Starting a new hobby is one of the top New Year’s resolutions for plenty of folks, and Springtime is an excellent time to begin something new. There are many hobbies to choose from that do not require expensive commitments. Hobbies bring us peace and joy, enhance our lives, and most of all allow us to learn new skills. Whether you are creative or not, there is a hobby that is right for you. Research suggests that how you spend leisure time matters to your health, and that your hobbies are good for you in many ways. Studies also show that having hobbies and other leisure activities is associated with a variety of benefits, including fewer health issues and longer life. Here are a few hobbies you can consider starting this Spring.

1. Flower Arranging

Flower arranging is the process of making your own display of flowers. Flower arranging is a skill that will allow you to create your own bouquets or flower crafts from scratch. This will help you save money, as you can craft a flower arrangement for whatever event or holiday you may need it. It will also open the doors to you decorating your house with a new bouquet of flowers whenever you choose. Save money by purchasing the flowers, wholesale, and DIY a vase. Of course, any flower arrangement looks great displayed on Decocrated Winter 2021 Tray.

2. Painting

As touched on above, research has shown that people who take part in enjoyable activities deal better with stressful life events. Painting is a very casual hobby that allows you to express your creativity and stimulate your imagination. Start by gathering your painting supplies: a canvas, paint, brushes, and a cup of water. You can place your brushes in the Decocrated gold candle holder. I would also recommend wearing clothing that you would not mind getting a little messy and protecting your workspace. Decide what you want to paint and just get started. It doesn’t have to be perfect, just let your creativity flow.

3. Soap making

Soap making can be such a fun hobby to learn. Soap making gives you the option to control everything you put in it. There are countless combinations of ingredients you can use to make soap.  Not to mention, it can be a cost-saver, no more store-bought soap. It is also a fun activity for the entire family. At the end of the family fun activity, you will have a customized bar or soap or bath bomb that you can use or can be given as a lovely gift. While soap making does require time and some practice, there are classes available in most areas to help you get started with the basics. I recently took a soap making class and created these cute bath bombs. I just love to display them on the Decocrated wooden tiered tray.

Hobbies can be great for many reasons. Hobbies are known to be stress relievers, can increase your social network, and can help you maintain your mental and physical health. Get inspired, spark your interests, and follow your passion toward a new hobby.
