Hobbies can be a stress buster, contributing to mission and family readiness. They can be any activity you enjoy, such as sports, crafts, art, music or travel. They are a great way to spend time with your family and friends, meet new friends or just spend time alone. Consider taking up a new hobby, enjoying an old one or mentoring someone in a hobby you love. Whatever way you choose to enjoy a favorite activity, it’s a great way to relax and bond with others.
