I have told many times to many people that they should start knitting and experience all the benefits that it has to offer. However, I rarely succeed in convincing them, usually people judge knitting long before they try it out for themselves. That way they completely miss the good part that knitting has to offer to everyone. Therefore I will like to present to you some of the benefits that knitting has to offer. Hopefully, these benefits will make you want to start learning because only that way our community can grow.
Feeling of Pride
The feeling of pride is one of the benefits that I found to be quite pleasing. Not many things in life can offer you this feeling. Therefore I strongly recommend knitting to people that are not feeling good about themselves and their accomplishment in life because after you have mastered the knitting method, you will start getting more and more compliments. Whenever you finish your work, you should always show it to other people, they will appreciate it for sure and give you compliments that will warm your heart.
Can Be Used As Meditation
You might have heard of that knitting can be a very useful thing to do when you are stressed. It has almost the same effects as a meditation on your mind. If you ask me it is even better than meditation because, after knitting, you will have some finished product, opposed to meditation where you don’t have gained anything other than relaxation. The problem with this is that not many people know about this, even after a research has been done on this.
Improves the Motoric Functions
I just have been reading about this for many years and I completely believe it because I know all the other benefits that knitting has to offer. The reason why I never experienced improvement in my motoric functions is that I am a completely healthy person. The motoric functions can be improved with people that have diseases such as Parkinson’s. That’s why knitting is highly recommended for people with serious diseases. Knitting will distract them from any possible pain and more importantly improve their motoric functions.
Slows Down the Cognitive Decline
Not only does knitting improve your motoric functions, but it also has a healing effect on your brain because it will keep it healthy. Your brain needs to be used in order to stay healthy, some of the things that you do in your everyday life are might not be enough to stimulate the certain important part of your brain. However, knitting will keep your brain running and stimulating some very crucial part of it that will keep it healthy.
Keeps Your Hands Healthy
Your hands, especially your fingers need to be moved a lot if you want to avoid some bad things like arthritis and tendinitis. Typing on a keyboard is a good choice, but it still doesn’t put enough strain on your finger as knitting. Therefore if you would like to avoid those things later on in your life, you should start knitting.
