Stitching is good for your health

So according to a magazine im reading, clinical studies have shown that sewing can help to reduce the three key markers of stress - blood pressure, heart rate and perspiration. It's official then, stitching is good for your health!

With that in mind, i wish i had more time for it! Life is busy at the moment and the weeks fly by. As of last week, im back at work every Wednesday. Im also on a fitness kick at the moment too, back into running and going to a body combat class at least once a week. It feels good! These dark winter days can make you sluggish otherwise.

Ahhh well I knew that all the time lol. I have just started running too. I am doing the C25K plan and using podrunner on my ipod to do it to. Seems to be going okay although it is hard getting out when it is so cold all the time. x

What great news! Maybe that's why my blood pressure was so low during my pregnancy, all I spent my days doing was sewing and the odd bit of housework, lol!
