Get out your duct tape! Today is Duct Tape Do-It-Yourself Sunday! Each week on Sunday we will feature the craftiness of our parenting skills writer, Amy Jane, or another crafter/hobbyist we discover.
One of our overarching self-help and good-living philosophies is that having a hobby and other positive recreational activities makes life more fulfilling and improves mental health. Our career and our loved ones can’t be the only thing reinforcing our feelings of well-being and keeping our sense of personal meaning afloat. Expanding our lives through a hobby enriches our sense of self. And, if we don’t apply too much unnecessary perfectionism to it, it can increase our self-esteem.
