Easy Hobbies to Pick Up at Home

Sometimes, a hobby can feel like one more thing you don’t have time for. But there are countless benefits of having a hobby, like helping you relax, providing a sense of accomplishment and generally improving your sense of wellbeing. Starting a new hobby doesn’t have to be hard or intimidating, especially at a place like Arden, where you have access to amenities and friendly neighbors that can help you get started. Here are just a few beginner-friendly hobbies that are easy to pick up at home.

Get Crafty

Crafting is usually the first thing that comes to mind when you think of hobbies. Knitting, crocheting, sewing and cross stitching require very little supplies and there are tons of YouTube videos showing you how to get started. Scrapbooking is another fun one, and a great way to preserve memories. Or, there’s always the more traditional option of drawing and painting.

Play Some Tunes

If you have a guitar, keyboard, harmonica or any other instrument gathering dust in the house, there’s no better time than now to start learning to use it. Even if you don’t have an instrument lying around, there’s still other ways you can enjoy music. You could play a virtual piano, or spend some time curating playlists on Spotify to DJ during dinner.

Become a Chef

Speaking of dinner, who doesn’t love good food? Baking bread, cookies, muffins and cakes is a sure-fire way to sweeten up the day. But why not try to perfect some more exotic recipes? Indian curries, Asian dumplings, Mexican street tacos – whatever your favorite restaurant food is, try making it at home!

Sweat it Out

There’s a whole host of reasons why daily exercise is good for your physical and mental health, so try to find something you really love to do. It could be a traditional workout, or something different. Maybe you love to dance, swim laps or do kickboxing. Hiking or running along Arden’s 20 miles of trails does double-duty by allowing you to get some fresh air while you exercise.

Flex Your Green Thumb

At Arden, a farm-to-table lifestyle is part of the community, with a 5-acre working farm right in the neighborhood. But if the regular shares of produce from the farm aren’t enough, you can always start your own garden to enjoy home-grown produce. A windowsill herb garden is a great place to start, or you could have containers of veggies and flowers on the porch.

Arden residents enjoy a healthy living lifestyle, with amenities and nature right outside their door, so it’s easy to do what they love most. To learn more about this new home community in Palm Beach County, Florida, join our Interest List or take a look at our available quick move-in homes.
