Learnin’ stuffs. Like, all sorts of stuff. I really love to learn, and much of it is actually useful or will be later.

And catching up on world events. It’s a busy, busy world out there!

Subscribing because I have been feeling the same way lately. I kept joking that after the wedding was done I would need to find a new hobby to fill in all the time I had spent wedding planning. But so far I havent found a hobby yet.

I’ve been feeling in a funk lately and this gross weather we are having isnt helping. I am hoping once it’s nicer I can go on walks again outside, work in the yard, etc.

Ive also beent throwing myself into house projects lately. Making some DIY crafts, getting some painting done and redocorating has helped too.

I signed up for a weekly belly dancing class, which was a lot of fun and gave me something to do. That’s over so right now I’m looking into the different book clubs at our local library (there’s a children’s lit for adults one that I think I’ll join). 

I only work part time, so I really feel the lonely boredom if I don’t find things to do with my time. I also like joining things because it helps me make new friends outside of work.

Is there anything near you like a library or community center that you could check out?

@Soon2BeeMrsG:  Sounds like you need something to look forward to. We always have a vacation planned when one ends, so that helps having something to keep us going when stuff gets a bit boring.

We’re homebodies, so we’d go crazy if we didn’t do the activities you describe lol. You sound a bit more extroverted. I would meet with friends more if I were you, maybe try a new class or activity together. Go on walks around your city… do something a bit new.

Try new restaurants. Even if you’re on a healthy eating kick, you need to treat yourself occasionally.

Get a hobby. Learn something you’ve always been curious about. Get into a new TV show. Remodel/redecorate parts of the house. Try gardening… etc.

I watch movies, read maagzines, play a ton of games online. I love to bake, so I do that too (but only once in a while since I am on a healty kick since gaining a ton of weight after the honeymoon).

Darling Husband and I also take walks. It is great to get out into the fresh air and talk about our day.

time to find a new hobby.

Or rearrange what you did do that was unhealthy into healthy activities.

Instead of meeting your friends for drinks, why can you meet at a coffee shop and have tea and chat there? Or meet at the mall simply to walk around it and window shop. Or have them over to chat and watch a weekly favorite TV show.

Start a healthy cooking dinner club once a month. Invite people over and each person/coupld is in charge of a healthy recipe (dessert, app) and they bring the recipe to share with others. You can use your own recipes as well as cooking light recopes, pinterest etc.

On weekends (if its not warm enough youll have to wait) plan a BBQ at a local park and play frisbee with a group of friends instead of just going to lunch,

Darling Husband and I like to do everything together….be it cooking, working out, watching TV, and playing video games (only 2 player ones though) but when we do have our separate times, he likes to fart around on the internet dreaming of the “perfect camp set up” while I’m busy trying to decide where we’re gonna travel to next….

We ARE TTC but we’ve had problems so to curb my own desire to buy all things baby (which I did years ago when TTC w/my exH) I go crazy wild buying baby things for anybody I know that’s expecting. It seems to help for the time being!
