Wellness is described as the state of being in good health, especially as an actively pursued goal.
Crafting gently keeps the mind active and encourages you to try new things in a safe, low-stress environment of a project chosen for pleasure. Repetitive movements, such as crocheting, induces a relaxed state, similar to yoga or meditation. The repetitiveness helps keep the mind calm and distracts the brain from the numerous negative messages that we tell ourselves everyday.
By keeping your hands busy you reduce anxiety because you are focused on your project not your problems or perceived problems. (Most problems are a result of your thoughts not facts, but that is a post for another day 😁)
Did you know that fibre crafts are shown to improve Alzheimer's disease, insomnia, depression, anorexia and was prescribed to WWI soldiers to helped with PTSD?
The colours and textures are pleasing to the senses and a finishing a project has great benefits:
To celebrate fibre crafts I have included my Nisbet Throw crochet pattern for free, just click on the button below for the pdf. I can't wait to see your finished projects, please tag #nisbetthrow so I can see them. 😀🧶
Life is a lot like fibre arts. It is a journey of twists and turns, full of life lessons, character building exercises and there is beauty watching it grow and unfold.
Seriously why did I not know about this!
It took a trip to the ER because I thought my uterus was falling out to find out what was happening to me! Perimenopause no joke and so many deal with this without knowing it is coming in order to prepare themselves. Seriously start stocking up on personal supplies now because you will use the whole supply in one day.
I don't want to freak anyone out but I have talked to so many women my age and have found out this is so common.
You should have seen the poor male triage nurses' face when I ended up in the ER. He looks at me and says, "You are here because you are having your period?" I look at him like the young naïve man that he is and tell him that my uterus is falling out and I have been having my period for over three weeks and I have gone through a six month supply of pads and tampons. He still doesn't understand and I end up waiting in the ER for five hours. Finally, I was brought in and put in a room and my female doctor comes in and I tell her my tale and she starts an IV immediately, orders blood tests, and started a magnesium drip. Thank God for Canadian health care. My test results come back showing that I was incredibly anemic. Which would be why I was sleeping all - the - time.
One of the first questions my Doctor asked was how my Mother experienced menopause - not really a subject that ever came up. This was all new territory for me, I had no idea what my body was going through. But if you have experienced this than you know if you know - if you know what I mean.
Honestly I don't understand how it works - it just does. It contains pure frankincense, bergamot, and peppermint essential oils. It's all natural - from plants!
I don't sell Young Living, I just have an account to purchase products for myself. If you know someone that sells Young Living contact them about this miracle oil and order it. If you want a link to purchase it you can click below to my link. I just signed up to get the diffuser and some beginner oils and then added the progessence oil. I have been using it for two months now and I have only used a 1/3 of the bottle. Honestly, how effective it has been for me, I would buy it monthly if I had to. Best investment ever!
So there it is, probably more than you want to know about me. But is a something that needs to be shared - I'm all about helping others. Enjoy!
