When you are small and scrumptious and wild, getting “bored” is not really a thing….reason being, being bored can turn into being plated (complete with parsley garnish) in short order.
But when you live a life of leisure as a rescued box turtle, and especially when that life of leisure turns into a life of quarantined leisure, well, boredom. It happens.
And when it happens, you really only have to two choices.
Option A (which is no one’s favorite): you can just stay bored.
Option B: you can get a hobby.
Hobbies are great no matter what species you happen to be. Hobbies help you make new neural connections, new friends and new skill sets – and you just never know when you might need more of those.
Take “free climbing,” for example. This is a great hobby for when you’re stuck in any place you don’t want to be in.
For example, let’s say you’re stuck on the ground and you can’t see anything because you’re really short. So you decide to practice your new hobby of free climbing to get up high where the view is good.
