As the year comes to a close and the holiday hustle and bustle is upon us, we often find ourselves seeking moments of calm. Relaxing hobbies can help us create these moments as they provide a sense of peace and inspire our creativity too! Below you’ll find a few of our favorite calming hobbies that are perfect to practice during the coziest time of year.
Who doesn’t want to indulge in a sweet treat? Finally try the recipe you’ve had bookmarked for years or reference your family cookbook to bake something special this season. The process of measuring, mixing, and patiently waiting for the timer to ring is known to be meditative.
Like baking, knitting is known as a meditative practice. It’s the perfect activity to practice on an autumn evening, cup of tea by your side. The best part is that you can create a cozy garment or blanket for yourself or a friend!

Puzzles are a calming way to stimulate your mind. Plus, they’re a fun game to play with friends and family during the holiday season.
As you may already know, we’re big fans of journaling here at Bella Grace. There’s nothing like putting your thoughts on paper to clear your mind. We’re such big fans of journaling that we even created a publication dedicated to this practice. If you haven’t peeked inside Field Guide to Everyday Magic yet, you’ll love the prompts, worksheets, and pages of journaling space.
