BHP059: Mindfulness and Mental Health Benefits of Crochet

mental health benefits of crochet

Why do you crochet?

Perhaps you use crochet as a creative outlet. Maybe you even use crochet as a way to unwind after a long hard day. What if I told you that you can use crochet to help you achieve even more? If you enjoy this craft, there’s no doubt you experience joy and accomplishment but this episode challenges us to dig deeper and explore the internal benefits of crochet.

Today’s Guest

I’m joined by, Sandra, also known as Mobius Girl and she’s here to share how we can use knit and crochet as a way to meditate, be in the present and train ourselves to maintain focus on tasks. This was an “ah-ha” moment for me – realizing that I could use crochet as a way to train myself to maintain focus.

You’ll Learn

  • About Sandra, her story and her new book.
  • About crochet as a meditative activity and reliever of stress.
  • How you can reduce isolation through your craft.
  • What it means to find your flow and how you go about achieving it.
  • About the role of mastery and pleasure in reducing symptoms of depression.
