I hear a lot of women say, “I could never stay at home with my kids. I would get so bored!” Or “I have all this free time at home and I have no idea what to do with myself!” Whether you just became a housewife or you have been one for several years, the key to being a successful housewife it taking care of YOU!! And a key element of that is pursuing a hobby. A hobby is defined as “a pursuit outside one’s regular occupation that is engaged in primarily for pleasure.” It seems like such a luxury to have spare time to take just to yourself but it is essential for your mental well-being. You are more than a wife and a mother! You need to take care of you.
