Well, don’t worry it is a great way of learning a new perspective and you’ll learn a lot by doing experiments with your camera.

For Example, If you like to travel or you have to travel because of work, that’s great. You can take out your Weapon (Camera) and start shooting (Clicking) anytime.

Seeing the world through the lens will amaze you to a great extent. You can also join a few photography groups/meetups to hone your skills.

Exciting, right?

How to Begin?

  1. Read about the basics: Knowing the basic theory of camera, angles, aperture, etc. is important
  2. Invest time: No hobby can be developed without investing time. Take an hour at least every day to devote.
  3. Participate in online competitions: There are multiple online competitions where you can post your clicks and get feedback to improve upon.
  4. Observe other photographs/photographers (style of photography/editing etc.)

And imagine you are in an interview and being asked your interest and hobbies list. Then you’ll have a lot to talk about your new-found creative perspective.

If you are really serious, you must be wondering that you don’t have a camera yet.

Well, don’t worry I’ve already handpicked 3 types of cameras just for you.

DSLR – Click a lot of pictures. Keep the good ones and delete the rest.

Are you finding a hobby which you can pursue at home or looking for indoor hobbies?

Well, Gardening could be an amazing choice for YOU.

You know, the amount of fresh air is reducing day by day and it is becoming extremely difficult to breathe clean air.

But by having plants in your house, your day can be more relaxing.

It can become a daily thing in no time and you’ll definitely start seeing an improved version of yourself within a few days.

If you search about the list of most popular hobbies or list of hobbies for resume, reading as a hobby will be omnipresent.

Reading can increase your knowledge, build your vocabulary, strengthen your brain, alleviates depression, or aid your sleep.

If you don’t find reading to be fun, you can start with comics, anime mangas, or maybe self-help books or you can even read books about how to become a millionaire. 

There are tons of choices out there.

Knowledge is power. 

Books can also be a helping hand in shaping your bright future.Following are a list of recommended books:

Are you looking for a stress buster or want to showcase your creativity with skills and interests on resume? 

Then dancing is one of the most suitable choices.

Dancing is also one hell of a confidence booster & it’ll increase your Kinesthetic Intelligence.

Plus is super fun to dance your heart out. I don’t know how to dance (your thought right now?) but don’t worry. You don’t have to be a pro overnight. 

Dance is not always about getting the moves right, or expressions right.It is merely about letting yourself free to the rhythm of the music and letting go of any other thoughts. 

But if you really want, you can start to learn to dance with Youtube videos.

Researchers define creative activities as “an adaptive and robust reaction to the ongoing epidemic” in the study “Meaning-Making Through Creativity During COVID-19,” published in Frontiers in Psychology in December 2020.


These hobbies can play a vital role in keeping your mental health upright. You need to occupy yourself with some activity wherein you can devote your time and energy.

There can be times when hobbies may feel like just some other distraction and you aren’t able to enjoy them. That is completely okay. We are all allowed to feel what we are going through. That is just as vital as keeping yourself invested in some hobbies.

GoodLives.in is always here to listen. We will map you to the right therapists who can understand your mental state. It’s never too late to acknowledge your emotions.

Can I just say what a aid to seek out somebody who really is aware of what theyre talking about on the internet. You positively know how to convey a problem to mild and make it important. More people have to learn this and understand this aspect of the story. I cant consider youre no more popular because you undoubtedly have the gift.
