That’s no surprise! So many people like knitting because of its relaxing effects. Wait, it says that it can help prevent illness! So, if you need another reason to catch up on your knitting project (especially during cold and flu season), here it is. There’s nothing like exercising, though, so manage your time cooped up with a couple of needles. And, those of you who have high blood pressure, try picking up a pattern book andΒ knit away!

What if you get bored or anxious when knitting? Well, nothing will relax you if you don’t let it. Knitting may get boring, but what’s better than a nice, finished project that required so much work? What if you fret about the patterns and the stitches? Just don’t, alright? Calm down and take a break if needed. It will work. πŸ˜ƒ
