  • The Positive Effects of Crafts and Hobbies on Your Health

     

     

    It may not sound very important but having something that you enjoy doing outside of watching television is very important. I’m talking about crafts and hobbies and such. Having a hobby has been proven to help lower stress levels in people and even have positive effects on your moods. People suffering from depression and anxiety are often advised to take up hobby to help keep stress at bay and provide something to look forward to.

     

    Most of us enjoyed participating in crafting as kids, but with the time restraints and other commitments that come with being an adult, it’s hard to take the time to do something fun for ourselves. If you feel guilty setting aside a few hours a week for something like crafts and hobbies, now you don’t have to! It’s for your health! What’s to feel guilty about??

     

    Here’s a look at some popular hobbies that you may want to have a go at…in the name of good health of course.

     

    Collecting: This can entail collecting anything that tickles your fancy! Anything from stamps to toy trains to tea cups! Children often collect inexpensive things like playing cards and little toy cars. The joy of collecting comes from watching your collection grow and depending what it is that you are collecting; you may even have the joy of watching it grow in value! This is especially the case with any antique or vintage items.

     

    Scrapbooking: This has become a phenomenon as far as crafts and hobbies go! In the last couple of years, scrapbooking has just exploded and there are hundreds of clubs and organizations as well as thousands of websites dedicated to this craft. The great thing about this hobby is those not only is it fun and something that you can do alone or as part if a group, but it also allows you to create beautiful keepsakes that you can have and enjoy for years to come or give to others as gifts.

     

    Models: No, I don’t mean of the six-foot tall and beautiful fashion variety! I’m talking about making model cars and such! This is another one that lets your creative juices flow and gives you something that you can keep and display afterwards. This would be not only a craft but collecting as well because you could aim to collect a full series or just as many as you can! This is also a great thing to keep and pass down to another generation.

     

    Music: You’re never too old to learn and instrument! If you’ve always loved the piano or guitar, there is no time like the present to start taking lessons or even grab some instruction books and videos and teach yourself.

    Crafts and hobbies are a great way to free your mind of the stresses of life as well as a great push to be more social if you like. Use the internet to find web rings and forums dedicated to your new pastime so that you can get some great ideas and make some likeminded friends!
