I need a hobby!

This is a common phrase you hear when somebody has a lot of extra time on their hands. Particularly when a person finds themselves doing menial things that don't mean a whole lot.

Well, if you have extra time on your hands and you are looking for a rewarding and enriching way to spend in then a hobby is actually a perfect thing to find!

Here I have a whole lot of great suggestions for you.

I also have a long list of hobbies right here


What kind of Hobby would be good for you?

A hobby is a personal thing. Everybody has likes and dislikes. And you have to give some thought to yourself when exploring what hobby to pursue. Are you a physically active person? Are you a quiet and introverted person? Do you like collecting things? Are you detail oriented? Are you an indoor or an outdoor kind of person?

All of these questions play a factor in what kind of hobby might be right for you. And the beauty of it is that there is a hobby that is right for you!

And another thing to consider is that you can have more than one hobby. I have several.

Collecting things as a hobby

This is one of my favorite things to do. And it can be literally anything you like or want from automobiles to stamps! I collect stamps and it is a particular passion of mine. When I was a teenager I started stamp collecting. And then for many of my adult years I didn't do it. I returned to it now, later in life and I am so glad that I did. If you are interested in this hobby I have lots and lots of tutorials and articles about it right here: All About Stamp Collecting



Other Collecting hobbies:

  • Coins - This can be expensive if you want to collect silver dollars or gold coins. But you can get started very easily and inexpensively by collecting pennies. Go through your change jar! You might be surprised by what you find.
  • Sports Cards - I used to collect cards when I was a kid. Pretty much all baseball cards. But nowadays you have lots of options. There are all kinds of cards you can collect including gaming cards.
  • Rocks and minerals, bottles, beer cans, Books, snowglobes, matchboxes, business cards, autographs and so much more!

Making Things as a Hobby

I have a whole lot of different pursuits when it comes to making things. This includes making cosplay armor and weapons and even making telescopes! Yup! I make telescopes. If you want something a little quieter and requiring less resources and materials you might want to consider making plastic models. The thing about plastic models is that there are all kinds of models so it can also be about something you are interested in as a subject like rare cars, military vehicles or even super heroes.

If you think plastic model making is a hobby you might like to do I have a whole section on it. I have at least a dozen different types of military models including tanks, aircraft, and more. Plastic Models





The realm of making this is very large! There are literally millions of things you can make as a hobby. Let me give you a few ideas.

How about carpentry? And you can even specialize when it comes to this hobby. For example you can specialize in making grandfather clocks! Or how about making guitars? Think about this "specialization" when it comes to any hobby where you make things. There is a beautiful double layer to it. You learn the skill of a craft and you can use that skill to pursue a specific interest.

One more big thing when it comes to making things. How about blacksmithing? I am an amateur blacksmith. And I love it. It is a great hands-on hobby. And it fits perfectly into to the idea of duality when making things. I like blacksmithing and I like bladed weapons. So, as a blacksmith I make knives and swords. To learn more about blacksmithing check out my section of the website here.

The Sciences as a Hobby

Investigating, experimenting and exploring are all part of the hobbies within the sciences. You can have a lot of fun with these kinds of hobbies and you can learn a lot about the world and even the universe we live in!

Astronomy as a hobby - This is a wonderful hobby. You pursue it at night of course! But there are also lots of things you can do with this hobby during the day including research, reading maps and books and using planetarium software. This is one of my favorite hobbies. And I have a whole lot of wonderful stuff when it comes to the hobby of astronomy including making telescopes. I have even written a book on the subject of star-gazing. If you are interesting in astronomy, star-gazing and or telescope making check out this section of my website: Telescopes and astronomy.
