10 hobbies to try in 2021

After a tumultuous 2020, no one quite knows what to expect in the new year. However, make it a point to spend more time engaging in activities that refresh and energize you, regardless of what lies ahead. Here are 10 hobbies that might pique your interest.

  • Study photo editing– Whether you take pictures with a digital camera or your smartphone, learn how to use a photo editing program to enhance your digital memories.
  • Foster an animal– Many shelters will often utilize temporary foster homes when they reach max capacity. Ask your local shelter about fostering or other ways to volunteer.
  • Discover Painting– Sign up for online class or follow along with classic Bob Ross painting episodes on YouTube.
  • Tackle a new language– Apps like Duolingo allow you to learn a variety of languages at your own pace.
  • Try new workout methods– If you usually prefer CrossFit or HIIT workouts, switch it up with an online yoga class. If you gravitate toward barre or Pilates, kickboxing or strength training might be good alternatives.
  • Expand your culinary skills– If you’re a rookie in the kitchen start with easy-to-follow recipes. If you’re already an experienced cook, experiment with making complex dishes or creating recipes of your own.
  • Explore the outdoors-Check out local nature centers or travel to state parks to hike, birdwatch, bike or simply enjoy the scenery. Look for new areas around you to explore as well.
  • Play a musical instrument– Sign up for lessons with an instructor or follow online tutorials to start playing the piano, guitar, ukulele, or any other instrument that inspires you.
  • Take up woodworking– Decide what type of project you want to build, then research the necessary tools to get started. Connect with experienced woodworkers in your area or follow online tutorials to start creating.
  • Join a book club– Everyone can benefit from spending more time reading, so give yourself the extra push by joining a book club in a genre that interests you.
