10 Productive Hobbies

Looking for a new hobby to try out, but also want it to benefit you in the future? Here I have listed 10 hobbies that are not only fun but will also help you in the long run. Hope you like it.




1. Chess


Chess is an amazing hobby to cultivate, it helps you develop analytic, strategic and predictive thinking, which you can apply to real life situations, not just the game. These skills are really valuable in the long run. So get a partner and start playing. Don't worry if you aren't able to find a partner to play with, you can always play chess in any device. 





2. Sports


A very good alternative to going to gym. This way you don't need worry about not exercising , though this applies only for those sports which includes physical activities like football, badminton etc. You are guaranteed to have fun if you are playing with friends, its like killing two birds in one stone, bonding with friends and also physical exercise.






3. Reading or Writing


Reading improves your vocabulary along with broadening your knowledge too. You can pick any decent book and start reading. If reading books is not your thing, you can read newspapers or magazines. Newspaper reading is a very good habit as it keeps you updated with the world affairs. If reading itself is not your thing, no worries you can try your hand at writing. It can be anything you want write about, ranging from stories to articles to even blogs. You have various platforms online where you can showcase your talent in writing. 




4. Art and Craft


You can try sketching something or someone, or maybe even draw a portrait. You may think how will this benefit me, to draw something you need to concentrate and focus on even the tiniest of tiniest details, it teaches you not to overlook anything and pay equal attention to all. Furthermore it improves creativity. You can go a step further and try painting what you drew, you might be pleasantly surprised with the outcomes. You could try making something of scrap too, if art is not your thing, or maybe even try both. 





5. Scrapbooking


This is one hobby that is sure to make to smile in the future. When you are feeling low you can always look through your old scrapbooks and you will automatically feel much better. Its like engraving your pleasant memories in a book for future reference. Maybe even show it to your kids in the future. You can use all of your artistic talents in this hobby to create a beautiful masterpiece, stick photos and write. 





6. Running


This is a great way to exercise, it helps you stay in shape.  You can always listen to music while running or maybe even put on a fitness tracker. It also helps release pent up frustration. You could even run with a companion, though it might become more of a jog. Running is not advisable for people with knee issues. 





7. Gardening


This is one hobby where you might have to expend a lot of efforts, though the results are totally worth it. Let me warn you , you better be ready to get down and dirty, you can't expect to come clean after a session of gardening, and if you do , then there is something definitely wrong. You can turn any barren backyard into a beautiful garden by employing the right techniques.The pleasure you get when you see the fruit of your hard work is priceless.  






8. Photography


You don't need to own a DSLR to become a good photographer, even  a decent camera will do, you just need to be aware of your surroundings. Amazing photographs don't necessarily come from amazing things ,it's all about timing and precision. It teaches how to find beauty even in unexpectedly normal things. They do say, a picture is worth thousand words.






9. Collecting Stuff


This another hobby which will surely make you smile in the future. You can collect anything you like ranging from coins to stamps to even cd's. You may think that getting your hands on stuff is the tough part, but actually how you maintain them throughout the years is what actually matters. You can't call a pile of shells lying around as your prized possession, it's all about storing them efficiently and in such a way that they survive the tide of time, like maybe stick them in a book and keep the book safe. This hobby also teaches you management skills.






10. Learn something New


Learning something new like a new language or how to play an instrument is a skill that will definitely come in handy one day. For instance you learn French out of interest and suddenly you are required to communicate with french clients, wouldn't this skill be really helpful. You may never know when or where you may need your newly acquired skill. Knowledge of any form is never a waste of time.
