental Health
For many, activities like meditation or yoga have become life-changing habits that help to bring calm both to mind and body in times of stress, anxiety or pain. But did you know that knitting and crocheting can also help you cope with mental health challenges? It brings you joy, it has physical and mental health benefits too.
Some of the benefits include:
-Lowered blood pressure
-Reduced depression and anxiety
-Distraction from chronic pain
-Increased sense of wellbeing
-Reduced loneliness and isolation
Crocheting and knitting is a great form of self-care as well during these colder months.
