The Perfect at Home Hobby to Help Deal with Stress | The Mad Potter

Stress. Even the word itself can cause anxiety. That nagging feeling becomes a normal part of life for everyone, whether it’s work, kids, finances, etc. Nobody can escape it---but we can all find an at home hobby to reduce stress at the end of the day. Here are our 5 top fun things to do at home that are proven to reduce stress levels!

1) Origami

Origami is a quiet activity that is sure to give you some peace and nostalgia. Remember those paper airplanes or paper fortune tellers you made in middle school? That totally counts! Not only is this activity practically free, but it will add some cute decor to your home. 


2) Journaling

An easy way to deal with stress is to write---fiction, poetry, anything you want! If you don’t know where to start, a great way to clear your thoughts is to journal about day to day life. It’s a creative hobby that will allow you to express your emotions in a healthy way. After you do it, we guarantee you will feel lighter. Tip: Make yourself a cup of tea or hot cocoa to really get in the mood.

3) Knitting

Take out those needles, watch a few YouTube videos, and you’ll be good to go.  And hey, you might just get a new sweater out of it.

4) Pottery
