I remember learning to sew at school when I was about 8 yrs old. I remember thinking just how wonderful it was! My mother sewed most of our fancy dresses so I watched her quite a bit. But over the years I have found that sewing, esp. My own clothes, is definitely "therapy" for me. It calms me down & stops any anxious thinking. I become totally centred on the project to hand. I think this could be called "Mindfulness".
