This is a hobby some of us haven’t thought about doing since we were younger. But have you ever wondered why we could sit for hours and color as kids? Because it is fun and relaxing! Coloring actually has the ability to relax the fear center of your brain. It induces the same state as meditation, by reducing any thoughts or stress in your mind. Being able to focus on something you are creating, is a soothing way to relieve restlessness. Find a fun coloring book with pictures that bring you joy and find some bright colors and get to coloring!

A Night Routine

Enabling any routine that makes you happy, can be one of the most relaxing things you can do. When you devote time and energy to yourself, you are taking care of your overall well being. By the end of the day, all you really want is to wind down and relax. Creating a night time routine is a great hobby to establish for yourself. It allows you to put aside all that happened during the day and devote time to caring for body and mind. We recommend a hot shower, healthy skin care routine, and journaling before bed, to help you get a good night’s rest!

There is nothing more rewarding than taking the time to create something, than getting to eat it! Baking is a great way to relax and destress. It allows you to take a break from whatever is going on in your day or life. The best part about baking is that it doesn’t have to be done alone! This hobby allows you to spend quality time with a loved one, or to share what you create with them. Of course, we can’t forget to mention, you get to enjoy a sweet treat at the end of it all… so put on those mittens and get to baking!

Another very easy and beneficial way to destress is taking a walk, especially in the crisp morning or evening. Not only is this a great way to connect with nature, but it allows you to move your body and release those endorphins from your body! Make it a goal to walk outside at least 3 times a week and see how you feel after each one. This is another activity that you can do solo or with a partner. You could even put your headphones on, or call a loved one – both of which will make you walk further than you expected. Give it a try!
