Coudre pour se sentir bien

Sew to feel good

Sewing to feel good:

How can sewing promote well-being (and help you become more zen than a panda eating bamboo or a cat napping)?

Sewing is often seen as a creative and fun hobby, but it can also have benefits for mental health and well-being. In fact, sewing can be used as a form of therapeutic expression to help manage stress, anxiety, and depression (or just to avoid going crazy looking at the same Facebook page for the umpteenth time).

First of all, sewing can be an effective way to relax and focus on the present moment . It can help you escape from daily stress and tension. By working on a sewing project, you will be able to focus on the task at hand and relax. Sewing can also help improve sleep quality by providing a calm, relaxing activity before bed (if, like me, you're a fan of sewing nights).


Sewing can also be a creative way to express yourself . You can create unique pieces that reflect your style and personality. This can help manage negative emotions by transforming them into something positive and productive.

Sewing can help you develop practical and creative skills . Beginners can learn to sew simple items such as bags and cushion covers, while more experienced sewers can learn to create more complex pieces, such as clothing.

Sewing is also an interesting way to create unique pieces that reflect your personal style.

Additionally, sewing can help improve self-confidence and self-esteem by creating unique projects and completing tasks that previously seemed difficult. This can help develop a sense of satisfaction and personal pride (and being able to say “I did it!”).


Finally, sewing can be used to improve social relationships by sharing interests and meeting new people at sewing clubs or sharing your creations on social media. This can help increase feelings of connectedness and community (and avoid talking to your houseplant all day).

In short, sewing is an extremely beneficial activity for your mental and physical health. It can help you develop practical and creative skills, reduce stress, improve your concentration and promote your creativity. Sewing is also a fun way to dress yourself by creating unique and personalized pieces.

If you're looking to get started with sewing, don't hesitate to give it a try!
