To be young and in the 20’s is something we all dream about. Its the decade of our lives that we all long for, and never want to end. During this period of self discovery, quarter life crisis and new found commitments, it is natural that we are all wobbly down that road. However, in this time of new found enthusiasm to ace life, this would be the best time to pick up a hobby. Here are some out of the ordinary hobbies that you can try out!
Pottery is so underrated but it is actually the next big thing. I have seen many people take up pottery and say that it’s very addictive and something so calming. Pottery is said to reduce stress levels because you do it with your fingertips. The fingertips are known to be some of the most compacted points because it is a nerve end so when you put pressure on them to smoothen the clay it reduces your stress. If you are a sucker for ceramics, this would be the perfect hobby for you to enjoy. The thing about pottery is that it doesn’t have to be perfect. Here’s a video of the Try Guys try pottery. If they can, why can’t you enjoy it!
By this I don’t mean selfies. Photography is one of the greatest hobbies that you can take up now because this is the time in your life you tend to be the most creative and experience the most in life. While you’re busy doing that, it is the best to capture the moments forever. Let it be a beautiful destination to even a flat lay this would be the perfect time to take those clicks!

20’s are the years of self- discovery so take that dream vacation you needed. High school, college or work can be stressful enough, but take this time to explore the world.
