Default What are your hobbies and do they make you relax?

I am asking this questions to see if you do not only have any hobbies but if they make you relax at all.Mine is knitting and crocheting and sometimes I can relax from doing these things,I also love to draw to I love to make people laugh It is funny how sometimes I can relax just by knitting and sometimes doing any of these dont make me relax at all,Funny how the brain works isnt it?

Default Re: What are your hobbies and do they make you relax?

I live in the desert, so hiking, backpacking, camping, off-road road exploring, gold prospecting and anything like that are what I do with my free time. Honestly, while these things have always been a source of relaxation and escape, my panic and anxiety have been making these things not so good for a while now. I know I'll get back to enjoying these things someday.

I am sorry that your anxieties and panic are making you so sick.I have had panic attacks plenty of times believe me it is no picnic.I hate the fact that my mind is crippling me .

Default Re: What are your hobbies and do they make you relax?

I like discovering new music, surfing the internet and playing trivia games and puzzles.

they don't make me relax since I have to sort of be in the moment for all of them to be affective

I like watching tv too, but even that doesn't make me relax.

I enjoy it (especially watching comedies), but it isn't relaxing

I understand how you feel, I try to do progressive muscle relaxation once a day as I find it hard to relax

You would think by watching tv it would relax us it doesnt especially when you watch it before you go to sleep.

Cooking, studying French, exercising, reading, and want to start knitting, as well as play piano. Also enjoy getting lost in doing a crossword.
