Thinking of Taking up a New Hobby? Why Not Now?

Every New Year we’re expected to come up with resolutions, or ways we we think we can improve our lives in the coming year. For some people it’s cutting back on junk food or dusting off the old stationary bike, while others set their sites on running a marathon, or just getting more regular exercise.

New Years resolutions are nice in theory, but many people overshoot realistic goals and go right for the super-duper-hard ones (I’m looking at you, first-time marathon runner); and, while there is nothing wrong with aiming for the stars, might I suggest tempering your huge New Years resolutions with one a little more attainable? Take up a new hobby.

Knitting, puzzles, yoga, Indian cooking, HAM radio, building scale models, photography, learning guitar, making movies, painting, or riding your bike–these are all wonderful activities that can start out as your new hobby for 2012!

The library is a natural place to start researching your proposed new hobby! (Click on any of the hobbies above to find some great resources.)

Once you’ve found what you’re interested in, check out one of these Pittsburgh area hobby shops.

There’s no better time to take up a new hobby than now–it’s National Hobby Month and those resolutions are fresh in your mind, so get to it!
