London, Sept 3 (ANI): Move over water and nude yoga – and make way for “the new yoga”: Knitting.
Health officials at NHS Highland have concluded that knitting is a good way to keep work stress at bay, reports The Daily Express.
Following a new initiative, workers at NHS Highland have been striking new friendships over balls of wool at lunch, instead of grabbing a sandwich.
Organiser Fiona Clarke, health promotion specialist at NHS Highland, described knitting as “the new yoga”.
She said: “Every knitter knows it is good for you because it really calms you down and de-stresses.”
The initiative is available to around 100 finance, management and board staff. (ANI)
