For most of us, our lives are consumed by work, family, and the daily grind. We get up, work, eat, and go to sleep. Rinse and repeat. Starting a new hobby can be a great way to take a break from the daily grind. With never-ending work stress and personal issues, many of us need an outlet where we can relax, recharge and refresh. It turns out hobbies provide the perfect outlet for us to renew our spirit and get our mojo back.

2023 is the year you should make your hobby a reality. If prior years have been stressful, overwhelming and lazy at times, then it’s time to make some changes. You need to find something that keeps you healthy both physically and mentally. So, why not try something new this year? I’m talking about a hobby that you can enjoy for a lifetime, not just for a few weeks or months. It doesn’t matter what you like to do or what your passion is, you can always find a way to make a hobby of it.
When you are looking for a new hobby, you have to find something that you are passionate about, whether it be an activity, a sport, a creative endeavor or an existing hobby that you are interested in improving upon. It is important to find something you will truly enjoy because if you don’t enjoy it and the time that you dedicate to it, you won’t stick with it and you will set yourself up for failure. However, if you do find a hobby that you are passionate about, that you truly enjoy, you will be much more likely to continue doing it and it will help you to create new experiences that you enjoy and to be more creative and open-minded.

With so many great options available to you, it’s impossible to get bored! So what is the right hobby for you? Most of you know I love writing and I’ve been writing since, well… before I could spell! Some of my first memories were, “writing” the letters E and O with my grandma as I told her a story of what I WANTED to write. 😂
For fun, I ghostwrite fictional narratives – something I’ve been doing for a while now. Last year, I learned how to create AI digital artwork to go along with the made-up stories I write. I love writing fiction because it allows my brain to take a much-needed break from reality and explore creative possibilities.
So what is the right hobby for you?
Here’s a few examples of the AI Artwork I’ve created to go with some of the fictional stories I’ve written.
