Does knitting for extended periods of time compromise our physical fitness?

Noémie reblogged this on :: FocalHeart :: and commented:

Good morning, I wanted to share here a great post from Funk Air Bear, which is about the problem a lot of knitters face... I have been suffering from back injuries from the last few years, and knitting really helped me a lot, giving me something to focus on, keeping my brain satisfied with learning new skills, and giving me a sense of achievement whenever i finished a pair of socks 🙂 I would have ended up getting very depressed without it! But it also gets in the way of other things sometimes. I know that if I allow myself to start the day knitting, I won’t be able to put it down, and I'll make excuses for not stretching, or doing whatever else I need to do in terms of self care, child care, work, etc... When I’m knitting I get in the zone and I can just sit there for hours on end and be in total bliss, while procrastinating everything else. Also, sitting for too long isn’t good for my back. At all. It's the worst thing to do. So I make myself stretch first with a yoga practice, which varies in length. I knit and make sure I take breaks to do a few quick yoga stretches and get back into it again. It makes a bit difference 🙂 Once I have started knitting, I still can’t stop though… So When I have procrastinated things for too long, over indulging in knitting and must catch up on stuff then I just avoid knitting altogether for a few days (gasp!) and being able to knit again is my reward, for I know that if I get in the knitting zone I ll lose any notion of time… 🙂
