We all make resolutions at new year and on our birthdays and mostly these resolutions are to do with improvements in many aspects. Why not make a resolution to take up a new hobby? Taking up a new hobby will have many benefits like becoming more active, doing something worthy and also meeting new people. Here is a list of new hobbies that you could try:
New and Good Hobbies To Take Up
1. Geo-caching: If you are into technology and always wanted to hunt for treasure then this is the one for you. Geo-caching is a hunt for treasure by playing hide and seek. Some of the participants hide capsules of treasures and others have to find them. The use of GPS devices and some clues will help you take up the hunt. You can also add clues of your own.
2. Knitting: This is something that is both a hobby and also as a means of fulfilling a need. Taking up knitting may seem old fashioned but it is also immensely satisfying and very easy to do once you learn the basics.
3. Blogging: This seems to be an activity that has been taken up by people from all occupations and this is so because it is so easy and offers so much fun. It is a great way to pen down thoughts and share with an online community. The give and take that you get from your readers will make it worth it.
4. Gardening: Do something that will create something useful, be outdoors and be happy; these are some of the benefits of gardening. However, these are some of the main reasons people take up gardening as a hobby.
5. Photography: The only hobby where you can shoot and people will stand for you willingly, there will be no bloodshed and you will not be charged with a crime. Jokes apart, photography today has become more accessible to people with good cameras being available at economic prices. This hobby also provides the additional benefit of getting you out of home and about.
6. Lego Building: Take a step back into a childhood activity that absorbed you and indulge yourself once again. This is a great hobby to take up and it will soon have you looking for and buying logo sets for you to but things together. And if you can find a group that shares your interests, then you can trade sets once you are done with yours.
7. Book Club: For a book lover, reading books and then talking about the books they have read, with others who have read it too can be the very idea of heaven. Joining a book club will allow you to just that and being part of a book club can also open doors to a new genre of books too.
8. Collecting: This can be related to anything ranging from the costliest antiques to not so costly mundane things. Collectors tend to be pretty single minded about the item they are collecting and this type of passion is something that we all look for in a hobby.
9. Instrument: If you like music, then we are sure one of your long term dreams would have been to play an instrument. Why not take up playing an instrument that you always wanted to, as a hobby? If you feel that buying the instrument is too expensive, then you can always look around for a secondhand deal.
10. Sports: If you are one of those who is looking to become fitter or lose weight, then a hobby like taking up a sport can be a good idea. This can be something of a solo exercise or you can join a group. This way you will be able to enjoy the sport even more and you will also find persisting at it will become easier.
