Knitting for Better Mental Health
Posted by Johanna Fox on
Did you know knitters get the same benefits as with practicing yoga or meditation? One stitch at a time you can reach your moment of Zen because of the continuous, rhythmic movements.
Release your happiness!
Tapping into that rhythm with these repetitive movements found in any needlework transports you to a calming state—just like meditation. Additionally, the repetitive knitting movements also promote the release of serotonin, which is the neurotransmitter responsible for creating feelings of happiness.
Grab your needles!
We have a few ways to achieve happiness in this post. Plus, you can help us make a donation for a worthy cause during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
A reminder from Johanna to get those mammograms, ladies! Also, we’d like to give back a portion of our profits on select pink yarn kits to the Eugene M. & Christine E. Lynn Cancer Institute in Boca Raton, Fla.
We selected these two kits of pink gorgeousness and will donate 20% of our profits. Place your order with us, your favorite LYS, and they will be drop shipped to your door. Or a friend’s or loved one’s door if they are gifts. Makes it super easy to give and give back.
