HEALTH BENEFITS OF SEWING It relieves stress. As you sew, you start focusing entirely on the task in front of you. It allows you to slowly isolate yourself from the things that stress you out.
It boosts your focus. Since you only think about the task in front of you during sewing, your focus will improve. From planning and designing your project to threading the needle or a sewing machine and actually sewing, each part of this hobby will make your brain work up a bit of sweat.
It improves your self-confidence. To me, there’s no better feeling than the one I get when I’m looking at something I made from scratch. Knowing that a piece of clothing didn’t exist before I decided to make it and seeing how great it turned out makes my self-confidence levels bust through the ceiling.
It improves your eye-hand coordination. Threading the needle, precisely cutting the fabric, properly moving the fabric under the sewing machine, all these tasks require great eye-hand coordination if you wish to complete them successfully.
