10 unique hobbies to try in 2024

Find a new hobby to indulge in for the new year to better your skills.

Having hobbies is the perfect way to enhance your skills and keep your mind busy.

From sewing to gardening, hobbies can not only make you active, but they can also help your everyday life.

Here is a guide on 10 hobbies to try in 2024:


Sewing is the perfect hobby to start because you will be able to not only make new clothes but tailor your own.

You can start small by taking classes at local sewing classes with instructors or even by learning on apps like YouTube and TikTok.


If you want to get active and not go to the gym, a simple start is buying a yoga mat and watching YouTube videos of instructors for free.

Some cities like Detroit also offer yoga classes at different parks and locations. A quick Google search can help you find some local classes around you if you have the money to pay for them.

During the warmer months in Detroit, Beacon Park offers a variety of yoga classes for individuals to indulge in.

Check out City Glow Yoga on Instagram for more information regarding those classes and yoga in Detroit.


Take a pottery workshop to learn the art of ceramics. It’s something different, and you may end up enjoying the result.


Buy some canvases and paint from your local craft store and get to painting.

It doesn’t have to be anything special or artistic, but just starting helps.

Painting can be very soothing and peaceful when you indulge yourself in it.

Creative writing

If you’re into writing, start writing short stories or journal entries.

All you need is your phone to type on or a notebook to get started, with prompts or just thoughts.

Gardening is an activity that requires a lot of patience but can also be very fulfilling.

You can start small with house plants and move outside once comfortable with the upkeep.

Start this spring by buying some planters, potting soil, and seeds. You can plant the seeds in the house and then move them outside when it’s warm enough. Just have the space and soil prepared before you make that move outside.

You do not want to move your plants outside, and they immediately die because the ground was not prepared or you weren’t.

Check out articles and tips before planting so it’s not a disaster. Also, research the plants and seeds before you buy.


Take a dance class to get active if the gym is not your vibe.

Or start dancing around your house while listening to your favorite tunes.


Head to your local craft store and buy a scrapbook and a few supplies.

Scrapbooking is a perfect way to get creative and also keeps your memories.

Things you can scrapbook:

  • Memories
  • Accomplishments
  • Trips
  • Fashion
  • Selfies
  • Family time
  • Outings with friends


You can also use Pinterest and TikTok to find different recipes that interest you.

Another idea is to buy random cookbooks from thrift stores and use them to find food items that may have previously been popular but now are no longer. It challenges you to get creative and step out of your comfort zone.

Best places to find recipes and cookbooks:

  • Pinterest
  • Google
  • Thrift stores
  • TikTok
  • Instagram
  • Book stores
  • Library


Like sewing, crocheting can help you create new accessories and clothing for your wardrobe.

Take another trip to your craft store, buy some crochet supplies, and look up basic techniques and patterns on Pinterest and other social media platforms.

Bonus: Content Creating

If crafts aren’t your thing, start content creating your favorite niche, whether it’s fashion, music, healthy living, or cooking.

Create social media content dedicated to that niche and have fun. While using your phone, you can take photos or videos of different trends, techniques, and styles.
