Developing A New Hobby

If you happen to have a lot of time on your hands and are tired of the same old routine (such as watching television, walking the dog, sitting around at home with a cup of coffee or some other thing), here are a couple of things you should consider as a new hobby. After all, you deserve something new and exciting…this is the prime of your life!

PHOTOGRAPHY. With the advent of the digital camera, photography has now become a popular hobby among the old and the young. This is because digital cameras have made picture taking fast, easy and cheap! Digital cameras have digital displays. These are called LCDs, and you get to see what you shoot, so you’ll know directly if you took a great picture or not! Digital is now the easiest and cheapest way to go, rather than using old cameras that needed film. So even if you’re still a budding photographer, you don’t have to worry about wasting any film when you take bad pictures, because you can always delete it and shoot again!

CREATIVE WRITING. Is an afternoon with coffee too common already? Then why not have a lovely time with a cup of coffee while dabbling in creative writing. Jotting down what you feel, think and want can be a great emotional outlet for you. You don’t have to be a poet or a novelist to do this, nor do you have to have a degree in creative writing or journalism. Just whip up a notebook (or your laptop) and start writing away. Don’t worry about the form, or about having nothing relevant to write about, just jot down whatever comes into your head. It might not make sense at first, but the idea is to let those creative juices flow freely. When you finally are at ease with writing, then you can start moving on to more complicated things like poems, novels, essays and stories.

VEGETABLE GARDENING. Gardening can be a fun and therapeutic way to spend time. Growing a vegetable garden is one of the easiest and best ways to get fresh organic vegetables. Talk about healthy! If you live in an apartment or don’t have space for a garden, you can always buy little pots and grow herbs near your kitchen sink (or anywhere you have sunlight). This is really great if you also love cooking.

These are just a couple of hobbies to start off with when if you find yourself tired with the routines of life. There is, however, more stuff to do! Visit boomeryearbook.com, connect with other boomers – Boomer Yearbook might become the best new pastime yet!
