Hello everyone.

I am wanting to start with a series of benefits that certain hobbies have on our wellbeing. Today I am going to start with Crochet.

Crochet began in Europe in the early 1800’s.

The benefits:

  1. Soothing effect: the repetitive movement of the craft has soothing and calming effects on the human body. The use of colour and textures increase the soothing benefits.
  2. Fingers kept nimble: The various stitches that crochet offers aids in keeping the fingers nimble and this is a great benefit for arthritis sufferers.
  3. Done everywhere: Crochet can be done in almost any type of setting. Whether you are traveling, watching TV or even visiting a friend, you can crochet and participate in the conversations or observe the views or watch your favourite TV show. It is also a great time filler.
  4. Crochet is portable: you can carry your project everywhere.
  5. Eye muscles toned: Because you are focusing on various ‘scenes’, your eye muscles are kept well toned.
  6. Crochet is creative: Crochet provides you with the ability to be creative. It gives you a sense of accomplishment when you are finished with your project. And it helps reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s developing.
  7. Pain management: Crochet consists of repetitive movements which aid in preventing and managing stress, pain and depression by increasing serotonin and dopamine, and it also boosts the immune system. Crochet is effective in long term pain management.
  8. Relaxing: Crochet has a calming effect on the human body and this helps whose who are suffering from asthma by reducing the number of attacks that they might have during the day and it works in the same way for those who are suffering from anxiety and panic attacks. And it has calming effects on ADHD sufferers.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post, I enjoyed writing it up for you.
