3 New Hobbies to Try in 2020
Are you thinking about the new year and wondering what kind of fun hobbies you can pick up in the New Year? If you know you want to try something new, but can’t seem to put your finger on what it is, check out these three new hobbies that might interest you.
Gardening is becoming very trendy again, especially gardening for the purpose of growing your own fruits and vegetables. It’s common knowledge that commercially produced foods are often smothered in chemicals and grown in nutritionally void soils, lowering the quality of the products. Many fruits and vegetables are also imported, which means we can have a wonderful variety of foods year around, but it also means that these foods are traveling great distances – so what methods are being used to keep them fresh? Growing your own fruits and vegetables is a great way to know exactly how they’re being treated, it’s also a handy way to save money each month and to limit your environmental impact because they’re not traveling great distances, nor are they being sold covered in plastics. Octopot Grow Systems can be a great way to get started for the novice gardener.
Of course I think blogging is a great hobby – you are reading my blog after all. There are plenty of ways I love blogging including the fact it’s really fun having your own platform, it can be a great way to meet other bloggers, and it can also turn into a bit of a side hustle. There’s room for more bloggers in every market (don’t let anyone tell you otherwise) and you can blog about almost any topic that exists, meaning it’s possible to focus on something that really matters to you. I created my blog to focus on lifestyle and travel, but you might want to do something around health, the sciences, parenting – whatever! I’m sure there are people that are interested in your favourite things too. The best thing about blogging is that it’s very inexpensive to get started and you never know where it will take you.
Volunteering is such a rewarding way to give back to your community or to make an impact somewhere else in the world. You can volunteer remotely, helping an organisation with their media or marketing things online. If you want to volunteer in your home town or city, you can look to help seasonally or regularly. Volunteering can be a great way to meet new people while making a difference with those who need it the most. You can volunteer with people, or behind the scenes, or even with animals. The choices are endless, but the most important thing is to find something you enjoy so you can make it a regular part of your life.
