Welcome back to the Six Weeks of Wellness Challenges series! We’re on week 5 and this week we’re focusing on Intellectual Wellness.
This is a part of your overall well-being that can easily be overlooked.
Everyone benefits from feelings of mastery. Feeling competent and that you have knowledge and skills is a big boost to total health.
With that being said, your challenge this week is to practice a hobby. This could be an old hobby that you’ve not spent much time on lately or a new hobby that you’d like to get into. The important thing is that it is something you can work on and improve. Watching TV, for example, isn’t the type of hobby I’m referring to.
Need some ideas? Here are 20:
- Learn or practice a new language
- Play a song on an instrument
- Paint on canvas
- Try new cooking or baking dishes
- Practice a new sport or workout
- Write fiction or poetry
- Train a pet to do a trick
- Work on a home improvement project
- Dive into photography
- Build a model plane, train, or car
- Make candles or soap
- Dance lessons
- Get into couponing
- Improve your landscaping
- Study an interesting subject
- Puzzle books/ crosswords
- Archery or firearm target practice
- Start a blog or learn to code
The idea of this is to do something enjoyable that you can see yourself improving on. I recently got a new book of piano sheet music and have nearly mastered a new song, which feels so great! There are so many directions you can take this challenge and I look forward to hearing how you embrace it.
