Hobbies are one of life’s greatest pleasures. Losing yourself in a fun, creative, and interesting hobby passes the time, fills your days with meaning, and allows you to express yourself in a fun and creative way.
However, finding the right hobby to suit your interests can be a pretty big challenge. That’s why today, we’re sharing a list of no fewer than 13 fun, creative hobbies that you can try. Whether they’re just a bit of fun on the side, something you devote every weekend to, or even a potential side-hustle is totally up to you! Scroll through and enjoy.
Knitting is a fun, relaxing, and productive hobby enjoyable by people of all ages! It takes a bit of practice, but once you get the rhythm down, you’ll be able to enjoyably knit while doing other things, like reading or watching TV.
Yoga is one of nature’s greatest wonders. Simply by stretching and breathing, humans can open their third eyes to the truths of the Universe and gain a better sense of awareness of themselves. Plus, it’s a great workout!
Painting is one of the most relaxing hobbies around, but it’s also one of the most sophisticated! Who doesn’t love the image of an artist in a well-lit loft, painting a gorgeous masterpiece? Well, that could be you! All you need is a bit of creativity and painting supplies.
- Magic tricks
Do you want to entertain and delight at parties while also challenging yourself to master the occult? Stop by your local magic shop and stock up on tricks to stash up your sleeves. The next time you need a conversation starter, BAM, you’re there with a wild card trick that leaves people scratching their heads.
- Hang gliding
Soar the skies like a bird, leap from cliffs with wild abandon, and learn what it truly means to have the wind beneath your wings. Hang gliding is a bit of an all-in investment, but those who love the sport never regret their commitment to it! It may be worth a try.
A little more down-to-earth, cooking is a great hobby. And we know what you’re thinking, “I cook every day already!” No, not just microwave mac n’ cheese. We mean getting seriously into cooking as an art – learning cuisine. Give it a try some time. Pick up a cookbook and see what you’re made of!
- Long distance running
Marathons, not sprints. Strap into your running shoes and hit the road! If you train every day, you might just get to the point where those 26.22 miles don’t seem so intimidating after all. Plus, running relieves stress – now that’s our kind of hobby.
Kayaking is like hang gliding, except instead of a glider, you use a kayak, and instead of flying, you float on top of water. Still, you’ll feel pretty much like you’re flying as you glide through the oceans and rivers with ease! This one’s more affordable, too.
- Goat herding
Hey, well, this one is kind of unorthodox. Goat herding is cool, though! It’s a really common profession in some countries, and could even be a good hobby if you have the land for it. What’s more, goats are natures lawn mowers!
Fashion isn’t just about looking cute, it’s also a way to get creative! Staying on the cutting edge of fashion trends can be a hobby all of its own, especially if you influence trends by cutting, stitching, and sewing clothes of your own!
- Zine making
Blogs are a bit passé, but zines are positively retro. Cut and paste together your own zine to tell a story, influence opinion, and speak your mind about society! Then, head down to your local counter-culture hotspot and distribute your zine to the masses.
- Street art
Do you have a bone to pick with the establishment? Or maybe just some ideas to beautify your neighborhood with art? Try coloring the blank walls of your town with your art! It’s probably smart to get a permit or permission first, though.
- Video game design
Designing your own video games is something many people dream of, but few achieve. Why not try using basic game programming software, and durn your dreams into a reality!
Not all hobbies are for everyone, but with diligence and patience, you’ll find the one that’s right for you.
