Positive impact of creative hobbies

Today, I have read an interesting article about creative hobbies. Recent studies show that the process of creating something with your hands, which is also called “crafting,” is useful for mental health.

The condition that a person enters while crafting is compared to meditation. Many people take up work specifically to relax and relieve stress. Those who engage in creative hobbies more often get significant mental and emotional relief.

Neurobiologists study various forms of creativity and believe that any creative activity (for example, cooking, painting, photography, music and even solving crosswords) is useful.

When we take a creative approach, our brain begins to produce dopamine, a natural antidepressant. The creativity that helps to focus attention is a non-medicinal way to always have a good mood. Scientists are sure that if you are looking for a way to improve your mental health, then a creative lesson can help you with this.

Personally, I rarely have time for crafting, but my wife loves knitting, especially crochet.

  1. I love to knit, crochet, cross stitch, needlepoint, tatting and I want to learn to do needle lace. When I work with my needle or hook with thread or wool, I feel the load coming off my back. I relax, enjoy what I am creating and then either use my creation to wear or hang on a pole (like curtains), or on a wall as a picture. I also used to draw and paint and just might that activity again at some point…
