Pick up a new hobby

Update : 31 Aug 2022, 14:04

Autumn is relaxing, but can also seem dull at times. Having too much free time can leave you bored if you don't use it productively. So, try out a new hobby to have fun and feel fulfilled over the season. Whether it is to improve your skill sets, mindset and attitude, or mental and physical health, having a hobby can actually help with that!

Here are five hobbies you could give a try:


It is a really fun pastime. Not only can it be very calming, but having to take care of plants also teaches responsibility. You can plant a flowerbed, a vegetable garden, or an herb garden. If you don't have enough room or time for a garden of your own, look for a nearby community garden.


Painting is a wonderful hobby and it can be used as a form of expression. If you want to go freehand, grab a painting kit with everything you need to get started.

Learn an instrument

Learning how to play the guitar, ukulele, or piano is probably the most generic hobby there is. There’s nothing wrong with that because those instruments can be easily learnt and accessible. And when mastered, one can really impress with their skills.

Jewelry Making

Another hobby that could be turned into a successful business is jewelry making. It’s both therapeutic and a great learning experience of understanding how the tools and materials are used. You can make your jewelry and forget about the dread of not finding the jewelry you’ve always wanted.

Coding and programming

Coding opens one to a world of possibilities, from creating your own websites with nifty features to altering and playing around with video games features. There are many free online courses and websites available that can teach you the basics of coding.

Of course, there are different types of programming languages such as Python and Java, but beginners are advised to start with Python as it is simpler to understand.


It is one of the most rewarding hobbies and it’s quite affordable, too.  Once you know how to sew pieces of clothing from fabric, you will have the freedom to customize your outfits. You can also choose the best  fabric for your clothing.
