I'm Asking: What's Your Hobby?

Most of us don't have oodles of spare time to collect rare stamps or coins and ride horses on the beach, but it seems we should make time for the sake of our health. Health experts say we should devote time daily to a hobby as a means to reduce stress and reduce the risk of developing heart disease. That sounds like a win win to me. Many SavvySugar readers report they wish their hobby was their nine to five, but I want to know how exactly you de-stress. What's your go-to pastime?
