7 Reasons DIY is Getting Wildly Popular

2020 has been a year of unexpected events and challenges, with COVID-19 changing our lives drastically and allowing us to stay home with some time to spare. Many of us have found new hobbies and refreshed some old ones, with DIY (do it yourself) getting increasingly popular.

You can DIY various things, from making toys with old newspapers to renovating your home. Here, we list seven reasons to convince you to try DIY if you haven’t already. 

Brings out your creative side 

Most 9-to-5 jobs restrict us with our laptops, leading to the gradual loss of creative brain cells. By opting for DIY, you get to be creative, explore new ideas, break away from the mundane, and have some fun.

Saves money

Remodeling your home is a costly affair. But with DIY renovations, you can save a lot of money you would have spent hiring a contractor, architect, and interior designer. It also allows you to develop your ideas and create singular designs according to your needs.

Allows you to spend time with kids

Trying DIY craft projects is a great way to spend time with children. Apart from providing a great learning opportunity to kids, it will help you let go of stress and anxiety. Making DIY crafts is a great way to teach children the value of hard work and skills. It allows them to grow and appreciate the value of repurposing, recycling, and reusing.

It is environment friendly.

Many DIY products use old, abandoned, or leftover items such as cardboard boxes, discarded clothing, and obsolete furniture that you would most likely throw away. Thanks to DIY, you get to reuse many of these things, saving money and the environment. 

Gives you a sense of achievement

Making something with your hands gives you a sense of achievement and satisfaction little else can match. It will make you happy and motivate you to continue creating things. It will also boost your confidence to try new things and take life head-on.

Helps you learn new skills

DIY isn’t limited to one particular field or art; you can try it for everything. No matter what you choose to do yourself, it will improve your skills and help you learn new ones. You can also make money by selling your DIY products for some extra monetary boost.

Helps you become self-reliant

Another benefit of DIY is that you no longer have to rush to the supermarket for everything. Creating your things gives you a sense of independence and self-reliance, which is an excellent morale booster.

HAPPY 100th Anniversary to the legendary @wgnradio  The radio station was always playing at my house growing up… mom would listen every night on her transistor radio when she was sewing or doing laundry… and Dad always had it tuned-in in the car. There was never a day that we weren’t listening to the personalities that made it so great. 
And then to actually be on the air at WGN 720 was always so surreal to me. 
I am honored and blessed to have been a very very small part of 100 years. 💙💙💙 To those who made it happen, thank you.  Long live radio!!
