This should be your next relaxing self-care hobby!
Today, more than ever, people talk about self-care, right? Efforts to slow down and take care of yourself don't always need to be ambitious. Self-care activities can be simple, they just need to be noticed.
In the spirit of rescuing cherished childhood activities as a way to de-stress in adult life, we have a suggestion for your new self-care hobby: Painting by numbers.
The fascination of getting lost in methodical tasks consumes our daily lives and when we realize it we are at a fast pace, stressed or anxious.
A paint-by-numbers kit comes with a piece of paper or canvas that features a numbered and outlined design. You will also receive small containers with different colored paints and a variety of different sized brushes.
The instructions that come with each DIY kit will break the painting process down into numbers for you, but essentially, your job is extremely simple: you fill in the blank areas on the page with ink. You'll be able to determine exactly which color goes where by matching the numbers on the top of each ink cartridge with the corresponding numbers on the paper.
For several minutes or hours, you can give your brain a break from worrying about the world and console yourself just by thinking about the color of the ink going where. You can train your eyes to scan the screen in front of you for numbers and allow yourself to feel a small sense of accomplishment as the once desolate page turns into an eye-catching masterpiece.
Doesn't that sound good? And one of the best things about painting by numbers is that they help even less artistic people create professional-looking representations.
Completing painted numbers, especially complex ones, usually takes some time. That's why guided painting projects are a perfect art. If you're looking for a way to keep your hands and mind busy while staying at home, something to fill your empty social calendar, or a delightful social media distraction, consider investing in a paint-by-numbers kit.
People of all ages are falling in love, it is becoming a self-care hobby worth sharing on the internet.
Whichever method you use, we are confident that painting by numbers will add great variety and color to your daily relaxation routine, time for yourself, self-care, and a time to relax. Give yourself this attempt to find your new hobby!
