I’ve found over the past few months that life has become increasingly busy. There’s always something clamoring for my attention and I will often feel as though I left half of what I wanted to do undone at the end of the day. This leaves me stressed and somewhat unfulfilled. Sound familiar? You’re not alone.

Busy-ness has a way of creeping into life and taking away all the pleasure. One way we can combat this (outside of healthy diet and regular physical activity) is through our hobbies. Hobbies can improve our mental and physical health.
