Looking for a New Hobby? Try studying a Creative course

February 2, 2018 / Sharnie Carter

For those in the States (or perhaps those who just happen to follow history), today is Groundhog Day.
Traditionally, it is taken from the idea that if a groundhog (a.k.a. woodchuck or rodent) emerges from its burrow on this day and sees its shadow, winter will continue for 6 more weeks. But without the shadow, spring will come early.
…strange, yes. But who is going to question tradition?
Most of us, however, may associate Groundhog Day with the infamous film starring Bill Murray. The one where he ends up in a time loop, repeating the same day over and over again…
And that’s how life can feel sometimes.
Like you are stuck in a repetitive routine, going over the same things over and over again…
Don’t worry, you’re not alone. We can all feel like that at points in our lives. But it doesn’t have to be like this all the time.
Adding some variety into your life can make a drastic difference.
Whether it be a new job or a new hobby, it’s time to make a change.

Why not study a Creative course?

Taking up a creative hobby can be beneficial in more ways than one:

  • It releases any unwelcome energy

If you are stressed, angry or upset, having a creative outlet can often ease these emotions. Your energy will be focused on the hobby as opposed to what is causing your frustrations.

  • It reveals any hidden talents

For all you know, you could be Picasso in the making; but you will never know until you try. Taking up a new creative hobby may reveal a hidden passion or talent that you may never have known you have.

  • It cures boredom

If you’re ever bored or stuck for something to do, taking up a creative course will fill any spare time that you may have. You’ll never be bored again!

  • There is a variety of choices

Creativity can take many forms; from playing a musical instrument, to arts and crafts, or even baking. At Open Study College, we have a selection of courses to suit all types of niches.
Why not try Complete Crafts? It combines creative crafts such as knitting and candle making with cake baking and decorating.
Or perhaps a Master Beer Brewing- Short Course is more your thing. Or maybe even Chess Level 2?
Whatever your vibe, we have got you covered.
