Crochet as a cure for depression

Lately, I have had a feeling of the blues. Feelings of inadequacy, mood swings, insomnia and just tiredness. I couldn’t figure out why. After talking to some friends, I realized that these symptoms could be also be the start of menopause since I also have been experiencing body temperature rising for no apparent reason. Anyway, instead of feeding into these feelings, I told myself to snap out of it. I know I needed to do something. My family and I are at the application stage of our quest to get a home through Habitat Home for Humanity. I am just starting my marketing campaign of making my hobby into my main hustle. Once I get all of my ducks in a row,then I will announce on a post in the near future. My way of getting out of my funk was to pick up my hook and yarn. For some reason, when I start seeing a skein of yarn turn into a useful object, it lifts my spirits. Each stitch is a reminder that I have the skill to make something that can used to keep warm, lift spirits, or something that I don’t have to buy in a store. That is the power of yarn. Whether you crochet or knit, there is always something to make to add peace in your world.
