Back to School
Crochet and knitting have been known for a long time for having great benefits for both body and mind.
On the Back to School or back to our jobs period why not taking advantage of what these manual crafts have to offer us?
For students the benefits go from improving the capacity to focus, stimulating one’s creativity, relieving stress or the simple possibility to have your material with your own style.
For professionals stress and anxiety relieve are definitely good reasons to start training your crochet or knitting abilities, but also the repetition of an action has shown to have a calming effect which will come in hand at a moment where we need to pick up the pace again, after a well-deserved relaxing holiday period.
For youngsters and with today’s increasing interest in this type of crafts, maybe in particular crochet, as it is much easier to start with, there is a great advantage: crochet is cool and is social! People connect over this new rediscovered hobby and it can be a great way to create new relationships.
Crochet and knitting make us happy! This is not just an expression. There are studies showing that crochet and knitting actually release happy hormones. So, let’s go for it!
