Crochting wire and your brain

Occasionally people that see my work for the firs time would stop by either virtually or in real life and say, WOW you are so patient !!! I could never do that...
For their astonishment  i tell them they couldn't be more wrong, I'm a rather active person that can't really stay still for too long. Crocheting is surprisingly calming , its my meditation . This is also why I refuse to refer to my jewelry  wire crocheting as work, so what if its a source of income.
When I started giving my workshops i learned i wasnt alone there, many of the woman i meet say it gives them this very same feeling, especially with the designs that require more crocheting then assembling, such as the Cleopatra necklace, the YoolaCuff or the YoolaTube necklace.
But all this i already knew , what surprised me was that the other day when i was talking to a colleague about my wire crocheting addiction, he told me that studies show it also has benefits to the brain, (is that's why woman age better then man.... I wonder...).
I googled it and learned that according to Neuroscientist Dr. Yonas Geda from the Mayo Clinic, these activities seem to be neuro-protective and have been shown to reduce memory loss in later years by as much as 50%. he says that these activities also help to:
Lower stress
Reduce pain
Reduce symptoms of depression
Boost your immune system
Lower your blood pressure

enjoy your crocheting, knitting, sewing :)
