How Knitting Can Stop Anxiety


Are you a knitter?

If not keep reading to learn some amazing benefits. If yes, then you know how amazing you feel when you knit.

Do you know why?

It releases Dopamine which makes you feel good, happy.

Knitting can also  provide a sense of control that reduces feelings of uncertainty or overthinking. It does this by helping your to relax and to breathe, therefore feeling more calm.

A simple google search will show you all of the positive benefits that can come with knitting.

My personal favorite benefit is that "the meditative and repetitive action of both knitting and crocheting help to focus the mind on the activity, thereby slowing the nervous system and reducing anxiety and stress hormones (cortisol) in the body". - henryford.com


Knitting is an incredible tool that can be helpful when coping with the very difficult things that may present themselves in your life.

Knitting has been used effectively to help people who are coping with depression. This is also true of people who have extreme  anxiety. I know that it helped me get through the most stressful part of my life.

Because of this I wanted to be able to teach others the skills that I have used in the past and continue to use now to help redirect anxiety, depression, and overwhelm.

You've heard the rule - when you learn something good, spread it around to others. Ok, I don't know if I made it up or read it somewhere but it is true regardless.

I wanted to share what I already know that helps me and I absolutely and positively know that it will help you too.
