‘a rhythmic, repetitive craft like crochet can be a terrific tool for achieving mindfulness and also because there is a wide body of research that indicates that mindfulness is a useful therapeutic approach to dealing head-on with depression.’
‘Movement also helps “break the cycle of rumination” that often characterizes female depression, according to Yale University psychologist Susan Nolen-Hoeksema, author of “The Power of Women.” “We’ve found that doing a mentally absorbing task interrupts ruminations long enough for them to subside, and your thinking becomes more clear and less negative,” she says. “Then when you go back to your concerns, they seem less overwhelming and you’re better able to see some action you could take to overcome them.” source ‘
