Feeling a little lonely and isolated, then why not try joining a local club
Feeling lonely and isolated unfortunately became a common problem during the two and half years of the terrible Covid pandemic! People were confined to their homes and gardens for months at a time and couldn’t get out to visit friends and family as they would normally do. Doctors were swamped with CoronaVirus patients and many normally fit and healthy people went under the radar as they tried to cope with feelings of depression and anxiety caused by being on their own for long periods of time. Some forward-thinking adults thought about turning to their artistic talents to keep themselves busy and have something creative to focus on. Many ordered themselves a Macrame Kit so that they could sit in a favourite comfy chair and pass a few hours keeping their minds and hands active by making something beautiful. A friendship bracelet perhaps that they could also make for a close friend and post to them with a card letting them know they were in their thoughts and prayers.
Now that the Pandemic is almost over and life is returning to a new normal, people are still struggling to adapt and are finding it hard to socialise and make new friends. Making the effort to join a new club is a great way of getting out of the house on a weekly basis, meeting new people and even learning a new skill. Trying something creative could really help any lingering feelings of anxiety as it is well documented by doctors and professionals that using any artistic talents like painting, drawing, knitting, crocheting, and a Macrame Kit can be incredibly therapeutic and relaxing. Why not join a local club that teaches Macrame so that you not only have fun but learn a new skill to pass onto your friends and family.
Learning a new skill or enhancing an old one is a wonderful way to pass a happy hour or two and no matter how old you are, what ethnicity and background you come from or what colour your skin is, a local, friendly club could be a great place to attend. Make new friends, enjoy a cup of tea, laugh and create something lovely, all at the same time! What could be better for the well-being and mental health of most people than to spend time with others.
