How to Find a New Hobby (as an adult)

Recently, someone asked me what I do for fun, and, honestly, I was at a loss for words. In the current stage that I’m in, so much of my life revolves around being a mother, a wife, and a content creator. While I do enjoy many aspects of those things, none of them are necessarily things that I do for me. So much of my day to day activities are centered around my husband, my kids, and my work.

As I thought long and hard about the things that I do (or don’t do) for fun, I realized that I’m now at a point where it’s time to rediscover myself and the activities that I genuinely enjoy. It’s time that I find some things that I love to do with no strings attached.

If you’re like me and you’ve reached a point where you are in need of a few hobbies, here are 3 tips that might help you figure out where to start to find a new hobby as an adult:

  1.  Consider all the things you’ve always wanted to try: Are there things that have always interested you that you’ve never had a chance to do because of limited time or resources? Now might be the time where you’re able to finally dive in and see it some of those may be a good fit.

  2. Step out of your comfort zone: I know that I can be reluctant to try certain things out of fear that I won’t be good at them or worry about doing them alone, but sometimes great things come out of situations that are a little but uncomfortable at first. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and put yourself out there.

  3. Take advantage of low risk opportunities: Often I’ve been reluctant to try new things because of the investment associated with them, but if you look, you can likely find low risk opportunities to try our new things without purchasing a ton of equipment or committing to something long term. Take advantage!

In my latest weekly vlog, I’m sharing all about what self-care looks like for me right now in this season of solo-parenting. I’m having to be intentional about how I spend the time that I do have, and I thought it would be really cool to find a hobby that I enjoyed that also helped keep me active.

When I took Harper to her first tennis lesson, I was inspired by her willingness to put herself out there and try a sport that she had never done before, and I also thought about how fun it could be one day to play together if we both stick to it. I found a 4 week, no equipment required group tennis lesson for beginners and the rest was history! Be sure to check out the vlog to hear more about my first lesson.
