Candle Making This a relatively inexpensive hobby to start up, as only a few basic supplies are needed.

Take up a Musical Instrument Many people say they have always wanted to learn a musical instrument but What is stopping you? Music is one of the best ways to release stress! Look for a local tutor in your area if you have never played any instrument before this is a good idea, as it will be a good way to introduce you to the instrument and also to reading music. There are also a great number of online tutorials for various skills, so if you already have a basic idea maybe see if this works for you.
Photography Photography is a great hobby as you can bring it with you! Anywhere that you can take your camera, you can take your hobby and in the process, you can capture holiday memories, family events, spectacular natural phenomena or just life in general. After the initial cost of buying the equipment, there is very little that you will need to keep buying (depending of course on how far you want to go with it) before you begin, it is best to do a little bit of research on what you will need, and if you can speak to people who have been doing it for a while to get tips and advice.
