LIFESTYLE: Awesome hobbies to learn this 2019

January 14, 2019 UDOU Team

Make the most out of your time this year. Try out these awesome hobbies to learn this 2019!

 

Binge watching a series is fun and laying in bed all day is amazing. I’m not going to be a hypocrite and tell you otherwise. But every now and then don’t you ever think “Hey, I want to chill out with a purpose” or “Oh my gray matter’s drying up. I want to learn something new”? Yes? You think that too? Great! Then try these interesting hobbies and hopefully you’ll get the knack of it throughout the year.

 

Funny

 

 

Calligraphy

Learn the art of writing beautifully. Calligraphy is an ancient form of art that spread all over the world. It can be divided into different types depending on countries (e.g. Arabic, Western, Chinese, etc.). The most common type is Western calligraphy since the alphabet is being used for this one. Also, there are specific writing tools used when performing the art and the traditional tools are called dip pens.

 

Learning the skill is quite relaxing and it will broaden your creativity. Aside from those, it is also practical because once you’ve mastered it, you get to write your own invitations so no need to pay for someone else to do it. You can even turn it into a business! There is really no loss in learning calligraphy so try it now.

 

 

Ukulele

Why is it cool to learn how to play the ukulele? Why is it not cool? It only has 4 strings, you can play 55 songs with the same 4 chords, and you can “somewhere over the rainbow” your sad days away. Music has always been a huge part of everyone’s life and being able to create it is a blessing. So what the heck are you waiting for? Grab a ukulele and live in zen for the rest of your days.

 

Wine Tasting

Unleash the tita in you and get into wine tasting. If you’re going to get drunk might as learn while doing it, right? Just kidding. It’s really nice to learn about something that you thoroughly enjoy ingesting. Also, 9/10 it’s cute to be cultured.

 

 

Surfing

Akaw! Get your surfboards nicely waxed, be one with the wave, and get amped by the thrill dudes. Surfing is one of the most exciting water sports there. It involves getting on a surfboard riding waves until you get to the shore. It is also very difficult to get a hang of but once you start gliding with the waves with steady legs, it’s definitely going to be worth it. Get a tan and hang loose bros!

 

 

Volunteering

I believe that volunteering is a great hobby to develop. Why? Well, aside from having to be productive with your time, you get to help out other people too? Volunteering can be done in different ways, you can go to institutions, go on missions, or conduct a yard sale for a cause. It’s really not that difficult and once you’ve gotten the hang of it, it’ll give you a better sense of purpose. I think that there is no better hobby than something that involves giving back to the community. So go on ahead and give it a go.

 

Our hobbies say so much about ourselves as individuals. Make sure that whatever you do makes you happy and it represents you in the best way possible.
