Try something new, perhaps a hobby
So what, now what? Investigate the options that spark your interest. Try new things and keep an open mind. Sign up for a class: you never know what might become your favourite pastime. Hobbies promote a state of mindfulness, encouraging us to focus on the task at hand.
