Discover Your New Hobby

By  | 

Whether you need something to keep you busy, or simply want to find your next passion in life, it takes 21 days to create a habit, which means it takes 21 days to learn a new hobby. Discover your love for photography, writing, or even working out, or discover hobbies that you never knew existed. There are certain steps you can take that will make picking up a new hobby, that much easier. For example, goal setting is very important and is what will keep you motivated while trying to learn your new hobby. Set weekly, monthly, or even yearly goals, and give yourself a prize whenever you achieve the goals; getting your nails done, eating a cheat meal, or buying clothes online. Rewarding yourself for reaching your goals, is a unique way to keep reaching and exceeding your goals. Setting goals might also allow you to learn your new hobby faster, and quicker.

While you’re setting your goals, try to thin about what are some reasons that you might quit or want to give up your new hobby. If you make a list of certain challenges you may face, or are aware of what will make you quit, you will be prepared to conquer these negative thoughts. Giving up is a part of starting a new hobby, so be prepared for negative encounters, and replace it with positivity. If you aren’t picking up your new hobby as fast as you would like, you will have a negative voice in the back of your head telling you, that you aren’t good enough. It is essential that you ignore it, and push through it. Good things take time, and in order to be a master of your craft, you have to mess up. Messing up is a part of the process and it shows you how hard work can truly pay off.

Another essential part of learning a new skill set, it focusing on one part at a time, and breaking it up. Break your skill sets into different days, and plan ahead. Know your plan, and break up each day and again, make goals that you want to reach. Breaking up your schedule with small goals that you want to reach every day, will allow you to be more successful, and reach your success faster. Breaking it up each day, also goes back to planning. Create a plan in which you can reach your success, and create goals that might be tough for you to reach.

If you are struggling to find a hobby, go back to your passions. What did you love doing when you were a kid? What gave you motivation to succeed and what gave you pure happiness? Once you’ve determined and gone back to your roots, a million ideas will come flooding in. Discover new passions, while rediscovering your old ones. Having hobbies is important to keep your mind cleansed, and find happiness in the little things in life again.
