Hobbies

I’m sure all of you have many hobbies, including but not limited to: art, baking, gardening, jigsaws, brain games, fresh air, sports, board games, video games. These hobbies are a great way to give ourselves down-time and to think about who we are and our personalities. These hobbies don’t need to be serious and you don’t need to be good at them to enjoy them.
