5 Fun Hobbies Literally Anyone Can Pick Up

In Sixth grade, I started playing Violin. I see this decision as the most important of my life. I found so much meaning through music. From hiding in a section to trying out for solos, my journey to become a better violinist defined many of my teenage life choices. I could write for hours about how much violin (and now a cappella) mean to me, but this is about you.

That's right, you! There are infinite reasons for why you lack a strong hobby, and that is nothing to be ashamed of. I strongly believe that life is more colorful when you have an activity that you enjoy. Here are 5 Hobbies (out of a billion) that are easy to start.

1. Playing the Ukulele

Ukulele is a simple instrument that takes very little time to pick up. It has four strings and most chords don't require a ton of dexterity. Amazon has many ukuleles under $50 dollars, and there are many websites with tabs arranged by difficulty, like UkuTabs.com. Before you know it, you'll be singing along or accompanying your friends.

2. Watercolor Painting

I picked Watercolor Painting because so many of my friends enjoy it! Looks like Amazon is here to save the day again: you can get a set of 36 colors and 10 brushes for $13.49 today.

3. Reading Books

Even though Reading can seem like an impossible task with the constant buzzing of social media, books deepen our understanding of ourselves, the people around us, and the world. Find a genre or author you enjoy, or a reading list from someone you admire. If you need an extra push, try book clubs! All it takes is 10 minutes a day (and a hot cup of tea.)

4. Yoga

Yoga with Adrienne is my favorite channel for beginners curious about the benefits of yoga. There was a time when I scoffed at the idea of "finding my center." Now, Yoga is my go-to way of de-stressing.

5. Healthy Baking

Finding healthy alternatives for your favorite desserts is super rewarding. This might sound slightly insane, but I now crave these two ingredient cookies instead of some of my favorite desserts (créme brûlée, macaroons, red velvet cupcakes...the list goes on) because I don't feel guilty after I eat them. If you're not into bananas, there are TONS of healthy dessert recipes out there for you to try.

These are just 5 hobbies, but the possibilities are truly endless.

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
