Over the last few weeks, I’ve done some serious Spring Cleaning, but you can’t be cleaning all the time! I’ve figured it’s a really good time to take up some hobbies. Some are past hobbies of mine, and some are new to me.
There’s as many hobbies as there are people! We all have different interests; we all want something else. However, there are some hobbies you should try out.
These hobbies are compatible to so many humans! 👇
Journaling or writing a diary can be done digitally (there’s even apps for it) or the old-fashioned way, handwriting in a notebook.
Getting in touch with your inner self is a spiritual and mindful experience; by journaling about you daily life, your feelings/moods, daily gratitude, roses & thorns of the day, and even writing your to do tasks can help you do just that. Get to know yourself and your habits!
*Roses & Thorns of the day – I’ve seen RuPaul do it in his Netflix series ‘A.J. and the Queen’. Name or write good things (Roses) that happened and bad things (Thorns), that happened during that day. I write 3 of each, each day.
For me dancing in front of a mirror has always been an essential part of getting ready, whether I’m getting ready for a party or my daily life.
Dancing releases the ‘happy hormone’ and also helps to improve posture and flexibility.
And if you think you can’t dance…here’s a song to prove you wrong – Macarena.

Arts and Crafts is something I believe everyone find pleasure in. There are countless ways to interpret arts and crafts.
