Why you should keep mentally and physically active as you grow older.

It has been proven time and time again by many medical and mental health practitioners that staying mentally and physically active as you grow older can help to prevent the onset of crippling mind diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Dementia and Parkinson’s.   Focusing on tricky word puzzles such as Crosswords, Wordles or Suduko can focus your mind or taking part in a craft activity such as crochet or knitting can help to keep your mind and hands active.  You may want to invest in some reasonable Crochet Blanket Kits that you could easily obtain from a professional company such as woolcouturecompany.com/collections/blanket-and-cushions-crochet-kits, and then spend time creating your own beautiful, warm, practical crochet blankets or throws.  Keeping busy and following the patterns provided with these bespoke kits that also come with a crochet hook, several balls of wool, darning and tapestry needles if needed for the pattern you have chosen, will help keep your mind focused and your fingers supple.  You could also think about joining a local craft club where they could teach you further skill levels of crochet, you could meet new people, make new friends and challenge yourself to learn several more complicated patterns.

This type of group activity is a great way to socialise, get out of the house and take part in something active, therapeutic, artistic and fun as well as thought provoking.  You could even think about making crochet blankets for family members and friends as Christmas or Birthday presents, or maybe selling them at a local Craft fair to make extra money to supplement your income or pension.  Handcrafted gifts are incredibly popular and you could turn your hobby into a lucrative money making scheme by selling your beautiful, warm, woollen blankets and throws for a profit.
