This infographic has been created by the team at Designbundles.net.
During the lock-down they noticed some difference between how their customers were using crafty and creativity products and how they used to do it before.
So they penned a post to help people learn how crafting, art-making, and creativity can help promote positive mental health by reducing stress and anxiety.
When they stumbled upon a trend in their craft-related sales data during the lockdown, they wanted to dig deeper to see if there was a correlation between this increase and people using crafting as a coping mechanism.
They took the most interesting, empirical and experiential data and represented in this infographic. Some of their conclusions and key points highlighted are:
- Evidence to show that crafting and art-making can improve mental health and reduce stress.
- An increase in their craft-related product sales over the lockdown period indicating an uptake in creative activity.
- First-hand accounts from those who used crafting/creativity to cope during the lockdown.
