Out of all the crafts, cross stitch is not only one of the easiest to learn but it also has numerous benefits on the body and mind. Even a small motif can offer hours of mental stimulation, keeping the mind focused on the simple stitches and subsequently reducing stress and anxiety. It also keeps the fingers and arms mobile without being too physically strenuous or taxing. Ideal for beginners or those seeking to refresh their knowledge.
