At this point in the year, you may start feeling a bit trapped, like a prisoner in your own home. Perhaps it’s time to switch things up a bit and do something that provides a little more than that temporary serotonin boost buying that unicorn onesie provided (an awesome boost, but still temporary). There are plenty of other things you can do to get your mind off stressful things and on to something good for your mind, body, and future.
A lot of people have perfected new hobbies this year as a way to relax or feed their soul. Have you considered turning this hobby into a business? A lot of the projects people are creating right now are highly sought out by others! Maybe it’s time to open that little Etsy shop you’ve been thinking of doing and make some extra cash?
Have you been itching to learn a new skill? Maybe you want to get into woodworking or mechanics or your kids have been bugging you to help them build that life-size Transformer you’ve been promising them since last year. You don’t have the excuse of being too busy or not having enough time at home anymore… now is the time!
Looking to finally get rid of that extra 10 (or 20) pounds you gained at the beginning of the pandemic?
