Happy Hobbies - MENTAL WELLNESS MATTERS
BRAIN-BREAK #2- HAPPY HOBBY 😁
It’s official, I’ve turned into a Nana! I’ve picked up an old hobby from my childhood and have started KNITTING! Nothing complicated, just a neck warmer which is basically just a lazy scarf, but knitting none-the-less.
And, it’s given me a BRAIN-BREAK!
A hobby is like a series of tiny problem solving exercises, getting that frontal love of our brains engaged and allowing a feeling of relaxation for a few minutes.
Try finding yourself a HAPPY HOBBY - here’s some guidelines. Make it...
AVAILABLE - something that you can lay your hands on instantly without hassle.
CONTINUING - something that can be picked up and put down easily.
ENGAGING - something that will take your attention for a few minutes at a time.
That spells ACE just to help you remember!
Doing a crossword or puzzle?
Picking up a handcraft?
Reading a book with short chapters?
Why not give yourself a BRAIN-BREAK today with a HAPPY HOBBY!
