Make Progress on Your New Year’s Resolutions by Starting a Healthy Habit

January 12 , 2018

NORTHBROOK, IL — Survive the record-breaking winter weather and make progress on your New Year’s resolutions by starting a healthy habit sure to keep you warm.

According to the National Weather Service, the Chicago area saw its lowest-recorded high temperature on a New Year’s Day when the city’s low maximum temperature was set at 1 degree at O’Hare Airport. The previous record was five degrees above zero, which occurred in 1969. And the East Coast was hit with a “bomb cyclone,” bringing blinding snow and hurricane-like winds as strong as 80 mph. More than 13 million people were under blizzard warnings, from Virginia all the way to Maine. Additional warnings were in place all over the country, including wind chill advisories and freeze warnings from South Texas to Canada and from Montana through New England, and even snow was reported in Florida.

With more cold weather expected this winter, forecasters are urging residents to take precautions, including wearing layers and a hat and gloves. For those of you that might want to make your own hat or gloves, check out the free pattern library at AllFreeCrochet.com and AllFreeKnitting.com. Whether you’re looking to stay warm, learn a new skill, or improve your health, these free knit and crochet patterns can help! Recent studies have found people who participate in arts and crafts such as knitting and crochet “feel happier, calmer, and more energetic the next day.” The healing benefits range from simply calming you down and easing your stress to potentially relieving depression and reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Scientists now believe that “crafts, such as crocheting, can help stimulate that dopamine release to allow us to feel happier and better about ourselves.”

The pattern libraries feature high resolution color photographs and step-by-step instructions; some include helpful video tutorials so you can follow along as you go.
