Part of my transition to living in community - specifically a low-impact community - is learning about and enjoying sustainable and affordable or no-cost hobbies. Of course a hobby COMPLETELY FREE OF ANY FINANCIAL INVESTMENT AT ALL is gonna be VERY difficult to find. (It costs money to live and breathe in this modern world.)
What are your favorite ways to pass the time in healthy and holistic ways?
I would love it if we could avoid answers like youtube/instagram/websites - because at least personally I know I can become very addicted to the internet and find myself dissatisfied with all other things when I’m in the thick of it.
Here’s my current list:
- Self care (mental health): self-help books, journalling, meditating
- Self care (physical): spa treatments, yoga, makeovers
- Sewing, embroidering
- Cleaning (I actually enjoy this when my body permits it haha)
- Painting, drawing
- Making or listening to music
- Cooking, baking
- Goin for a walk
- Writing letters
- People watching
