The news can be overwhelming and stressful right now, and yes, although you should be aware of what is going on, checking it ten times a day can't be good for your mental health. The next time you reach for your phone, tablet, or TV remote, take a deep breath and… don’t.
If you have the time and mental space, Thunder Bay Press has tons of craft and activity books and kits that you could pick up instead! Try a new hobby like crochet, keep your mind active with puzzle books, and maybe even finally get around to painting that spare bedroom in your house.
We've rounded up some of our favorite activity, craft, and DIY books we thought would be perfect for those of you looking for things to do at home (once you finish that last episode of Tiger King, of course). Take a look below!
