To Fend Off Digital Distraction, Try Making Something

Nora Abousteit, the founder and CEO of crafting community Kollabora, joined HuffPost Live's Roy Sekoff in Davos and spoke about how knitting a sweater helped her relax on her honeymoon. That kind of physical, creative activity can have a hugely positive impact on people who are looking for a tangible sense of fulfillment in a world increasingly filled with digital distractions, she said.

"It's very meditative," said Abousteit. "A lot of people are crafting because they find it very relaxing. Today, in a day of constant Twitter and Facebook feeds, and a lot of digital media, people like the tactility and they actually really enjoy that sense of accomplishment you get when you have that finished project in your hands."
