The Benefits of Crafting…, Michelle Podlesni, RN, @Mpodlesni - #nurseup #crafting #smallbusiness

The Benefits of Crafting…, Michelle Podlesni, RN, @Mpodlesni:"This past week’s Parade Magazine had an article on the benefits of crafting and how it is making a comeback in this country.  More than half of U.S. households take part in at least one crafting activity such as canning, scrapbooking, and sewing.  The article said that some reasons for this rise in making homemade goods relates to people trying to slow down the pace of modern life, people desiring to learn skills passed down from their grandparents and the sense of accomplishment and the pleasure of creating things.  The article spoke of a gentleman that after an extended illness found that he had difficulty concentrating.  His therapist recommended a meditative hobby such as knitting.  He found that knitting calmed his hyperactive mind and people would ask him where he got his hat and scarves.  He started selling them and it became so lucrative that he quit his job and now enjoys his craft full time."
