We try to find time to do some kind of arts and crafts project twice or more a week. But I have my own grown-up crafts I like to spend time on too.

Self-Care: 6 Crafts To Incorporate In Your Routine

I love a good book, but carving out time to read a physical book isn’t high on my priorities. I prefer listening to audiobooks during my work commute! Bubble baths bore me.
