Let’s talk about all the things we like to do when we’re NOT running. I, for one, have a lot of non-fitness related hobbies. Too many, if you ask me.
I’ve always been someone with tons of hobbies. As a kid/teenager, I wanted to try EVERYTHING (and I also tend to not be a quitter, so instead of dropping one hobby for another, I’d usually just pile them on.)
Boredom? What dis?
I probably have about 3-4 competing interests at any given time and often can’t decide which should take priority at that particular moment. Sometimes I will start one thing, only to switch over to another half and hour later.
In no particular order, here’s what I love to do in my free time:
Blogging – surprise! If you’ve been around for a while, you know that I’ve been blogging for a long time and I am not intending to quit any time soon.
Traveling – I love to travel, even though I don’t always get to travel as much as I want. (Who does?) I still count it as a hobby, because I do try to get out exploring whenever I can.
Reading – I’ve been that kid that always had a book attached to their hands. I went through phases where I didn’t read as much as I wanted to, but I am happy to say that I’ve established a pretty solid reading habit in recent years.
Knitting/crocheting – I learned to knit/crochet when I was young and I am so happy about it. It’s such an awesome activity to relax and wind down.
Crafting/Card-making – I’ve always loved making stuff with my hand and I’ve been making cards (for all occasions) for years and years. You might know that I did turn my hobby into a little side hustle a few years ago (but it really is just a hobby, I don’t rely on that income by any means).
Baking/Cooking – Is there anything more satisfying than creating something delicious to eat?
I am sure I could come up with more things I like to do, but those are the things I’d consider my main hobbies. So many things to do, so little time. Am I right?
What are your favorite non-running hobbies?
