Looking For A New Hobby This Spring? Get Creative With One Of These!

*Collaborative post.

Your lawn is swimming in the sunshine, and your living room’s plants are slowly getting back to life. It is time to shake off the languor of winter and get rid of the extra kilos that Christmas and Easter inevitably bring on! If the first sunny days of the year make you feel energized and ready to take on a new challenge, put your creative juices to work by picking a new hobby. Here is some inspiration!

Meditation or Yoga

If spring is the awakening of the body, meditation is the awakening of the mind. Several studies have proven its ability to lower stress levels, enhance productivity, and even give you the much-needed energy boost you had been waiting for all winter. The beauty of meditation is that there is no must-follow formula for every person. Pick the technique you feel the most comfortable with and start your day with 20-30 mins of mindfulness. Alternatively, work on your summer body with regular yoga practice!

Grow a vegetable garden or plants

Have you been dreaming about spending sunny days reconnecting with nature? Growing your vegetable garden has unique benefits that extend to your dinner table! Whether you are all in for a vegan-week challenge or you like to care for your plants, spring is the best time for gardening. If you are looking for an affordable hobby that gives you the chance to think and relax, try growing your herbs.

Knitting and crocheting

Do you always feel guilty about not using your porch or balcony enough? Switch the tv off and move your most comfortable chair outside. Knitting or crocheting are affordable options for a new hobby, you can get started straight away, and you can see results in no time. This pastime is also the best way to craft the scarf of your dream to go with your just-bought warm-weather fashion tops.

New (Exciting) recipes

Caring for your little ones means that you might be spending more time in the kitchen than you ever wanted to. If you are bored of making mash potatoes and beans on toast on repeat, now is the best time to try out new inspired recipes. Whether you are after the perfect sourdough or figuring out how to turn a mass of icing into the birthday cake of your kids’ dreams, cooking can take a whole new turn. 

Painting

Always felt like a misunderstood artist or never had a chance to dedicate yourself to the arts? This hobby might require a little investment at first to gather all the materials you might need, but it is rewarding! Some of the proven benefits of painting include strengthening your memory, building your creative thinking, and improving your problem-solving skills. Best of all, drawing, painting, or colouring are excellent remedies against stress and anxiety.

It can be hard to find your best physical and mental shape after months of indoor-living, so use your new passion to exercise your mind, body, and creativity. What will your favourite hobby be this spring?

Beauty Muse: Lisa Bonet

*Affiliate link.

The 52 year old – Lisa Bonet is one gorgeous woman. I have followed her career and her eccentric style since her days in The Cosby Showand this beauty muse has aged like fine wine. I admire her unique fashion sense. She always stands out and she looks a lot younger than her age. Being a fly on her wall would be amazing since I will get to check out her skincare routine for real. However, since I am not a fly on the wall, the next best thing to browse the web to find out how she cares for her skin to look this good at 52.

Here are some of the products she swears by –

Coconut Oil

I am not surprised she uses coconut oil. It is one of the best skincare and haircare oils ever! I use coconut oil quite regularly and it has changed my skincare and haircare routine for the better. It is definitely worth trying if you haven’t tried it yet.

“I use organic coconut oil, which is what I use on my body as well,” Bonet tells The New York Times of her routine. “I was using coconut oil before the current craze. It’s simple and pure. Why put a lotion on your body that has 10 ingredients when you can put on one that is from nature and smells divine and does the job?”

Here is my current favourite coconut oil –

 

Tinted moisturiser

Lisa Bonet is a natural beauty and hardly puts on makeup. When she does have my makeup on, it is very light. She usually goes for a tinted moisturiser and SPF. For nighttime looks, she adds some mascara and glittery black eye pencil, and that’s it.
