For many, childhood was a simpler time, without the responsibilities and stresses of everyday adult life. Having hobbies is a great way to relieve stress, take your mind off work, and even meet new friends.
One childhood hobby that has become increasingly popular with adults in past years is adult coloring books. Unlike the coloring books of your childhood, these books feature more intricate and complex designs. Coloring is a great way to relax and channel your creative side.
Another childhood pastime that you need to revive is spending time outdoors. Maybe as an adult, you won’t be swinging from the monkey bars on the playground (but, we say go for it), there are a number of ways that you can enjoy the outdoors as an adult. From riding your bike around the neighborhood to hiking a local trail to reading a book on your porch, find whatever you enjoy and get outside and do it.
What about naps? Remember hating to have to take naps as a kid? Now, most of us would love nothing more than to take a nap. Well, why not? Curl up on a Sunday afternoon and snooze for a few hours. Naps are shown to be a great stress reliever for many.
If you’re yearning for a time when life wasn’t so stressful, tap into your inner child and find fun ways to unwind and enjoy your free time.
