Untitled design (9)Do you like to create things? It always amazes me how creative we can be when we set our minds do it. Even those people who say “I cannot do that”. I love You Tube videos, you can find just about anything. Piano lessons, learn a language, paint and so forth.

You may ask what this has to do with health but it has a lot to do with it. Finding healthy hobbies that you can enjoy can be very beneficial. Try to make some “you time”, you deserve it.

I have been meaning to go to one of those paint and sip parties but I just never seem to have the time or make the time. I watched the video below with my daughter and painted the above picture on a snowy Saturday afternoon…simple joy. The video lists all the colors and supplies you need.  I purchased these on Amazon.

We used oil pain but it was a mess, try acrylic.

Creating can give you sense of pride when you accomplish a project. Plus you have fun doing something you are interested in.

If you scour the internet there are so many things you could create. Kits are a good way to get started. They have everything you need.

I think classes are the best. There are some great classes out there with personalized instruction that you are not going to get from reading a book. The socialization is an bonus as well.

If classes aren’t good right now, take a look at what I found on line. My favorite was the drawing kit.
