Crafting is the activity or hobby of making decorative things by hand, yet sometimes it is useful too. While healing refers to the process of making or becoming sound or healthy again. Is there a relationship between crafting and healing? Of course there is! Based on research from the and sites, doing fun things like crafting can trigger the release of serotonin (a natural anti-depressant). Therefore, crafting can reduce stress levels and improve mood and self-confidence.

Still remember in childhood, when we often make crafts. It’s so fun, we also often forget the time because we are comfortable with the crafting activity. This is what is called the Flow State where we can let go of negative feelings and increase feelings of happiness.

Precisely when we enter adulthood with more stress levels than before, we even rarely do crafting. Even though crafting is very important and contributes to reducing stress as previously explained.

Therefore, we must get used to crafting, one of which is by participating in the water hyacinth crafting workshop organized by Bengok Craft.

Oh yes, there is also a surprising fact when you are crafting. Researcher Yonas Geda, MD, a neuropsychiatrist at the Mayo Clinic, completed research showing that knitting is neuroprotective and can reduce dementia by 50%. Dementia is a psychological disease characterized by a person’s mental disorders that cause thinking disorders and memory loss. Dementia could also cause changes in a person’s personality and behavior.

So, do you still consider unimportant or doubt about the myriad benefits of crafting?
