Hobby’s are good for one’s mind. According to Google “In fact, hobbies are great for mental health and can help us manage anxiety, stress, depression and more. After all, exercising your mind is just as important as exercising your body.” Especially since the Coronavirus Pandemic, many have stayed home and started hobbies…a great way to keep happy and productive during these times.
Do you have a hobby? I think photography would be my first hobby. I love taking my camera out and grabbing pics from all our adventures. I do it for fun and most of my equipment is very simple and nothing too expensive. When I was young I was into “rocks” and collecting all kinds. I even had a “tumbler” which is a machine used for polishing stones. I had a nice collection, but over the years I slowly lost interest. I do collect some rocks today, but they are usually from places I travel too. I only grab one and somehow make them memorable. I have rocks from Ireland, Iceland, Jamaica, Bahamas, Mexico, Canada, etc. Would be cool to grab a rock from Antarctica. So what is YOUR hobby? We have a friend of ours who does paintings at home and they are fantastic! We are even blessed to have a couple in our home and we love them.
