The last week or so I have been wondering about this question. I saw something on facebook today which stated that craft (even poorly done) was good for your mental health.
As my best friend was saying yesterday, she won’t live long enough to do all the ideas she has saved in her head, on pinterest and in large room she is lucky to have to craft in. So she was stressed with the thought of that. Probably not good for mental health.
I’d like to think that when I craft, I am in my happy place. I am getting mental exercise and physical exercise (especially with big crochet hooks and thick yarn!). But the best part for me is when I get to share the enjoyment with others. That is why I call my Crochet Class I attend on a Tuesday night, my Therapy Session for the week.
Do you prefer to craft on your own or with others? Do you like to find crafts to do on your own or attend classes?
Is it good for your mental health?
