Looking For a New Hobby? Here Are 8 You Can Pick up in 2022

Every year, you get the drive to try something new and acquire a new set of skills – and this is one of the main reasons why you should be open-minded when looking for new hobbies to pick up this year. 

It’s still very early and spending the rest of the year doing the same old activities can be boring. This is why you need new and fresh activities that will keep your interests fun and entertaining. 

If you’re looking to try something new, here are some hobby ideas you should try.


Gardening is one of the most enjoyable hobbies, which is why it’s the number one hobby in America. More people are growing beautiful plants in their homes. However, when it comes to the garden, there are many things that you can do. You can do light exercises, get fresh air, and grow gorgeous flowers and fresh food. Growing your food is beneficial to you and the environment too.


Are you looking for a way to get your creativity out? What better way to do so than writing? If you love the idea of writing but you prefer keeping it about your life, then you may want to start your own blog. Most bloggers start by sharing their daily life and getting their thoughts out there.


Compared to other hobbies, embroidery is a bit different. However, it has its benefits, especially if you’re very good at it. There are several businesses that offer embroidery services to make clothes and other attractive things. This is something that you can try from home if you’re ready to put in the time. But keep in mind that you may need to invest some money to get the right tools and machinery needed to learn.


Fishing is another relaxing hobby, but you can always try fly fishing to turn the heat up and chase after bigger catches. You can even take your boat to the more dangerous waters. Don’t forget, bimini tops protect your boat from sun rays and leave enough room to poke your fishing rod.

As long as you have the right licenses, you’re free to go fishing anywhere.

If you don’t want to go fishing, you might want to consider whale watching instead.


You’ve most likely heard that ‘reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.’ Reading is an incredibly inexpensive form of escapism that can help you learn about new cultures, discover new worlds, and explore new ideas. What’s more, it requires little or no electricity.


How often do you stop and appreciate what’s around you? Photography is one of the best ways to open your eyes to it. Rarely will you notice a river when walking past or see the park for what it is. However, once you pick up the camera, you will start truly seeing things as you try to identify the best and most appealing angles. Besides, if you’re good at it, photography can translate into a job opportunity.


Baking has become very popular over the last couple of years, especially due to the increasing number of worldwide baking shows. Plus, it’s not too late to join this fun activity. You can get started with baking sweet treats by using online recipes and YouTube videos.


If you’re a nature lover and you don’t mind sleeping under the sky with no Wi-Fi and air conditioning, then camping will suck you in. Camping is a perfect hobby for those who’re overwhelmed with city life. A spontaneous camping trip over the weekend will help you unplug and recharge.
