Let’s discuss why we’re focusing on stress-relieving DIY.
Why Is Stress Relieving Important, Especially Now?
These are unprecedented times. Remote working is the new normal, plus mental fatigue and work-induced stress have never been higher. Constant viewing of digital screens has taken a toll on our state of mind resulting in eating disorders, irritability and disturbed sleep patterns. And this is just addressing the tip of the iceberg.
Therefore, ‘going offline’ and stepping away from all the online meetings is vital to rejuvenate your mental health. Indulging in hobbies and crafts provides one of the most efficient ways to blissfully detach from reality; it stimulates a state of flow in your mind.
This meditative state, of being able to clear your head of fleeting thought, is what makes practising a craft so therapeutic and mentally soothing.
The feeling of bliss that you attain while making a crisp brushstroke or the sense of rhythm that repetitive needle stitches create is something you must experience firsthand to understand the de-stressing charm of craft.
How Crafts Induce A Sense Of Mindfulness
Numerous qualitative researches carried out on the subject of mental health have found a correlation between hobbies and one’s state of wellbeing.
Respondents (who actively indulged in a pursuit) have self-reported to reap psychological benefits like improved spans of concentration, reduced anxiety and enhanced self-confidence.
Have you ever thought about how you feel post a workout? How did you feel after a yoga session? How did you feel after listening to your favourite song or after going for a drive with your friends?
Yes, exactly that.
Indulging in leathercrafting will bring you that feeling of content and wholesomeness.
