What’s most important is that you’re putting some of your other skills to use and are having fun while doing it. Be sure to commit to making time for yourself and doing what you love so that you can experience more joy in your life.

Playing Sports

One hobby to consider allowing to fill your free time is to take up playing sports. Doing so is good for your mind and body, so it’s a win-win situation for you.

For example, you may consider taking up golf and purchasing custom golf clubs so you can improve your game and stay feeling excited and motivated about your chosen sport.

Golf is a wonderfully inclusive and sociable hobby as you can either play solo on your day off, or with a group of friends, family, or even coworkers. 


There are a lot of important events and milestones you’re going to experience throughout your lifetime. Think of how nice it’ll be to be able to capture these special moments on camera.

Therefore, consider taking up photography as a hobby and learning how to take photos the right way. You likely take a bunch of photos wherever you go anyway, so you may as well turn it into a hobby.

Take pictures of your kids as they grow up or head out and capture nature in its raw form, for example.

Cooking & Baking

Another hobby to consider doing in your free time is to learn how to cook and bake. It’s a very mindful activity that can teach you patience and how to follow directions to the mark.

It’s not only a useful skill to have, but it can also be a very pleasurable way to spend your time. Use this as an opportunity to explore different recipes and figure out some favorite meals that you can cook for yourself going forward. 


You may also want to add starting a blog to your hobby to-do list. Writing and blogging is a great use of your free time and it’ll help keep your communication skills sharp.

Choose a topic you feel passionate about, and one that your believe readership will be interested in learning more about. Take time to respond to comments you receive on your posts, and build a community of followers who you can interact with regularly.


The hardest part about having a hobby is finding ones that you deem enjoyable and worth sticking at. These have been a few suggestions to consider in your search for productive ways to spend your free time.

Be open to trying numerous different options so that you can learn more about yourself and where your strengths lay.
