To play with inches tape, chalks, cutting scales, colorful threads always gives me goosebumps, they are not mare measurements for me, but the art to map your inner situation and keeps you stress free along with 24/7 creative.
Locally, we take this art for granted and never puts efforts on it, but let us see how stitching and sewing helps one to stable mental and physical health. So let’s give it a go for long term health benefits.
Sewing encourages mindfulness and reduces stress and anxiety. The meditative action of sewing encourages positivism and feelings of relaxation. Being forced to concentrate on one particular task enables you to become immersed in a situation and truly unwind.
Improved hand-eye coordination
If you’re keen to enhance your motor skills, sewing does just that; especially hand-eye-coordination. The attention to detail that sewing requires encourages coordination and relieves physical issues such as back pain.
Sewing requires creativity, which improves the brain’s ability to grow new brain cells. As mental deterioration is a result of lost connection between neurons, sewing promotes mental growth.
Like other craft activities, sewing increases dopamine in the brain, which makes us feel more positive.
It fights dementia
Because sewing makes you remember specific steps, it works the brain and keeps the mind clear, focused and active. This can help prevent dementia as you grow older.
Did you know sewing has been shown to lower your heart rate and blood pressure? Since it requires both mind and body, working in harmony, it’s easy to lose yourself in the work and forget about the stresses of your day.
Sewing may be relaxing, but the noise of your sewing machine certainly isn’t! With hand sewing, you can keep working even if you want to avoid disturbing others, or take your sewing onto the patio to enjoy the sounds of nature, or even listen to audio-books or lectures while you work.
I hope it gives you a good read and something new regarding sewing.
