Taking proper rest helps

Health and Fitness Tips of the day

It's not just a scarf, it's a DINO SCARF!After yoga on Saturday, a few of us forward-folders (including those of us whose hamstrings are too tight to allow any other than the bent-knee version) went to coffee at Starbucks. We had been going pretty regularly, but the holidays threw a wrench — a good one, but a wrench nonetheless — in our routine. But Saturday, there we were (an aside: hooray). We were just taking off our coats when Karol Gustafson excitedly (and with good reason) held up a bag containing her latest knitting project. It was a scarf she’d made for a little boy who is not quite 3 and who loves dinosaurs. Is this not the niftiest thing?! Almost as nifty as what Karol said about making it: “I found if I knit for 30 minutes or an hour before I go to bed, I sleep great, ” she said. “I think it’s something about that repetitive motion relaxing me.” She has been doing this for about six months. “I was knitting on the train, ” she told me, “and I still do that from time to time. But found myself nodding off, so I started doing it at night and it really helps still my mind!” I did my usual investigative reporting (checked Google, in other words) and found this info on the Harvard Healthy Sleep page about a woman who “finds that knitting helps her put the day’s events and stresses aside and enables her to transition to sleep.” Thus, Fitness Tip of the Day: Knit. Or crochet. Or needlepoint. Just do whatever tickles, in a calm way, your creative juices. My suggestion: You might not want to try something too complicated; you want this to relax you, not frustrate you.
