If you’re like me it just dawned on you that the time to start planning for the holiday season is NOW. Earlier this week my husband started the frantic search for affordable plane tickets. And, because I love handmade gifts (and perhaps am a bit of a glutton for punishment), I began taking inventory of all my crafting supplies and started a new knitting project. Unfortunately, preparation for the holiday season is one of those times that my yoga practice suffers and my mind spins with infinite to-do lists.
So this is perfect timing for a reminder of the many ways yoga can help ease the pain and stress of crafting on a deadline. I loved the feature Crafting a Green World did on yoga for crafters. They covered a wide variety of crafts–everything from jewelry to scrapbooking–and even specific body parts that crafters tend to sacrifice for their art.
Be sure to check the blog, then let us know what projects you plan to work on this season. Does yoga help you with your crafting hobbies? Do you use it to combat holiday stress?
