An online video from The Early Show describes how activities like knitting, crochet and sewing are good for your brain, especially in your later years. According to Neuroscientist Dr. Yonas Geda from the Mayo Clinic, these activities seem to be neuro-protective and have been shown to reduce memory loss in later years by as much as 50%. The video goes on to say that these activities also help to:
- Lower stress
- Reduce pain
- Reduce symptoms of depression
- Boost your immune system
- Lower your blood pressure
