Crochet: A Mindfulness Practice
Updated: Jul 22, 2020
When you crochet, your full attention goes to your work, no time to let your mind wander. If your mind wanders for a quick second, it is gently and naturally brought back to the present moment so your attention goes right back to the movement of your fingers and the position of the thread to create the next stitch. Learn to create simple patterns such as scarf or shawl to improve your focus and develop an enjoyable mindfulness practice. Individuals who practice mindfulness report a reduction of stress and anxiety, improvement in concentration, memory, and cognitive ability, and a general feeling of well-being.
