Choosing a Hobby to Ease Back to School Stress

As you go back to school, spending time on hobbies that occupied you all summer might seem silly. But not really!

What hobbies do you enjoy? As school comes back into session, spending time with the hobbies that occupied you all summer might seem silly. But since you’ll be spending a majority of your time coping with homework, chores, family time, and the daily hustle of school life, you might not spare much thought for picking up a new hobby as you go back to school.

What Are Your Favorite Activities?

Start by thinking about activities you already enjoy. What are some of your favorite ways to pass the time? Do you enjoying singing and performing music? Or quietly reading and writing? Maybe computers and technology hold your interest instead. Before finding a new hobby, don’t forget that your old ones can still be enjoyable and valuable. After all, access to a computer allows you to explore such wildly different areas such as fashion design, robotics, architecture, and filmmaking. Take your existing talents and broaden your horizons.

Step Outside Your Comfort Zone

Falling into the trap of labels and stereotypes is easy. While these might “define” us, in truth, they don’t. Don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone. When you try something new, you might be pleasantly surprised by the outcome. Even if you’re not athletic, you can still enjoy playing basketball. Don’t have a talent for art? No worries, because drawing can still provide fantastic stress relief.

Have Fun

Whatever new hobbies you choose, it’s important to have some fun. After all, the point of a hobby is to enjoy it. While you might think of hobbies as invaluable resources – and they can be, for college applications – the real purpose of a hobby is to give you a break from life’s more pressing concerns. Don’t let all the excitement and stress of back to school time overwhelm you. Relax and take your time – when you want to unwind, you want to be able to look up and see that two hours have flown by without you realizing it.

Meet Others

Sharing your newfound hobbies is a great way to make new friends. Your family and friends should do all they can to encourage you, but the Internet can be a source of inspiration and deeper friendship than you might expect – just use your judgment when going online!
