The Knitting Stress Relief Tactics You Should Try

Knitting is one the best activities to take up to relieve stress. The best part about it is that you will have produced something at the end of it – a cute pair of gloves or a dazzling scarf! Knitting stress relief is real! What’s better than relieving stress AND making something cool? You could even turn it into a little side hustle and sell things to your friends. Or just give them away if you want to be generous.

Mental occupation

Occupying your mind And focusing on something other than the daily stress of life is a fantastic way to take you mentally out of anxiety-ridden situations. In knitting, you have to count, you have to focus and concentrate, but the repetitive actions make it super relaxing and easy to do.

Physical movements

Unlike reading or watching tv knitting is an active pastime which uses physical movements to induce mindfulness. If like me, you get a little restless sometimes watching movies or ‘chilling’ for too long, knitting is perfect. When you complete a project, you get a sense of pride and accomplishment that is difficult to achieve after watching the 3000th episode of Breaking Bad.

Health benefits

It has been scientifically proven that this granny sport, as I love to call it, can actually lower your heart rate and blood pressure, helping to relive symptoms that come with depression, anxiety and other mental health issues. Seriously knitting stress relief is legitimate.
