What’s your New Year’s Resolution? Take up a new hobby with WAK
With the festive season around the corner, the New Year will soon be upon us, meaning that many of us will be racking our brains for New Year’s Resolutions. This year, instead of giving something up why not vow to take something up?
We all lead busy lives these days and sometimes we struggle to take time to properly relax. Many of us find ourselves glued to our mobile devices, constantly checking emails and social media, which keeps our brains ticking over and unable to switch off, sometimes leading to increased stress and sleepless nights.
Taking up a hobby such as knitting is not only a great way to develop your creative skills, but research by Knit for Peace has shown knitting can reduce depression and anxiety. It’s a way to take your thoughts away from your daily stresses, tear your eyes away from your phone screen and truly calm your mind.
We Are Knitters help to guide you through the knitting process step by step as you will be given the materials and guide within your tailored kit to make your individual garment. Bringing individuals together, WAK encourage you to get involved and choose from a vast selection of contemporary designs from beanies, to sweaters to blankets. The online knitting platform grants consumers the privilege of making up their own individual kit with their chosen choices of colour, skein and size.
Quote from We Are Knitters:
“It’s a good way to socialize. Knitting is not only a great way to meet new people with our same interests, but also get to know the people around us better, family for example. Knitters today have a big active online/offline community that is full of resources and opportunities. This allows knitters to expand their knitting knowledge as well as connect and create successful relationships.”
“It increases our degree of happiness. A study by The British Journal of Occupational Therapy, conducted on a sample of 3,500 knitters, yielded surprising results. It claimed that 81% of survey participants felt happier after knitting. In addition, more than 50% of the respondents said they felt very happy at the time of knitting. It’s been proven that we are happier when we’re knitting!”
