Painting, collage, sketching, sculpting, photography, even just doodling helps keep your brain healthy and boost your mood. The end result doesn’t matter, just enjoy the process. If you do want to sharpen your skills, try Skill share or Udemy. Or brush up on your art history with classes from the Wondrium.

Music reduces stress, and thankfully there are tons of free concerts available online. Among our favorites are the daily encore performances from the Metropolitan Opera, and the Berliner Philharmoniker series (Use the code BERLINPHIL by March 31 to get free 30-day access).
