1. Start Sewing:

Take up a simple sewing project. Start by making a pillow case, a frilled one using leftover cloth. Or, cut and sew from torn dresses that are still in good shape that you don’t want to throw away. Sewing can be a lot of fun for beginners. It gives immediate self-satisfaction once you have created something out of nothing. Gradually you can move on to stitching simple dresses for yourself. Then go for the complicated one such as a saree blouse.
It is good in many ways because you are wearing old clothes which you didn’t know what to do with. Making something nice out of nothing is so gratifying. You are saving money by not giving a hefty sewing charge to a professional tailor. And hey! You have created something nice that you can brag about when your hubby returns from the office.

2. Start Cooking:

At least from now on? Real food!! Jokes apart, cooking dishes can be much more fun than you can imagine. I know you liked cooking when you were learning it from your mom. Because there was no compulsion to finish what you started. Your mom took care of the mess you made in the kitchen. Now things are different. But, Let us find out other de-motivating factors.

When you don’t find that one key ingredient in your shelves:

For instance, there is no one or two ingredients for the dish you want to make after watching how to do it on YouTube. How about putting on your pants and going out to the nearby store and get them? Don’t order them online and watch TV and hope to get it delivered on time. Because the things won’t arrive until you lose your last stroke of motivation.

If you don’t have proper utensils and cookware:

Well..girl, you have enough nail paints and handbags. The next time you go to a supermarket invest in something that has the potential to turn you into a master chef. You can’t expect to bake a cake without an oven. Duh!
It’s ok and absolutely fine if you have thrown away or thrown up the dish that you experimented with. Don’t vow not to try anything new. Remember, all the master chefs who won the season title started from this point only. So Girl, Buckle up your Apron!

3. Start Tai Chi

Don’t say chi chi, it’s not for me! Tai Chi Chuan, also known as Taijiquan (pick the one that is easier for you to pronounce) is an ancient Chinese form of exercise. It is a fighting art. Tai Chi was accredited to a Taoist Monk named Zhang San Feng as its creator. Ok no more tongue twisters, please read on– Developed for self-defense, Tai chi has evolved into a graceful form of exercise. It is now used for stress reduction and a variety of other health conditions. They say it is meditation in motion! See, there are many benefits for a lazy form of martial arts!
Dance, meditation, martial arts, self-defense – all in one. Now get into a kaftan and waist belt..You already look like a master! You could possibly hurt yourself and others. So it’s better to learn it from a professional!

4. Start Making soap

This is actually productive as well as budget-friendly. This is the same as cooking but you have to cook a non-edible dish which will turn into soap finally(pun intended). It must be easy for you if you haven’t already chosen cooking as a hobby.  There are a lot of videos and tutorials on how to make soap at home. All you need are the right ingredients. And hey, I am serious. Invest some time and money you can give tough competition to all the prominent herbal brands in India. They are making a lot of money in the name of a few herbs you can find in your backyard. But this is between us! There is an additional perk. Making soaps can help you find out whether your olfactory sensory neurons work well. Also, you can feed them with new fragrances every day. And you will smell great all the time. But be cautious about the ingredients. Because soaps are meant to clean and deodorize. You don’t want to smell like a cocktail of herbs at the end of the day.

5. Start Calligraphy

Calligraphy is the visual art of producing decorative handwriting with a pen or brush. It is the art of giving form to signs in an expressive, harmonious, and skillful manner. With technological advancement, it is easy to create stylish fonts without losing a sweat. But
there is always a special place for hand calligraphy that no technology can replace. You can make homemade invitations for your daughter’s birthday party for a start. After learning the art from a professional of course! Your daughter can brag about it to her friends. I mean, how cool is that?! If you have the patience and artistic hands for something like calligraphy you are definitely meant to try your hands at body tattoo. But hey, whatever you try, try on yourself first!
