    So happy to read that writing your thoughts is listed here…yes best way to engage yourself productively is something really required

  5. I like the suggestion about learning a new language! I, however, don’t think have a knack for it but would be great to try!

  6. You’ve jotted down some beautiful pointers and I must say for every point I was saying, Yes, it has to be. I personally love playing with colours, art, crafts and decors along with loving my plants.

  7. Sneha, you have made some great points. Any woman if follows her passion, can become successful as a professional. It helps in augmenting an emotional, mental and professional quotient and a feeling of contentment and success creeps in leading to the better health of the person.

  8. These are some amazing hobbies and I am sure we all love these things to do. My favorite is pen down the thoughts and collecting some nice books.

  9. As someone who loves creativity, I loved the list you shared above. Writing, dancing and reading are my favourites.

  10. Those are some creativity filled fun tips and I am definitely going to bring them to practice!! Love the idea of food styling 🙂

  11. Writing/Blogging always stays on the top of my list. Other than this I love doing DIY and painting. Photography is an integral part of blogging. So I try my hands on that as well.

  12. “And people who dont use 5 senses while eating are not eating consciously.” Couldn’t be more true. Best place to start mindfulness.

    Collecting is a good hobby, but it could also lead to clutter and lack of space. I love collecting beautiful pieces but I stay away from it.

  13. Great suggestions all. I think many of them would apply to men as well – they need hobbies just as much as we do.

  14. These are some very useful tips to make good use of ones time. I think its most important for women at home to develop good time utilisation habits, becasue most of the times, kids watch their moms and learn whatever they observe. I, for example – make sure that my kids watch me with a book in my hands as much as possible. Even if they do not pick up reading as a hobby, I will be able to guide them and tell them that one must not waste time.

  15. Those are some really brilliant ideas up there. Learning new languages always interests me. And for all you know, I may just give food-styling a shot very soon (err…as soon as I learn to cook a decent meal…hehe).

    Until then, I will stick to writing (and of course reading) 😉

  16. I have recently turned into a photography enthusiast and i am loving it . I will keep the other ideas too in mind. Nice compilation!!

  17. food styling and food photography is a new found interest of mine and I am never happy with it. I just want to be best at it.

  18. I have recently turned a photography enthusiast. Will keep the other options too in mind. Nice compilation!!!

  19. Nice ideas. I am self teaching keyboard . However it’s another issue that women hardly get free time, on the contrary they have to find time to pursue some hobbies. 🙂

    Loved the terrace garden idea. I personally really enjoy colouring books. Find the process calming.

  21. I really like your suggestion for the collection. I too love collecting some great affordable pieces, finding them keep me occupied 🙂

  22. Loved reading this post for many reasons. I am a DIY lover, an amateur painter, a naive blogger so you can call me jack of many traits. Hobbies not only help you do something creative but also helps in maintaining sanity. For me, its the must have in my life to keep myself sane.

  23. The 2nd and 3rd hobby is what I’m concentrating now the most. And having my own organic garden is something I’m envisioning dearly for future. 🙂 Such a fun list.

  24. Hobbies are said to improve a person’s well being and you have mentioned fun-filled hobbies over here though I am trying to be consistent in penning down my thoughts I would like to try my hand on photography and colors.

  25. These are some great suggestions. It’s a given that we all need to have some kind of hobby. I am into gardening and cooking. And I also write and paint! Most of the options from the list are checked! 🙂

  26. Though we know most of this, many of us definitely need a lovely reminder like this post to take up something. I have loved blogging and I enjoy writing on my blog! I guess the rest are worth trying! Lovely post Sneha!

  27. An idle mind is a devil’s workship. Doing something is not always about money. It is for our own self development.

    I had this empty feeling at some point of time in my life. That’s when I started researching online for various ideas. Finally landed up creating my own blog and luckily got into various other activities.

    Nice post ☺️

  28. I love your list. You could also add theatre to the list. These are fun things for just about everybody. I thoroughly enjoyed your post. Cheers!

  31. So very practical and relatable. I have tried most of the above hobbies and love to play with colours, it does bring back the child in me.

  32. At one point in time, I was actually wasting my life. I used to spent my whole day watching tv serials or movies or just surfing through the net. And the one day I decided to start my blog. And my life changed. That’s a really comprehensive list of hobbies to try.

  33. I totally agree we should do something productive instead of updating our social media.handles. Writing would be my first choice, then playing with colors and then cooking. 🙂

  34. Some really good ideas here. Although I think my life is all sorted out and so is my free time but there is a lot more that I can do.

    Thanks, I found some cool options.

  35. Those are some pretty good options.. I happen to know a lot of people who would get benifit out of these ideas.. I love doing DIy clothing hacks

  36. I am so relete to some of the tips except the collecting one , will definitely try this one too.
    Thanks for sharing

  37. Penning down my thoughts, art and yoga are what I began doing to drive away boredom that came from sitting idle in the afternoons, years ago. And, I am glad I found these activities. Blogging was something introduced to me by my friend for which I will be eternally grateful to her!
    True, just watching TV and spending time on social media gives nothing but more boredom. I liked your post, so motivational! One most of us women need to read! 🙂

  38. Ahh! Your post reminded me to start gardening again.. Loved the compilation of all the hobbies. My two favs are writing and gardening..

  39. Quite an interesting list of things women can indulge in to pass time and do something fruitful #MyFriendAlexa

  40. As women, we sometimes forget that we also have an identity and deserve some me time. Your post provides so many options to gift quality time to one’s self. Thank you for writing this. Keep writing. Looking forward to reading more posts from you. #MyFriendAlexa #MayuraReads

  41. This is an interesting list indeed. I especially agree about blogging! Several other like photography and food styling can actually lead to an alternate career as well…

  42. Very creative and interesting ideas. Women these days need to find their side…their own side for their mental and emotional well-being. I love photography and writing. Also reading books and magazines. Beautiful Write up.

  43. Amazing list. I practice a lot of those things. I practice many things mentioned in the list: Food styling/photography and blogging .

  44. Lovely post. We all have one life and we should make the most of it. These ideas listed can be pursued by anyone easily. Lately I m into photography along with writing and m enjoying it.

  45. I enjoy all that you listed.Gardening is a super favourite and you must see my insta feed to know how I love it.Great listicle

  46. M already doing pen your thoughts but so many times have thought of learning a new language, but always leave midway for some reason or the other. Other languages fascinate me a lot. Hope I get to learn a new language one day.

  47. I do believe that hobbies and interest are an important aspect of every person, and something that we should not miss out on as we get busy with life and other things.
    I personally love pottering around the Garden and Reading – both are such soul satisfying activitiess and absolute fun 🙂

  48. Every woman I believe should indulge in themselves in something or the other. I love dancing , writing and yoga..These things relax me.
