Here are some ideas :)
1. I have many houseplants that I take care of from my grandmother, and when I feel real antsy, I'll go around and do simple things like pull off the dead leaves and wipe the dust off of them, talk to them, etc. It makes me feel really peaceful.
2. One way to take you mind off of things is to catch up on some mending. We save money every way we can, and one of these includes tons of clothing and other material repairs. . . And I really don't like to sew much, but a few hours of fixing things, and poking yourself with the needle will make you forget the anxiety, lol. . . Maybe quilting or making stuff would be cool?
3. Scrapbooking. . . I will take time out every so often to piece together all of our "memory" stuff from around the house, like photographs, newspaper clippings, awards, theater tickets, travel stuff, etc. I'm almost getting to the point of finding what I'm looking for, lol :)
4. YouTube night. . . My grandma, friends/family, and I will sit down every so often and just find funny things on YouTube to laugh at and this is really fun.
Many things I do are really constructive hobbies that save me time and money, but there are so many more out there :) So now it's your turn to give us some more ideas. . .
Whoaaa I am sadly lacking in hobbies. I love music and do watch Youtube but I worked and raised my children for so long I never found a hobby............
I want to try to have a garden this year and Karen has offered to help give me pointers.
As I told her I do not have a green thumb so I will be using a green magic marker to color my thumb.
I love gardening too, so if you need more tips, I would be happy to help you Kitt or anyone else :) I had to use the magic marker at first myself, lol. . . Once you get into it though, the love of the plants and earth is very intoxicating, and soon you will be a pro. . . I am actually thinking of doing my Master Gardener's license this year which would get me into more volunteer work with my local community.
I also like:
Raising animals of all kinds and reading about them. . .
I just remembered that I like to cook, lol :)
Take a local cooking class or find some stuff on the computer to teach you how to prepare different meals from around the world. . . I love learning new recipies and making things that even my grandmother has never heard of :)
Thanks Sam for this post.
My hobbies are reading and letting my son entertain me. Sometimes I will scrapbook and I used to do the family geneology because i thought that was fun. I tried gardening but I just couldn't stick with it. I'm afraid I don't stick with things very well. :/ Oh and watching tv and funny movies and I love to drive anywhere and everywhere.
