KNIT­TING is as re­lax­ing as YOGA

Better Nutrition - - TRENDWATCH -

Knit for Peace, a Bri­tish char­ity, sur­veyed over 1,000 peo­ple who reg­u­larly knit, and found that not only is the craft as re­lax­ing as yoga, but it also: Low­ers blood pres­sure Re­duces de­pres­sion and anx­i­ety Dis­tracts from pain Re­duces lone­li­ness, when done in a group Re­duces de­men­tia In­creases well- be­ing

In the Mid­dle Ages, be­fore ma­chines were in­vented, men did the knit­ting and formed guilds ( unions of the day) that didn’t ad­mit women. To­day, more men are knit­ting as a hobby.
