3. Start One of These 99 Hobbies In 2022
If there’s one thing to know about me, it’s that I love to start a hobby.

I’ve snapped to it. Surfing, sailing, snowboarding: Check, check, check.
What more perfect of a time than the new year to dive head-first into a hobby that makes you happy, no? If you’re struggling to come up with something that sparks joy within you, well dang—aren’t we all after a brutal two years?

4.Age-Appropriate Responsibilities for Toddlers & Teens
Children don’t want just to be doted on. They need, like the rest of us, to feel like they matter to the world—like their lives make a positive contribution.
All children contribute in some way—find those ways in your child and comment on them, even if it is just noticing when she is kind to her little brother or that you enjoy how she’s always singing. Whatever behaviors you acknowledge will grow. As your children get older, their contributions and chores should increase appropriately, both within and outside the household.
