A daily knit
It goes without saying that, as we get older, our joints siffen naturally, which makes it so frustrating to carry out quite simple tasks, let alone more intricate ones. But it has been proven that people dealing with the frustration of arthritic conditions, lack of dexterity and poor hand-to-eye coordination benefit greatly by engaging in hand-focused craft activities such as knitting.
Wrist and finger strength increases over time, which impacts then on other day-to-day activities like the difficultly in handling cutlery, the ease of which we took so much for granted when we were younger.
So what if you don’t know how to knit but still want the benefits? As funny as this may sound, you can still do it! By purchasing a large set of knitting needles, (probably 5.5mm to 8mm), you can simply manipulate them, grasping them with both hands and moving them around to mimick the movements of knitting. This increases gripping capabilities, strength and a range of motions.
I know you’re only knitting with thin air, and the physical result will just be a transparent scarf, but your wrists and fingers will thank you for it and you’ll soon notice a difference in your dexterity.
