Today's episode is sponsored by - a new secondhand marketplace where you can find great values on top quality clothing, tools, jewelry, home items and one-of-a-kind gifts online from select Goodwills across the country, all without having to leave home!  And, in addition to great values, you can feel great about shopping on the site as all of the net proceeds fund local Goodwill community programs! Go see the cute Elie Tahari designer wool top that I found at on my Instagram HERE!

In my opinion, people that have hobbies (especially creative ones!) are the happiest people. We don't need research to tell us that (it's pretty obvious if you're a crafter!), but there was a 2009 study that found that people who had hobbies (for example, hobbies, sports, socializing, or spending time in nature) are more likely to have lower blood pressure, lower levels of cortisol, which is a stress hormone), and lower levels of depression. Individuals who engaged in more frequent enjoyable leisure activities had better psychological and physical functioning.

With those kinds of results, why aren't more people engaging in hobbies? It could due to lack of time, health issues, lack of money, etc. But our physical and mental health are dependent on us engaging in some of these fun activities! And some of the best hobbies don't cost very much to get started, if you're strapped financially. Here are some ideas for hobbies to add to your list in 2023!
