Hobbies are Great Therapy

If you're looking for a way out of your stress, hobbies are a great way to release the unpleasantness that comes with stress. Perhaps there's a craft you have always wanted to learn, such as painting, cross stitch, quilting. Or maybe you never learned how to play the piano or the art of photography. Maybe you just want to be at one with nature. Maybe yoga or hiking are activities you would like to work into your life. Perhaps it's a combination of a few of these hobbies.

The thing you need to learn about a hobby is to not let it stress you because it isn't moving along as fast as you think it should. Learning is a process in itself that should be calming, and once that hobby is accomplished, it should continue to calm you.

A good hobby is something you do that makes you feel relaxed, as though you've been lying around all day. But on the contrary, you accomplished a few brush strokes on a free-style painting, hiked for half a mile, went on a nature walk at the nearby park, or spent a couple of hours learning a few chords of one of your favorite songs to play on the piano.

There really is no excuse for not learning the hobby that you find intriguing. We have how-to articles and videos right at our fingertips just by conducting a Google search for the hobby of our choice. And you'll likely learn something new from each teacher. But the best teacher is experience. Maybe you can teach others a few things about this new hobby, things that aren't obvious to the overly-experienced teachers but that someone new to the hobby, like yourself, might find helpful.

Life is good; find a hobby to help you enjoy it.

Take care and God bless,

Patricia
