When looking for a new Hobby to start in the new year, it is important to find one that relies more on your passions than just something that occupies your time. Having a hobby should enhance your lifestyle and help move you towards a healthy standard of living. With our hectic world, it is easy to concentrate on work and forget your self-care; having a hobby will allow you to be active and productive while maintaining your well-being.
One of the best past-times is hiking; it allows you to disconnect from any devices while getting some fresh air and exercise. Studies have shown those people who go hiking and other outdoor adventures increase their mental and emotional health, decrease blood pressure, and decrease stress levels. While hiking might not be for everyone, it has a low cost for entry, and most cities have a near-by trail system or park.
While this hobby may seem obvious because everyone must eat, what might not be obvious is asking, ‘where does my food come from?’ Most food in America travels thousands of miles to get to your plate. To help yourself by eating healthier, more sustainable food, you could challenge yourself to eat as local as possible. Develop a relationship with a local farmer and learn how to cook seasonally.
If you are looking for a sense of peace and meditation while still being productive, you may want to investigate needlework. Needlework gets a bad reputation that it is only for older people; people think of grandmothers. Needlework is for anyone who enjoys making something with their hands, whether cross-stitch, crochet, knitting, tatting, or embroidery. Being able to work with textile arts is both productive and relaxing.
Everyone has a passion that they would love to see photographed. You might want to bring along a camera on your nature hikes, take photos of your children in the park, or find a way to get the perfect shot of your dinner. Adding photography as a complement to your passions could add to your lifestyle, or if you get good enough, you might be able to do freelancing or create a side business.
People what to hear what you have to offer, and if you are a jack-of-all-trades, you can create content that has excellent photos, great articles and remain relevant over time. The better your content, the more people will want to visit your blog. As a hobby, you could focus on making your content better with each post and seeing it evolve. This hobby comes with little to no start-up costs, as you can typically start a blog quickly and for free.
Whether it is Board Games, puzzles, or video games, you can get a group together to have dinner and a game night. Video games are often the most expensive option, but some of the more niche space board games could be expensive as well. Find some games that interest you or your group where you can play them several times and not get tired of them.
