Hobbies for Mental and Physical Health

June 22, 2022, at noon – Register Here

Hobbies of all sorts can help us to be mentally and physically healthier people for ourselves and our loved ones. By choosing to spend time on engaging activities that we truly enjoy, we are more likely to be the best version of ourselves. Too often we end up either just passing the time or prioritizing everyone else’s needs above our own.

Understand the benefits of hobbies for:

• Reducing stress

• Enjoying “flow” experiences

• Feeling more in control

Consider new hobbies or reconsider old ones:

• Types of hobbies

• Compare hobbies with pleasant but less-beneficial pastimes

Get the most out of your hobbies:

• Increase the opportunity for neuroplasticity through mental challenges

• Improve your physical health with a hobby that involves exercise

• Interact with others that share your interest to build relationships
