Are you planning to start a new hobby? Or do you instead want to rekindle your passion in an existing one? Read my blog post for ideas on enjoyable activities, while boosting your personal growth.

I work from home and also run this blog. Giving due time to my self-care activities, I make sure that I enjoy and practice my hobbies regularly.

See a list of 18 ideas or suggestions for hobbies (choose one or a few):

1. Meditation

Mindfulness meditation and yoga are practices that bring diverse benefits. They’re relaxing and help you remain serene and focused.

2. Reading

Reading is a simple example. What you choose to read, however, is your preference. Would you go for science fiction, romance, horror, or perhaps self-help books?

3. Blogging

This is one of my top choices! Blogging is a wonderful way to express yourself while researching topics of interest, networking, and much more. You’ll always grow your knowledge and can also monetize your blog.
