Finding a right hobby

Finding a Finding a right hobby  can be tough, but it’s important to find something that suits your personality, interests, and lifestyle. Hobbies can help increase relaxation, provide enjoyment, and even improve real life skills (think critical thinking, problem solving, and teamwork) that will be useful in the workplace.

Hobbies can be anything from painting miniatures to learning a second language, or even playing chess and other board games. Some people like to collect stamps or coins, while others enjoy gardening or throwing clay on a pottery wheel. Some hobbies can be done in short bursts, like during lunch breaks at work or while waiting for an appointment, while others require more lengthy time commitments on the weekends or evenings.

Another consideration is how much space you have for storage, as many hobbies can come with a lot of materials that will need to be tucked away in a garage or basement. Lastly, you’ll want to think about how much money you’re willing to invest in your hobby. Some hobbies are inexpensive, while others can quickly start to feel like a second job and take away from the enjoyment of the activity.

One way to help narrow down your options is to think about the things you enjoyed doing as a kid. If you used to love drawing pictures or putting together model kits, for example, it might be time to pick up the pencil again, says Weiler. Other activities that have been put on the back burner since becoming an adult, like joining a softball league or coaching neighborhood kids, might also be worth revisiting.
