Having hobbies is an important part of anyone's life. It is not only important to have hobbies so that you can stay sane from work or study, but also so that you can use break up the monotony and use your creative mind.

Hobbies keep us busy and many of them also allow us to experience people who otherwise we would never have met. Hobbies give us a way to refresh, regroup and rejuvenate when the going gets tough.

Everyone should have a hobby or two - but how should you pick a hobby? What are some good hobby ideas? I've compiled a list of 10 hobbies, all of which I would consider to be positive and productive in some way.

1. Learn to Dance

Dancing expands your mind, challenges your memory and tones your body. You can meet lovely people and listen to some great music. There are loads of styles. If you're in Sydney, consider checking out some dance classes in Sydney CBD, Eastern Suburbs, Lower North Shore, Sydney's South or the Hills & Western Sydney. You can focus on a particular style (for example, Waltz or ballet) or go to a number of different styles of you wish.

2. Adopt or Look After Someone Else's Pet

Even if you live in a building that doesn't like the idea of pets, you could get a fish tank or some hermit crabs. In any case, looking after a pet, even someone else's pet, could be a fun hobby (especially if you get to give the pet back at the end of the day). Please do not commit to actually adopting a pet if you won't keep it, perhaps offer to dog-walk or cat-sit for others instead. If you don't want to commit to taking anyone home or walking them, you could also feed the local swans.

4. Learn to Sew

Not only can you learn how to repair clothing, but you can also create some pretty neat stuff through sewing. It also helps to train our fine motor skills, so it's useful in basically every way.

5. Discover Your Inner Artist

Could you be the next Picasso, Matisse, Renoir or Michelangelo? You'll never know if you don't try an artistic hobby. Start by picking up some art supplies, trying out some carving courses, sculpture courses,
painting courses, photography courses or even some acting classes.

7. Try the Great Outdoors

From bushwalking to boating, maybe the great outdoors is what you need to unwind. If you have a partner or a friend, why not try out some glamping one weekend soon? You could also check how green your thumb is by trying your hand at some gardening. You could also just walk around outside wherever you are and contribute to Google while you do. Why not learn to fly a helicopter? Why not go whale watching? You could also go hot air ballooning. The world is your oyster.

8. Embrace the Digital Landscape

If you're an outdoor person and you'd like to focus on some indoor activities, you could see how many other people live. Many people use lots of media and procrastinate online. There are many who binge-watch many television shows, including trashy reality television or even captivating documentaries. Alternatively, you could play online games, but be warned, they can be super addictive.

9. Improve and Educate Yourself

Even if you're the most accomplished of PHDs, I bet you could still improve yourself. Perhaps you could learn something new by picking up a new or free short course on the side, or by giving yourself a fun side part time profession. Many people also turn their side hustles into their new profession.

10. Volunteer Yourself

Sometimes giving to others will give you so much more than you can imagine. If you're otherwise fulfilled in your life, why not volunteer?

That is all - I hope that this list has helped you find a new hobby.
