My New Year Resolutions : To find a new hobby!

Congratulations on your second innings! Oh, how you had been longing for a phase when you could just sit back and relax, without any worry. The time has come now, and you can focus on doing things absolutely close to your heart. Yes, now you can have that perfect ‘me’ time without the guilt factor coming in the way! It’s time to make that start, and doesn’t this thought make you want to jump out of your bed and get in to action?

Taking up a hobby is the best way to keep the mind and body healthy. Why not spend time learning something you wanted to all these years but didn’t have the time? What’s more, when you pursue a hobby in a group, you meet like-minded people frequently and stay socially active. Remember, starting late is better than not following the burning desire in your heart at all.

Here’s a quick look at some hobbies you can consider learning and pursue.

Home gardening 

Learning to maintain a home garden is truly uplifting owing to the beautiful surroundings you get. So, what are you waiting for? Arrange for some pots, paint them in bright hues (another lovely DIY idea!) and pot your favorite plants, but make sure to choose a mix of perennial and seasonal ones. Shower them with water and loads of care. Sit back with a cup of tea every morning and spend time with these potted beauties. Blissful, indeed! IB158121_158121112233453_SM512697
