Nothing is more fulfilling than creating something with your hands. Activities like knitting, woodwork or painting are delightful ways to get yourself out of your head.
Because of the focus and concentration these activities require, it takes your mind of other thoughts and worries and it taps in on your creative side. It has the ability to make you forget about time and your surroundings. There’s no greater sense of pleasure than finishing a project that’s a result of your creativity and skill. It’s working with natural materials, the quietness and the accomplishment that make arts & crafts activities very rewarding on its own. On the other hand, they can add even more cosiness to an already cosy setting: sitting by the fireplace, with a cup of tea, enjoying a bit of music or fine company.
