Take some time out of your busy schedule to find a hobby you enjoy! While it may not be easy to find free time, it will so be worth it once you find something you are passionate about. Not only are hobbies a way to spend your free time, they also help you become a more well-rounded individual!

1. Baking.

This is a very rewarding and inexpensive hobby. You can share your finished product with family, friends, and coworkers. Who doesn't love to be surprised with homemade cupcakes or cookies every once in awhile?

2. Gardening.

This is a great way to grow some of your favorite herbs or vegetables and save yourself a trip to the grocery store!

3. Photography.

This one is easy if you carry your phone with you everywhere but if you really enjoy it, it's worth investing in and getting a nice camera! You can eventually decorate your home with your own photos!

4. Yoga.

Yoga has endless health benefits and will help you relax in the midst of a busy day.

5. Knitting/crocheting.

Both knitting and crocheting are very relaxing activities. Once you are done knitting a hat, scarf, blanket, etc. you can gift it, sell it, or keep it for yourself! This hobby is perfect for the fall or winter time.

6. Playing an instrument.

Teach yourself to play an instrument like the ukulele, guitar, drums, or piano! This will definitely help you clear your mind when you get overwhelmed.

7. Blogging.

Do you want to connect with new people, improve writing skills, maybe get paid? Then blogging is a perfect hobby for you!

8. Jewelry-making.

You can sell your jewelry on Etsy or make gifts for friends and family. This is another hobby that can be fairly inexpensive!

9. Reading.

There is nothing more relaxing than getting lost in a good book. Take a break from your required reading and read for leisure!

10. Golfing.

This hobby is a great way to get your exercise in while bonding with people and making friendships. The learning process takes patience but you can start off just practicing at a driving range.

11. Listen to podcasts.

Listening to podcasts takes very little energy and is entertaining. You can listen to podcasts anywhere (on the beach, in the car, at home) and you can learn a lot from them, too!

Try out a few different hobbies and decide which fits you. Many hobbies allow you to enjoy your free time and still feel productive.

Freshly popped buttered popcorn in your lap and a glass full of crisp Coca-Cola is at your side. All the lights are turned off and you are tucked into a cozy blanket.

Now all you have to do is decide on what movie to watch, but you know one movie will not fulfill your need of relaxing all day. A movie marathon is the only answer to your problem. In case you did not know what movie series to start with, try a few of these.

What was usually buried at the bottom of my purse has now become a pocket essential — and I know I'm not alone in that.

It used to be something I'd use if I happened to be at a restaurant that ran out of soap in their bathroom, but now it's almost more essential to have on-hand at all times than my cell phone.

I have been working at Dunkin' Donuts for over two years, and during this time, I have progressed from regular crew member to crew coach, and finally, to shift leader. Among my great skills involving the job is my ability to deal with stressful situations, including awful customers. My boss has continuously pointed out the fact that I am able to handle these people with grace and kindness. She herself often finds that she gets snippy with rude customers, but somehow I am able to keep a straight face through these tough times.

Let's be real here — sometimes essential oils and acknowledging all five senses (touch, see, hear, smell, taste) just don't cut it when you need to cope. It's those days when you have so much rage that you don't even know what to do with yourself, or those days when you physically cannot stop crying because of the most suffocating sadness, or all those other days when you are craving healthy coping mechanisms that actually work.

But before I let you in, we need to continue being real. I hope you are comforted with the knowledge that before I uncovered (or, even wanted to uncover) healthy mechanisms, I also went through my drought of horrible coping mechanisms. I have, and sometimes continue, to fall short of genuinely trying to help myself. It takes a lot of courage, and energy, to genuinely try and help yourself.
