Engaging in craft is fun and relaxing, with similar health benefits to meditation in that it can improve concentration and sleep, increase self-esteem and distract the mind from pain and anxiety. Craft skills can also be shared, which connects people in communities and builds friendships. A handmade item is also a joy to receive.
