Therapeutic Knitting

As some of you readers know, I enjoy looking into the benefits of knitting. Maybe it's to justify my addiction or maybe I really do just enjoy researching this kind of stuff. Probably just trying to justify my addiction.

This article I came across was simply the best one I have read yet. It goes over virtually all of the medicinal benefits of knitting. Including a few mentions about those who have trouble sleeping (that would be me).

It also has a section about anxiety and panic attacks. This section I found extremely interesting because I have know firsthand about multiple people who have started knitting and since then have had a decrease in panic attacks. This is because repetitive movements cause the release of serotonin. Serotonin levels effect your moods.
