Hello everyone, how are you all doing today? Hope all is fine! ?
Unfortunately, I suffer from anxiety on a mild level, and it is not considered a panic disorder yet as I try to solve this problem with all the forces I have and I do try to socialize with the few friends I have got. This is a good point and I am happy that I still can go out and do the normal things that must be done.
Usually, I am a total staying-indoors person, and I do prefer very much writing my articles, poetry and short stories, reading a good book, researching something interesting on the internet and handcrafting. When I feel too much worried about something, I just need some time creating something with my hands and all I do is create rugs and other pieces of crochet.
I really do love to work as an artisan to relax a little from all the stress the world causes me and creating something concrete is the best option for me to maintain my focus and think about nothing except the work itself. Working with lines, especially wool and fibers for tapestry, is what I like the most. The picture you see is a work I just finished. It is a small rug but can be hanged on the wall as it is a light piece.
What is your therapy? What do you do to calm yourself down? How do you empty your mind to think clearly about something?
Have a great day dear friends! ?
