Why do elderly people with arthritic shoulders and hands like to knit for hours?


Precisely because the increase in repetitive movements increases serotonin levels, a neurotransmitter that acts by regulating mood, appetite, heart rate, sensitivity and cognitive functions. The low concentration of serotonin can be associated with bad moods, difficulty sleeping, anxiety or depression. Maintaining good serotonin levels in the body can help with the pain process.
