A Third Of Us Picked Up A New Hobby This Year

Americans had a lot of downtime during coronavirus lockdowns, and apparently a lot of folks put that time to good use and developed a hobby. 

A new survey finds:

  • Over a third of Americans say they picked up at least one new hobby during the pandemic.
  • 93% of respondents say with all that time spent at home, their hobby gave them a sense of purpose.
  • 89% say it taught them something new about themselves.
  • 60% say their new hobby has inspired them to make a major life change, like a move or change in career. 

So what hobbies were the most popular?

  • Not surprising, cooking/baking topped the list (63%), followed by:
    • Reading (51%)
    • Playing video games (41%)
    • Playing board games (31%)
    • Meditating (28%)
    • Painting/drawing (27%)
    • Creating personalized cards (24%)
    • Hiking (24%)
    • Sewing (24%)
    • Yoga (24%)
    • Biking (22%)
    • Playing an instrument (18%)
    • Knitting (17%)
  • Of those with a new hobby, three-quarters say they got an end product from their efforts.
  • 85% of those folks plan to give their new creations as presents over the holidays this year.
  • 68% believe those gifts will be more meaningful than store-bought gifts.
