CET and ThinkTV Debut “Hobby Hunting” a Digital Interactive Collection
CET and ThinkTV have created an interactive digital collection to help you try new things and – hopefully – find your hobby! Hobby Hunting was built to keep spirits high and creative juices flowing throughout the summer, especially with kids at home, travel plans limited and fewer activities planned for the warmer months.
“Some of my favorite childhood memories are of special activities that my family and I did together such as gardening, playing games outside, and cooking up sweet treats – all of which are included in Hobby Hunting. This series aims to inspire the child in all of us to try something new, get messy, and make some memories,” CET/ThinkTV Digital Content Specialist and Hobby Hunting co-creator Kaelin Hagler said.
Having a hobby not only keeps you inspired, but can also help keep you healthy! A study conducted by Matthew Zawadzki, a psychologist at the University of California, shows that having a leisure activity can provide immediate stress relief as well as numerous physical and mental health benefits such as improved focus, happiness and a longer life.
“Hobbies are creative in nature and we wanted to highlight the wide spectrum of activities you can try from the comfort of your home. I have personally found that finding a hobby helps reduce the stress of every day life and gives you something to look forward to doing in your free time,” ThinkTV/CET Communication Specialist and Hobby Hunting co-creator Kristen Teter said.
Hobbies covered include painting, cartoon drawing, birdwatching, DIY repurposing, collecting, and many more! Here are just a couple of the hobbies that you can explore on the site now…
