Got Hobby?

Do you have a hobby? 

I do – a few really. I enjoy writing, photography and pilates.  They make me feel like I’m contributing something unique and worthwhile to my life. 

If I didn’t foster these hobbies I feel listless. 

Studies show hobbies are not only beneficial to our mental health but also our physical health. 

What kind of hobbies do you foster?

  1. I definitely think that they are very benefital to our mental health. I love writing and photography! I also love going on hikes, baking, and am going to start learning how to sew. I would also like to start taking a step class!

  3. Running & scrapbooking! Running keeps me sane and is great stress reliever. Scrapbooking allows me to be creative!

  6. Is reading blogs a hobby?
    I enjoy going to the gym, scrapbooking (although I'm beginning to use online photo books so this hobby might soon become obsolete).
    Wow. I really need some more hobbies.

  7. I love yoga, Zumba, reading, going for walks with my diapered darlings, and blogging. I need to get back to my fitness routine. I feel tense and fixated on type-A tendencies without it.

  22. I have a lot of hobbies, but need to foster them more. Now with a four year old, three kittens and a puppy I really have no time for "me". I love doing for otheres, especially my family and most of all my daughter, so I guess in some way I am having hobby in that. Thank you for checking in on me. It has been one heck of a week! I can't even begin to tell you! Have a great day my friend!

  25. Reading, scrapbooking, writing...but it seems like I don't get much time for any of it. Once summer hits, for me, I will be able to focus more. I definitely think it's important to make time for hobbies, if for nothing else but to keep us feeling confident that there is more to us than just being Bob's or Mary's mommy. Being a mom is my most important job, and my passion, but there is a little more to me...it doesn't just stop there.

  26. I love baking, writing, reading and house projects. I only get to do a couple of these daily, but I love when I have the time for all of them. I get crabby when I can't write for a few days at a time, and I get bored baking the same thing all the time, so I create new things. I read anything I can get my hands on! Good post! : )
