I’m such a believer in finding ways to relieve the everyday distresses of life - such as meditation and exercise. But, for me, I escape the torrent of worry by engaging in a craft.
I get my creative on.
I can personally vouch for the effectiveness of crafting for distress relief. I even started a group where about 12 of us meet monthly at each other’s homes to complete a simple project or two.
The more engrossed I get in a crafting project, the less likely I am to turn to other unhealthy coping habits – like eating or falling down the black hole of social media.
The thrill of creating something is exhilarating.
