Sorry, Netflix and chill night, we have better things to do!

Having a hobby is a way to bring more excitement and joy in your life, while at the same time working on making yourself more social and calmer. Hobbies are also crucial for your further development, as they help you increase confidence and self-esteem. It’s “me” time, and you know that you’ll be an even better person if you are feeling satisfied. Additionally, it can be a challenging experience, which will help you become more patient while creating a perfect escape from your every day worries. The question is not, “Should I have a hobby?” Instead, it’s what you should choose as a hobby. Here are some ideas.

The rise of Pinterest, YouTube, and Etsy popularized the art of neatly-wrapped gifts. Working with your hands is an excellent, mindful exercise, and gift wrapping is becoming an increasingly popular skill. It’s actually far more challenging and demanding than it looks. If you are thrilled about the idea, yet you still want to use your hands to create something, knitting is one of the most relaxing hobbies, not to mention that you can create unique pieces for yourself and your loved ones.

Taking pottery classes became cool back in the 80s, thanks to the movie Ghost. Even celebrities are proud to show off their achievements from pottery classes, but according to the latest trends, woodwork is the new pottery. Creating pieces from wood will make your creative juices flow even harder, and you can make beautiful gifts and accessories for your home and family. Show off your work on Instagram; maybe you’ll become the new star and start selling the pieces by the end of the year!

Embroidery classes are ideal for people who want to make this world a bit prettier. Monograms, motifs, and individual details will give your home and your wardrobe a personalized makeover, which is one of the biggest trends of the new decade. It also encourages you to make adjustments, instead of buying new clothing, so it will save you money and help the planet.

Making soaps might be our favorite hobby. The whole process is exciting and even funny, yet you will be more than proud to show off your work to your friends and their followers on social media. Hermes is selling luxury handmade soaps, that’s how popular they are. It goes beyond that: the same classes can teach you how to make organic makeup, face masks, and perfumes. It’s an ideal class that might make you an entrepreneur, plus you’ll always know what’s in your soap/makeup.

Finally, one hobby that is taking over the world is gardening. Creating even the smallest home garden with veggies, fruits and herbs, while using natural, toxin-free products to maintain your piece of greenery will make your cooking even better. Fresh ingredients will also make you want to cook more, so gardening can give you another healthy and useful hobby. Just remember that you don’t have to choose the right hobby at this moment. You can try out various classes to find the ones which are the most soothing for your lifestyle.
