50 Cool Hobbies For Women Who Want To Spice Things Up

 hobbies for women

I recently went through a transitional phase of feeling bored with the activities that used to entertain me, but unsure of what activities to turn to for fun. In the past, I might’ve joined a kickball league, but that sounded incredibly unappealing. I was in limbo. What was a woman to do?

After spending a few months searching for my fun, I decided to take acting classes and I never looked back. Don’t be like me, don’t waste precious time stuck in a rut when there are so many activities that can pique your interest.

Here’s an extensive list of hobbies, categorized by their appeal, and an explanation of how you can get started immediately.

Hobbies For Women Who Love A Challenge

1. Learn A Language

If you’ve been feeling particularly inspired by the idea of learning a language, what’s stopping you? There’s a misconception that after a certain age it’s too late to explore non-native languages. It’s a misconception because it couldn’t be further from the truth. Sure, you may not retain information as easily as when you were a kid, but a hobby should be low-pressure. You’re not seeking perfection, you’re seeking fun. 

Learning a new language as an adult is such a treat because you’re able to thoroughly appreciate the language and its intricacies. Your interest in the language can expand into an interest in its history, the and the region it’s native to. 

How to get started easily:  

You can get an incredibly inexpensive subscription to Rosetta Stone with the language of your choice and explore at your leisure. Rosetta Stone is the industry-leading way for individuals and corporations to learn languages. 


2. Learn Choreography

I wasn’t the only 90s kid that watched MTV and VH1 for the music videos, stumbling through N’Sync, Backstreet Boys, and Britney Spears choreography. That was one of the primary ways I entertained myself after school and on the weekends. Then, my classmates and I would get together and perform the routines as a group.

Well, guess what I tried to learn the choreography to Ciara’s 2018 “Level Up” song and it’s still fun, even in my 30s. Not only is it fun, but it’s a challenge, it helps you express pent-up energy, and it’s a workout. You may or may not have girlfriends interested in fumbling through the choreography with you like when we were kids, but you don’t need ‘em. This can be solo or group fun.

How to get started easily:

Create a free account on VEVO and explore music videos from artists known for high dance performances like Bruno Mars, Beyoncé, Ciara, Britney Spears ETC.  Then, try to find a choreography tutorial on YouTube, I guarantee you it exists. If I’m somehow wrong, or if the videos available are low-quality, then try your best to learn from the music video itself. Hell, you may learn the steps well enough to make your own YouTube tutorial.


3. Learn An Instrument

Learning an instrument can be a really fun hobby because it challenges you to use your brain differently. Most people go straight for the learning the piano or guitar because they’re familiar and quite accessible. But, the key is to make sure you pick an instrument you’re really interested in.

I grew up the daughter of a jazz musician and therefore music was just a part of our childhoods. My parents got me into piano lessons early and I thought it was the most boring thing ever. Then, after a year of torture, they allowed me to choose my own instrument. I chose the clarinet and I never looked back. I went on to play symphonic music in school and traveled all over for concerts. I loved it.

So, the lesson here is to find the right fit for you if learning an instrument is a hobby you’d like to explore. 

How to get started easily:

Take a trip to the closest music store and tell them about your idea. You want to learn an instrument but want to be sure it’ll interest you for the long haul. Many music stores will let you play around with various instruments until you find one that lights you up. Then, they can help you choose the best version of your chosen instrument at your beginner level and even connect you with a good teacher. 


4. Learn Magic Tricks

There’s something about a slight-of-hand trick that’s so intriguing. Depending on how good the magician is, no matter how closely you pay attention you still can’t figure out how they performed the trick. It’s fun for everyone on both sides of the illusion.  

How to get started easily: 

You can start with simple card tricks by picking up a pack of cards and a book on card tricks. Once you’ve mastered those, you can level up to more intricate tricks.  

Hobbies For Women Who Want To Test Their Limits

5. Improv & Acting

I talked about how I discovered improv and acting classes as the exact fun I’d been looking for in this self-care article. Acting forces you to release your inhibitions while exploring choice and human behavior. Acting as a hobby is not something to beat yourself up over, so through the course of your classes, you’ll learn how to act without negativity. You can’t get it wrong.

The one caveat is to make sure that your acting coach is encouraging and positive. To do that, ask to attend a class just to observe. You’ll be able to see the acting coach’s style from the sidelines and get an understanding of the format of the class. If you don’t prefer the acting coach’s style you can go back to meet up or google and keep looking until you find one that you do prefer. 

How to get started easily: 

You can find local acting classes on meetup.com or by googling “acting classes in my area.” 


6. Painting

Painting is a really good hobby to pick up because it allows you to explore your creativity subjectively. You can paint anything you want whether it be a big circle, a landscape, or a stick figure.

How to get started easily:

Get this extremely high-quality 51 minute beginners acrylic paint class from Brit and Co. Megan Elizabeth, the course instructor, will walk you through how to paint landscapes and will show you which supplies you need. The class is offered on demand so you can watch whenever you get some time.

Once you purchase the class you have lifetime access to it so you will be able to learn from it indefinitely and at your leisure.

7. Singing

If you can carry a tune and love doing so, maybe you want to expand your hobby beyond singing in the shower or car.

How to get started easily:

Create a meetup.com account if you don’t already have one, and search for “singing” or “singing groups.” These groups are usually amateurs and are looking for additional members who can add greater range to their melodies.

8. Dancing

Dancing is an incredible activity because it allows you to funnel energy through your body which improves your mood. Dancing is a fun way to incorporate exercise into your life and improve your overall well-being as well.

How to get started easily:

I’m going to send you to meetup.com to turn your affinity for dance into a hobby. The reason why is because meetup will help you find events, groups, and locations to dance in addition to the people to dance with which gives you that social experience. Otherwise, you might find a local salsa night but may feel too intimidated to actually go and introduce yourself to strangers.


9. Stand-Up Comedy

If no other hobby idea on this list will help you test your limits, stand-up comedy sure will. Write down your best or most stupid jokes, either of them could get you a laugh or two and give stand-up a try. Stand-up makes a great hobby if you love a stage and love to put yourself out there. 

If you really are worried about getting laughs then invite your friends to come for support. But, keep in mind that it’s amateur stand-up so everyone will probably suck. You’re just there to have some fun, and maybe suck at it too. 

How to get started easily:

It’s actually really easy to find amateur stand-up with a simple google search. Many bars, comedy clubs, and coffee shops host periodic amateur nights. All you need to do is make a call and get your name added to the line-up. 


10. Spoken Word & Poems

Spoken word and poetry are excellent hobbies if you want to test your vulnerability. Much of writing and performing spoken word and poems is very intimate and the performances are even more emotionally enthralling.

How to get started easily:

Much like finding amateur stand-up, you can find spoken word nights via google and meetup.com. Or, if you have an independent local coffee shop nearby you can stop in and ask if they know of any events happening in your area.

Hobbies For Women Who Need More Down Time

11. Meditating

Meditation is incredibly important to your overall health because it’s the practice of managing your brain’s activity and your brain controls your entire body. If you find it difficult to allocate time to meditation, change your perception of it from something to help you when you’re upset to something you do as a hobby and for fun. In doing so, you’ll practice meditation more frequently and will experience the benefits even more.

How to get started easily:

Many people find starting with guided meditations the easiest. So, download an app like Calm on iTunes or Google Play. This is the app that I use daily because I get to choose how I interact with it, while others may force you through a tutorial. I’ve clocked 275 meditative days, 338 sessions, and 97 hours via this app.

You also might consider creating a meditation space or meditation room within your home. We’ve written an article that will help you figure out how to create such a space and what to include in it.

12. Yoga

Yoga as a hobby is a wonderful choice for someone who wants more excuses to loosen up. Like meditation, changing the perception on healthy practices from something you should do, to something you want to learn more about and explore as a hobby is a great way to take interest and still experience the health benefits.

How to get started easily:

All you need to get started with yoga is floor space, a yoga mat, and a good yoga app like Yoga Studio which you can download via iTunes or Google Play.

13. Relaxing

I’m 100% serious that relaxing is a hobby you might want to consider. At least, you should think of it as a hobby. In doing so, you’ll remember to schedule time for it and not feel like a hobby has to be something that keeps you physically busy. We covered this in our article "Is Relaxing Considered A Hobby?” give it a read.

How to get started easily:

Put your phone on Do Not Disturb and tee up some of your favorite low-key activities, like binge-watching tv.


14. Jigsaw Puzzles

Putting together jigsaw puzzles is a great hobby for someone who enjoys quiet contemplation. Puzzles can come in hundreds or thousands of pieces and with different degrees of difficulty.  You can even throw puzzle parties by grabbing a new puzzle, a couple of bottles of wine, and some pizza for your friends. You guys can all come together and see how far you get with the puzzle. Are several heads really better than one? 

How to get started easily: 

It’s pretty easy to get started with jigsaw puzzles, just grab one from Amazon like this 750 piece Cats of Charles Wyoscki puzzle and you’re ready to go. 


15. Writing & Journaling

Both writing short stories and journaling are great ways to relax. Handwriting is found to increase neural activity in certain sections of the brain, much like meditation.

How to get started easily:

All you need is a journal and a good pen. If you have some trouble figuring out what to write about you can try using journals with prompts and start off responding to those prompts which will help you exercise that creative side of your brain.

16. Movie Reviewing

If you love movies, watch more of them intentionally. Watch straight to streaming and B-rate movies as well as high budget and indie films. Watch them all and analyze the plots, character development, scene settings, and scripts.

How to get started easily:

All you need is a subscription to a streaming service, which you probably already have, an IMDB or Rotten Tomatoes account, and your opinions.

41. Book Club

I’ve always admired people who could read books cover to cover and then discuss the intricacies of the characters and plot development. Don’t get me wrong, I read books but I don’t know that I would be able to add much to depth to a discussion about them.

How to get started easily:

I’m going to send you back to meetup.com to find a book club. Of the many cities I’ve lived in there were always loads of book clubs available. Once you’ve found a group that seems like a good fit, just RSVP for their next event and show up!

Hobbies For Women Who Want To Collaborate With Nature

44. Aquatics & Aquariums

Aquariums are great hobbies if you enjoy nature because you get to experience the challenge of managing a tank, but to also learn about aquatic environments and how those ecosystems thrive harmoniously. Additionally, once you set up your tank you’ll realize that you’ve created a living thing that evolves and grows right before your eyes.

Fresh-water tanks are the easiest to maintain for newbies. My suggestion is to go to your nearest pet store, or aquatics store and ask them to set up you with a good tank the best types of fish for beginners.

What’s not to love about traveling? The sights, the people, the food, the culture all make for satisfying experiences. You don’t even have to leave the country to find areas worth traveling to. You can plan an extensive trip or a simpler trip to a neighboring state.

How to get started easily:

Pick a place you want to go. If it’s an international location, check Groupon for package deals. If it’s in the country, you’ll just need an Air Bnb and a plane ticket. Book your plane ticket first. Just do it, because once you’ve spent money on the plane ticket you have some skin in the game and will follow through on your plans.

Hobbies For Women Who Are Super Organized
