7 new hobbies to think about to find your passion or reignite a passion for some ‘me time’ self care.
For Moms it’s not so easy sometimes to quit taking care of others and focus on ourselves. Much less take on a new hobby. But discovering a passion that you can practice in your ‘me time’ is such a huge plus to our stress levels! It’s beneficial to our health if we get out and about and do something different. Challenging ourselves mentally keeps our minds active and sharp. The old saying “use it lose it” is never more relevant as we enter adulthood and beyond. Learning something new isn’t just for the young, it’s important to never stop learning.
There are so many hobbies to try, the key is discovering the one that you enjoy. If you try many hobbies before you find the right one all the better, you’ll have had fun on your journey.
Learn to play a musical instrument
It may have been during childhood when you first picked up a musical instrument. As a child, often the desire to play comes from parents and teachers rather than yourself. It’s not too late to learn a musical instrument as an adult for new hobbies, and this is a popular time to start. You can get tuition on any musical instrument you can think of, research your local area for tutors. The internet has also become a valuable resource for music tuition, you could even learn to play the ukulele with easyukulelesongs.com .
Learn to dance
It’s possible to learn all styles of dance with local tuition usually widely available. If you thought ballet was for seven year old girls, think again! Many adult ballet classes are springing up throughout the country. Learn to waltz, salsa or lindy-hop, whatever takes your fancy!
Learn a new language
Perhaps as one of your new hobbies you would like to learn a little conversational Spanish for your next holiday or maybe brush up on the French you started at school. You have many options to choose from from online learning resources, podcasts, books and apps. You could consider joining your local adult learning language group. Another language that would be both interesting and useful to learn is BSL (British sign language). Courses are held at colleges throughout the country.
Become a photographer.
Photography is very popular for new hobbies, which many people have turned into a second career! You could develop a niche by focusing on photographing things that interest you such as wildlife, landscapes, and people.
Join a walking group
Getting out into the fresh air with like minded people will have many health and social benefits. You will discover areas that you never knew existed and see wildlife you have never seen before. Research your local area for walking groups.
Try a new sport
Taking part in sports both within a team and individually are extremely fulfilling as well as having great health benefits. Try something a little different such as rock climbing, kayaking, or basketball.
Learn a new craft
Arts and crafts are relaxing and fulfilling. If you would like to try something a little different have a look to see what your local college offers. Also, stores like Michaels and Hobby Lobby offer classes as well. Check their websites or in-store. You could also try pottery, acrylic painting or knitting.
There are so many more options to try, have fun!
