C - Crafting
Crafting is growing in popularity as a form of self-care.
Many report that making something yourself, whether its a greetings card, a cushion or something as small as a bookmark, gives a sense of satisfaction, and the process of making something helps to distract from everyday worries and events, giving the mind a chance to switch off.
Some people compare crafting to mindfulness, in that focussing on a repeated motion such as sewing or colouring can have meditative effects, bringing you into the moment and putting to one side the constant activity of our thoughts.
