I wanted to write a post to coincide with Mental Health week, which is next week, 8th-14th May this year. The theme being Surviving or Thriving?
Taking time out for myself to sew helps me to relax. Sewing for me has allowed me an escape where I can relax and forget the stresses of the day. Once I have indulged in my favourite hobby I feel calm and it helps my mental state. No matter what sort of day I am having I know that if I take time out to sew I feel so much better and get great satisfaction producing something myself.
Do you sew to relax? How about joining me in a sew a long for mental health week? My pledge is to sew something to give away as a gift. I get satisfaction from sewing it and I get to brighten someones day with a little surprise!
If you’d like to take part and spread the word about positive mental health please comment below, remember to include the #mhw2017. I look forward to seeing what you make.
