stitch your stress away
While there are many ways to destress; one activity that has proven to help reduce stress levels, is embroidery. As fellow lovers of stitching, we can all attest to how calming and therapeutic it can be to have a needle and thread in hand.
Embroidery puts you in a meditative state, allowing your mind to focus on the present moment and release any worries or stressors that may be weighing you down. As you stitch, your breathing slows down and your heart rate lowers, promoting a sense of relaxation and calmness.
There is something truly magical about creating art with your own hands, and the sense of accomplishment that comes with it is incredibly rewarding. So be sure to seek out some "me time" and take a moment to breathe deeply and focus; one stitch at a time.
