Every Christmas my husband tells me I have no hobbies, and that it makes hard to shop for me, this year I found a hobby. Maybe you other moms need to find one too, not just for gift giving/receiving purposes, but to have something for you. Finding hobbies for moms may seem strange but stay with me.
You might be thinking exactly what I always thought, I don’t have time for a hobby, and I already have enough to do. But having a hobby can help you focus, gives you a sense of purpose (other than raising your kids) and from losing your identity, and let you get some creativity out.
Finding Hobbies For Moms
- Cake decorating
- Gardening – you get to eat the fruits/veggies of your labor
- Exercise/physical activity – jogging, a team sport, etc.
- Reading ( and joining a book club)
- Learn calligraphy
- Start a journal – Bullet Journalling is very popular right now.
- Learn a musical instrument
I could continue you these lists for quite a while, but I think you get the idea. Find what works for you, find your hobby.
Finding the perfect hobby for you is a great way to relax at the end of the day, a way to carve out some time for yourself.
When you create something, you have the option of also selling it. There are many ways to do that if you want, and a great way to bring in a little extra cash for you and your family. Turning your hobbies into more if that’s something you want.
If your hobby is something that you’d like to sell, you can find many online venues to use including Etsy, your own blog/website, or closer to home, farmer’s markets.
