I recently posted a question on my Instagram Story asking people what their hobbies were. Several people reached out to tell me theirs and a few others said they don’t have one but would like to. This got me thinking… as an adult, finding a hobby can be pretty darn difficult. Between work, trying to balance a social life, a consistent skincare routine and everything else, it can be tough to find the time for a hobby.
However, it’s important to make time for something that makes you happy. We all have bad days or weeks and a hobby can help make those better (for me – sometimes a nap works too but hey, self-care comes in many forms depending on the person and day). I had to do some soul-searching to figure out my hobbies. Check out some of my hobbies below:
- Stand Up Paddle Board
- Walking Outdoors
