Take some time out of your busy schedule to find a hobby you enjoy! While it may not be easy to find free time, it will so be worth it once you find something you are passionate about. Not only are hobbies a way to spend your free time, they also help you become a more well-rounded individual!

1. Baking.

This is a very rewarding and inexpensive hobby. You can share your finished product with family, friends, and coworkers. Who doesn't love to be surprised with homemade cupcakes or cookies every once in awhile?

2. Gardening.

This is a great way to grow some of your favorite herbs or vegetables and save yourself a trip to the grocery store!

3. Photography.

This one is easy if you carry your phone with you everywhere but if you really enjoy it, it's worth investing in and getting a nice camera! You can eventually decorate your home with your own photos!

4. Yoga.

Yoga has endless health benefits and will help you relax in the midst of a busy day.

5. Knitting/crocheting.

Both knitting and crocheting are very relaxing activities. Once you are done knitting a hat, scarf, blanket, etc. you can gift it, sell it, or keep it for yourself! This hobby is perfect for the fall or winter time.

6. Playing an instrument.

Teach yourself to play an instrument like the ukulele, guitar, drums, or piano! This will definitely help you clear your mind when you get overwhelmed.

7. Blogging.

Do you want to connect with new people, improve writing skills, maybe get paid? Then blogging is a perfect hobby for you!

8. Jewelry-making.

You can sell your jewelry on Etsy or make gifts for friends and family. This is another hobby that can be fairly inexpensive!

9. Reading.

There is nothing more relaxing than getting lost in a good book. Take a break from your required reading and read for leisure!

10. Golfing.

This hobby is a great way to get your exercise in while bonding with people and making friendships. The learning process takes patience but you can start off just practicing at a driving range.

11. Listen to podcasts.

Listening to podcasts takes very little energy and is entertaining. You can listen to podcasts anywhere (on the beach, in the car, at home) and you can learn a lot from them, too!

Try out a few different hobbies and decide which fits you. Many hobbies allow you to enjoy your free time and still feel productive.
