Remember that meditation is good for your eyes? That the effect meditation on your brain is beneficial for your eyesight and health? That slowing down the mind is incredibly valueable for your entire being?
Last week, I had an alternative for you. Because sitting still to meditate for 15 - 20 minutes may be too much for you... that alternative was coloring-in!
Yes! And if you thought that was a funny alternative, you haven't seen anything yet.
Today we have another activity for you that will have the same effect on your brain. Slowing it down, helping you to relax. Helping you to build up defences against stress and all the negative health impact that comes with it.
It's a simple activity that may be the reason why some of our grandmothers lived so long and had so much patience...
Remember your grandmother. The patient, kind, loving woman. The one that loved to sit in a rocking chair...
What did she like to do?
Yes, research has uncovered that knitting will help your mind to slow down. It has huge health benefits for your brain, body, and eyesight. It will help you to build up a wall that let's stress just bounce right off you.
So, if it's too hard for you to sit on you butt. If it's too hard for you to try to slow down your mind for just a few minutes per day... then stock up on some knitting gear and make yourself a new sweater for winter.
