After writing my last, very emotional post I relaxed, as I usually do, with my knitting and I had to put it down every few minutes, to write down ideas or lightbulb moments.
It looks like the repetitive movement of knitting stockinette stitch got my mind into a relaxed state – and solutions for situations I didn’t even think about came up.
New ideas I wouldn’t have thought of. I think the combination of releasing some feelings connected to Zoran’s death and being relaxed worked miracles.
I found an interesting article about crafting/knitting and its effects on the brainwaves.
Knitting makes you calm and happy, you can read the full article here.
For me it’s the feeling of flow – and I believe that’s where the ideas come from, flooding in.
So now I am off to knit some rows 🙂
