Spending hours on your phone reading all the gossip on social media has become a norm. As a result, more women spend their free time in front of the TV or on their phones. Now and again, it is all right, but instead, you can spend your free time with something a bit more productive that is relaxing and soothing. So, instead of getting anxious with the news why not invest your precious time in some of the hobbies here.
1. Get Your Green Thumb Working

In addition, you can produce different types of gardens from flowers, herbs to vegetables. So, to get some sense of accomplishment in your life, why not start a veg or herb garden to provide fresh produce for your family.
2. Get That Sewing Machine Out
Yes, you have a sewing machine standing gathering dust. If you do not know how to stitch, why not take a beginner’s course to see if you like it. You can get knitting, do embroidery, or learn to embroider using your sewing machine. The hobby is handy to make new clothes for the kids or get your home décor from curtains to linens up to date.
3. Become Creative with Art

It is another form of art to become creative with beads, and you can express yourself with what you make.
5. Relax With a Book or Two
