Knitting, Painting, and Cooking Can Ward Off Stress in Students
A new research suggests that knitting, painting or cooking a meal from scratch can ward off stresses and depression in students. Researchers believe that such ‘old-fashioned’ activities may lead to an upward spiral of emotions in young adults.
For their study, the researchers from the University of Otago in New Zealand asked 658 students to keep a daily diary of their experiences and emotional states over 13 days. Analysis of the received information shows a pattern of more enthusiasm and higher positive growth following days when the students were more creative.
Study author Dr Tamlin Conner says: “Overall, these findings support the emerging emphasis on everyday creativity as a means of cultivating positive psychological functioning.”
