Sewing & Quilting Health Benefits
All quilters know that quilting is a creative art and fun pastime. But did you know that it can enhance your physical and mental health?
1. It Reduces Stress
One of the biggest benefits of sewing classes is that it alleviates stress by disengaging your mind from anxious thoughts and feelings. Plus, the socialization of a sewing group helps relieve stress and loneliness.
2. It Improves Hand-Eye Coordination
As you age, your hand-eye coordination can decline which can result in clumsiness. Quilting and sewing keeps your coordination sharp and fine-tuned!
3. It Lowers Heart Rate And Blood Pressure
According to research, social activities like quilting can help lower heart rate and blood pressure. This is because quilting gives a calming effect to the mind and body.
4. It Increases Flexibility
Quilting and sewing are activities that can help you keep your body moving and prevent you from several health issues. Some activities like laying out fabric, cutting, and working on sewing machines can be beneficial for your overall health in the long run!
5. It Boosts Self-Confidence
Quilting requires a sharp mind. From planning and designing to cutting the pieces to sewing them all together, they are often complicated. According to research, most quilters often claim that quilting allows them to learn and master new skills. This mental engagement is what enhances self-confidence!
Keep up the amazing work and happy sewing!!
