What are social hobbies?
Social hobbies are leisurely pastimes that emphasize interactions with fellow humans. They create an atmosphere where people can comfortably come together to learn and develop new skills while enjoying conversation and connection.
#1 Host a Game Night
Game nights are one of the best ways to connect with neighbors or new friends. You can get nerdy with Settlers of Catan, think quickly on your toes with Taboo, stay kid-friendly with Sushi Go!, or laugh your buts off at inappropriate humor in Cards Against Humanity.
#2 Learn a Language
Learning to speak a new language requires, uh… speaking it. If you’ve ever tried to learn Spanish, Italian, or Japanese on your own and it didn’t stick, your socially-wired mind was probably just craving someone to practice (and laugh) with.
#3 Attend Workshops or Conferences
Whether you’re into entrepreneurship, homesteading, art, cryptocurrency, or psychology, there are conferences for everything under the sun. Each seminar, discussion, and happy hour is another opportunity to meet people who came to learn more about the same things you’re interested in.
#4 Dance Classes
Swing, salsa, ballroom, tango, bachata, contra whatever dance style you choose, this is a hobby where you don’t have to overthink what you’re going to say. When everyone takes a break to chat, you may find that you feel right at home.
#5 Yoga and Acro Yoga Classes
The physical and mental health benefits of yoga seem to read like a long extravagant sales commercial: more flexibility, less back pain, less stress and anxiety, and a more positive mood.
