As summer ends and the weather starts to get colder, we will be spending more time indoors. This means it’s the perfect time to pick up some new hobbies!
Whether you’re looking to get more active, create something beautiful or cook up something in the kitchen, here are some fun hobbies to try out this year to keep you busy!
Something about curling up by the fire with a ball of yarn screams fall. Although it may feel a bit daunting at first, once you’ve grasped the basics, you’ll be making chunky sweaters and warms scarves for all your friends and family by the time the cold weather rolls around.
Simply find a pattern, buy a crochet hook and choose from the vast selection of yarn online, and you’re ready to get started.
Soups and pies are fall staples, and knowing how to make them at home makes them even more special. Find a recipe online or pull out your grandma’s secret family recipe and start filling your home with the warm scent of fresh pie.
When it comes to fall cooking and baking, when in doubt, add cinnamon, pumpkin or both!
Having an active hobby is beneficial for maintaining a healthy lifestyle, especially when our hours of sunlight become more limited. Yoga is a great way to exercise the mind, body, and soul. Start by taking a class or watching videos online before coming up with your own sequences.
Keep in mind that the practice of yoga is much more about how you feel than how you look, so don’t put any pressure on being really flexible or strong.
With everything going on in the world in the past few years, now is a great time to take up journaling. You can select a journal prompt or write about your day and how you’re feeling.
Keep in mind there’s no pressure to write a certain amount or to write every day.
5. Making Playlists
Music can be a great companion to almost any activity, and knowing how to curate the perfect playlist is genuinely an art form. Whether you want to focus on a mood, a feeling, a season or a holiday, the options are endless when it comes to curating playlists.
Once you’ve finished, they’re great to share with your friends!
6. Learn an Instrument
If you have a lot of extra time on your hands this fall, it may be time to pick up that dusty guitar you’ve meant to learn for years! With so much information online, you don’t even need to take lessons to learn the basics of almost any instrument.
Start slowly by picking one easy song to learn and dedicate some time to practicing every day to grow your repertoire slowly.
Puzzling can be a really relaxing way to spend some time and is strangely addictive. There are so many different sizes and designs out there, so you’re sure to find one that you can’t wait to see come together.
If you can, set up your puzzle station on a table that you don’t often use to avoid having to move your puzzle around.
