Do you have a hobby? If no, then why not start one now? If you do have one, then are you still enjoying it as much as you did when you first started it? Hobbies bring you so many benefits, but make sure to choose the right one/s…

I’m a blogger, sharing what I’ve learnt and personally experienced through life tips, so starting a hobby is an inevitable topic for me to write on! In this blog post, I’m giving 12 tips to guide you in your quest for either starting a new hobby or reviewing the validity of your present one (if you’ve put it aside, lately):

1. Your interests

Make a list of your interests. Consider all of them… Which one/s could you turn into a hobby?

2. Your childhood

Ask yourself what you enjoyed as a child and couldn’t do at that time. Find things that retain your interest, and could bring intrinsic benefits and well-being!

3. You can afford

Hobbies may cost you money, so forecast how much you’re willing to invest and set a reasonable budget on a long term basis.

4. Keep fit

While practicing a hobby, you may also have by-products of other benefits! So play a sport, exercise, take walks, do things that keep you physically fit.

5. Look good

A new hobby could emerge from your glamorous side. Could you go for modeling, start an Instagram account for fashion, or do you prefer to learn how to do your own facial and manicure?

6. You relax

Your hobby could induce relaxation and bring you serenity… Practice yoga, mindful meditation, go to painting, arts or photography classes. If you enjoy such hobbies, you can also benefit from replenishing yourself!

7. Make friends

Joining a new weekend class could be a means to do and learn things that you enjoy while making new friends at the same time! This could further help in networking for multiple purposes.

8. Personal development

You set goals for career/business needs and find ways to get better in your field, right? Would you like to further develop your skills? Joining courses on subjects that you enjoy a lot, could do much to further boost your achievements while becoming a hobby at the same time!

9. Volunteer

Joining your church (or other religious institutions), a non-governmental organization, or helping out in your local community is a wonderful way to serve others, make friends and use your spare time positively.

10. Be eco-friendly

While you plan on starting your new hobby, do ensure that no damage is done to the environment. For example, fishing may be what you want to do, but be aware that our natural resources are so scarce, that we should protect them!

11. Have a routine

Once you’re ready to start your new loved hobby, be sure to plan for it properly. If you want long term benefits, incorporate your new activity into your daily/weekly to-do list, and track your progress, being accountable.

  1. I have several hobbies and I always tell people they should have at least one, it’s very relaxing, reduces stress, can be a great way to meet fantastic people and it’s fun! My newest hobby is photography, but also includes woodworking, country cottage decor and simply feeding the birds, though that one may soon be illegal here. Great post, enjoyed it much!

  3. This is such a great post! It has certainly encouraged me to think of the hobbies I used to love that I don’t do anymore. Right now, the only one I am doing is knitting which I really love because it relaxes me. I will definitely work on the others I’ve neglected for too long too. Thank you for sharing.

  4. Great post, Sharvina! All the twelve points are really awesome and all are interlinked. I think if we really invest time, enthusiasm and interest each of us can have an enriching life simply religiously enjoying their hobby. Be it painting or speaking or sports.

  5. Bonjour ou bonsoir mon amie

    La mélodie du cœur
    Celle que l’on entend qu’une fois et qui nous transporte si loin
    Au delà des nuages et au delà des paysages

    La mélodie du cœur ne s’invente pas elle s’écoute
    Elle est si belle
    La mélodie du cœur
    Elle nous transporte, fait pousser des ailes d’anges dans le dos
    Qu’elle te transporte au paradis là ou tout est éternel
    Que ce weekend à venir soit une explosion de bonheur avec tes proches
    Bonne journée ou belle soirée
    gros bisous
