Knitting For Mental Health

Research suggests that knitting can have a positive impact on mental health and I know this to be true from personal experience! It provides a gentle, low-stress form of self-care that can help to promote emotional well-being.

The repetitive motions involved in knitting can be calming and meditative, and it helps in reducing the stress and anxiety I often feel. Complex PTSD is no joke, believe me. As for ADHD, knitting helps to keep my fidgety fingers busy. πŸ™‚πŸ§Ά

Knitting can also be a social activity, providing opportunities for connection and community with fellow knitters. This can help to combat feelings of isolation and loneliness and let’s face it, these days there are plenty of folk who spend a lot of their time alone. In addition, engaging in a creative activity like knitting can boost self-esteem and provide a sense of accomplishment. Knitting and craft groups are great, so if you can manage to find one in your local area, I urge you to join.
