List Rules Vote up the coolest, most interesting hobbies for young people.

What are your hobbies and interests? If you're employed or if you're a student, your life is probably pretty hectic. Which is why having cool hobbies is so important! Trying new things is a great way to take your mind off your busy routine - and fortunately for you, there's a whole world out there filled with countless opportunities for enjoyment. So if you've been looking for some good ideas on how to spend your free time, browse through this list of cool hobbies to have and try something new! 

The best hobbies are the ones that require some brain juice. Be it learning an instrument or exploring a new forest preserve near you, if you want to keep your brain and your body healthy and active, you should frequently be doing new things that challenge your everyday routine. You don't have to go to extremes and start meditating on top of the Sierras on the weekends, but with a little effort you could embark on a journey of discovery after viewing these cool hobbies to learn - many of them are cheap hobbies you can get into without a financial investment as well! 

Here are some things you won't find on this list: trolling Instagram, text messaging, taking photos of your food, watching Netflix for eight hours a day, going to work, making bad memes, taking photos of yourself for two hours in your bedroom, etc. Those aren't interesting hobbies at all!

Be different. Do your own thing. All those things we listed in the paragraph above are super boring. Anyone can lurk randoms on social media. Anyone can go to work in the morning. No excuses. Find a cheap and easy hobby that makes you happy, and get off your butt and out into the world.
