Along with 90 ideas, I have included a brief description of each hobby and some additional tips. So read on for some inspiration.

Importance of Hobbies For Women in 30s

Hobbies include any activities a person engages in regularly simply because they find them enjoyable and meaningful. Think of it as a form of relaxation, usually done when you are not working.

There is a rise in the glorification of hustle culture, making it more challenging to carve out time to engage in hobbies and focus on doing things we enjoy.

Also, if you were raised in a dysfunctional family, you may have experienced pushback for expressing yourself and pursuing your hobbies. You were not encouraged to pursue your interests, and if your family never had any interests of their own outside work, this could have felt normal not to have any hobbies.

Hobbies are a great way to relieve stress and serve as a distraction from work and your daily schedules. It is a form of relaxation that enhances all areas of your life. A core foundation of reparenting also includes cultivating and fostering your interests.

The importance of hobbies include: 

  • Increased brain function and prioritizing your physical health
  • Gaining a sense of mastery and decreasing stress
  • Socializing and meeting new people
  • Nurturing and fostering creativity  
  • Self-growth and finding yourself

How Do I Find A Hobby In My 30s?

Finding a hobby does not have to be a stressful process. However, you want to approach it with a curious mindset instead of seeing it as another item to add to your to-do list. 

It can be overwhelming to find hobbies you enjoy. If you have never had a hobby before and this is the first time you are getting to know yourself, know that it is okay to take it slow. The last thing you need is to sprinkle hustle culture into this process. Instead, take your time and find what you enjoy. 

To make this easier for you, I have divided the hobbies into categories:

  • New hobbies for women in their 30s
  • Active hobbies for women in their 30s
  • Relaxing hobbies for women in their 30s
  • Outdoor hobbies list
  • Self-growth hobbies
  • Hobbies for women at home
  • Mindful hobbies
  • Food and cooking hobbies
  • Travel hobbies 

Write down a list of hobbies you are willing to try and see what works best for you.

90+ Best Hobbies For Women In 30s

hobbies for women in their 30s

New Hobbies For Women in Their 30s

1. Explore a New City

Exploring different places is one of the best ways to get to know yourself and your interests.

Whether you travel alone or ask a friend to join, this hobby is a great way to learn about different cultures and new cuisines and try things you have never tried before.

2. Join a Book Club 

Joining a book club is a great way to meet new people and make time to read. Reading might be challenging to fit into your day if you have a busy schedule. Being a part of a book club allows you to have a scheduled time to pick up a book and share your interests.

Book clubs are also helpful with expanding your perspective as you listen to other people speak about their experience reading the book.

3. Try a New Skill

What better way to step out of your comfort zone than to try a new skill? There are many different mind-body benefits of trying new skills, but most importantly, you foster your growth mindset. As a result, you don't become a victim of the same mindset over and over.

Whether you are learning a new language, getting into graphic design, or understanding how to change a tire, trying a new skill will boost your confidence and increase your happiness levels.

4. Painting or Drawing

If you're looking for something more hands-on than writing, then painting or drawing could be just what you need!

This is a hobby I picked up through my sister. My youngest sister is highly artistic and enjoys painting and drawing during her free time. This hobby taught me how to stay connected with the present and NOT color inside the lines.

Creative hobbies are a great way to step outside your comfort zone and be messy. You don't need to be Picasso to engage in this hobby. The goal is to have fun and be creative.

5. Set Up Weekly Dates With Friends

When you are in your 30s, your life can get pretty busy. Setting up weekly dates with friends (or family) is a great way to stay in touch. 

6. Attend Free Local Events 

This is a great way to spend some alone time with yourself. In addition, most cities host free events for their community, and it's a great way to stay connected.

With the holidays, most cities will have many free events, including the layout of lights, standup comedy, and musical events.

The city I live in hosted a celebration of culture to recognize the diversity in our community that included ethnic food, cultural entertainment, and cultural booths. It was amazing to see India celebrated alongside many other beautiful countries and their traditions.

7. Learn About the Stock Market

I recently picked up a book called 'Girls That Invest' by Simran Kaur after my friend recommended it. I have always wanted to learn more about the stock market but needed to figure out where to start.

Learning about the stock market, diversifying your income, and staying informed are hobbies of successful woman.

8. Go To a dance class

Going to a dance class is another great way to step outside your comfort zone. You can choose any class you want, making this a fun experience. One of my closest friends started going to a Bhangra class, and the joy on her face was incredible.

Try out a dance class and get uncomfortable.

9. Visiting Historical Landmarks 

I am a huge history buff. Anytime I visit new places, I like to check out their landmarks. This hobby can be another great way to explore and appreciate the culture of the people who came before us.

Fostering this hobby fosters learning which can lead to personal growth, and the most amazing part of picking up this hobby is you can start right from your city.

10. Couponing 

Is anyone else a fan of the show 'Extreme Couponing?' I always wondered how their huge bill came out to be less than $10.00, and as I started using coupons, I realized it was more than just about saving money.

This hobby will allow you to think about where and how you spend your money, be a savvy shopper, and fosters organization skills.

Active Hobbies for Women in Their 30s

hobbies for women in their 30s

11. Yoga 

Yoga is a beautiful way to connect with your body, relax, and find peace of mind. Whether you want to go to a yoga class or follow a guided yoga video on YouTube, there is something for everyone.

There are many different types of yoga available; hot, restorative, power, and the list goes on! Try out a few classes at your local studio or watch online videos if you need more time.

12. Weightlifting

This is my favorite hobby. Weightlifting is therapy for me, and like yoga, it has many mental health and physical benefits.

As the saying goes, movement is medicine, and lifting weights is a great way to prioritize your health and foster self-confidence. Check out your local gym to see their services to help you get started.

13. Hiking

One of the best ways to spend time in nature is hiking. Fortunately, hiking is an inexpensive hobby and extremely easy to start. You can go hiking alone or take your hiking buddy with you.

If you are a nature lover, you want to add this to your list of hobbies for 2023. Your lungs will thank you!

14. Swimming

Swimming is a hobby that allows you to get a whole-body workout and can be fun. Regardless of the season, you can go swimming whenever you like, and like most physical activities, you can choose to go swimming alone or add to the fun by bringing your friends. 

Another benefit of swimming is expanding your list of hobbies to future water activities like scuba diving, snorkeling, and/or water polo.

15. Running 

I have a love-hate relationship with running. There was a time when I could run 5 miles like nobody's business. In my 30s, however, running isn't on my list, but reframing it into a hobby has been extremely helpful.

Put on your running shoes, play good music, and get outside.

16. Try a Pilates Class

I LOVE pilates. I love most forms of exercise, but pilates is my favorite hobby.

There are many benefits, including stress relief, improved flexibility, and a continued way to stay connected to your body. Regular pilates practice also improves your posture, making your abs look great.

Many different classes are available that include your local studio or gym if you want to learn from the experts. However, pilates can be costly, so if you want to save money, there are plenty of videos online.

17. Walking

Outdoor (or indoor) walks are simple and a great addition to hobbies for 30s. It's free of charge and easy to pair with another interest, like listening to music or podcast.

18. Biking 

Biking is a great way to get outside. I live in a cold state, so this hobby is more seasonal. However, I LOVE getting on my bike when it is warmer out. It is fun to move your body and mix up your workouts.

This is one of those activities we all did as kids, but as you got older, your bike was forgotten in the corner of your garage. So, take your bike out and get outside.

19. Dancing

Dancing is a great way to step outside of your comfort zone. You can choose from many options, making it super easy to find something you like.

This hobby does not have to be limited to women in their 30s. It can also be included in hobbies for women in their 20s, hobbies for men in their 30s, and hobbies for women in their 40s- it truly is for everyone.

20. Boxing

Say what you want, but boxing has to be one of the most badass female hobbies. It is a great way to get your emotions out and move your body in another fun way.

It is also a great way to develop self-confidence and feel strong. If you are new to working out or getting bored with your workout routine, add boxing to your list of hobbies. It is one of my favorite hobbies for women in their 30s.

Relaxing Hobbies

hobbies for women in their 30s

21. Puzzle

Puzzles are fun hobbies for women in their 30s and a great addition to hobbies for couples in their 30s. Depending on the puzzle's difficulty, they can be relaxing and require your brain power.

Puzzles can be a great way to slow down and stay connected to the present moment.

22. Gardening

Gardening is well-known hobbies for moms. My mom LOVES gardening. She grows flowers, vegetables, and even herbs. It is a hobby I am adding to my list, and I hope you do too. It certainly does not have to be limited to moms. Gardening is also a fun addition to hobbies for men in their 30s. It is a great way to learn how to care for plants and foster your mental health.

If you are new to gardening, you can start with an indoor plant and learn how to keep it alive. Then, as you get better at it, you can expand your skills and move on to the big leagues. Plus, gardening isn't just about the result; it's also about caring for something with patience and love.

23. Meditation

Meditation is another one of my favorite hobbies. When I started practicing meditation, I thought I had to sit in one spot and empty my mind of all thoughts. That belief made it challenging to continue pursuing this hobby, but as I learned more about the different ways and benefits, it has become a skill that I regularly practice and rely on.

Meditation is one of the most beneficial hobbies for women in their 30s and will help you foster your mental well-being.

24. Breathwork

If meditation is challenging to take on right now, you can start with breath work. Like meditation, breath work has many positive benefits and will help calm your nervous system.

You can start with the 4-7-8 breathing or progressive muscle relaxation to get you started.

25. Stretch Your Body

You want to add this hobby to your list if you work from home as I do. Stretching can be a great way to move your body gently and remove any stiffness it may be held throughout the day.

As the saying goes, motion brings emotion, and stretching can be a great way to remove any stress or lack of motivation you may be experiencing. However, please don't feel like you need to do an hour of stretching every day to reap its benefits. Many studies show that simply moving your body for 5-10 minutes can be beneficial.

Grab some water and get started with a light body stretch. Your muscles with thank you!

26. Take a Warm Bath or Shower

You will want to add this hobby to your list if you live in a colder state as I do. After a long day of work or a stressful day, a warm bath or hot shower can be a great way to close your day.

It can also be an addition to your nighttime routine.

27. Take a Coffee or Tea Break

This is another one of my favorite relaxing hobbies. Unfortunately, we have a hustle culture that gives us the perception that there are better options than slowing down. Stay aware of that message.

Taking mindful breaks during your day allows you to slow down and take a breath. My favorite way of taking a break is my coffee (sometimes tea) break, where I disengage from technology and take a moment to sit with myself.

You can expand on this hobby by adding your favorite book or music to this break.

28. Listen to Soothing Music 

Music is one of the most productive ways to cope with your emotions- why not make it a hobby? The beauty of music is that it has the power to connect people from all over the world.

I like to play relaxing flute music in the morning, which helps me set the intention for the day. I also listen to music when I am showering or need to find a way to connect to the present moment. And the best part is, it's free. So go on YouTube and play your favorite soothing music.

29. Playing a Musical Instrument

Playing a musical instrument has to be one of the best hobbies for women in their 30s ideas. My youngest sister like to play the ukulele, and my other younger sister likes to play the flute and piano as a hobby.

Many videos online can teach you how to play a musical instrument for free, making this one of the easier hobbies to add to your list.

30. Mindful Sitting

As I mentioned, we live in a hustle culture that promotes toxic productivity culture. This idea that you must be doing something at all times is harmful and extremely tiring.

Adopting this mindful sitting hobby allows you to detach and do what you enjoy without worrying about the results. Whether sitting down for 5 minutes to focus on your breath or scrolling on social media, sometimes it is okay to do nothing.

Outdoor Hobbies List

hobbies for women in their 30s

31. Play a Musical Instrument

Playing a musical instrument has to be one of the best hobbies for women in 30s. My youngest sister like to play the ukulele, and my other younger sister likes to play the flute and piano as a hobby.

Many videos online can teach you how to play a musical instrument for free, making this one of the easier hobbies to add to your list.

32. Writing

Writing is a great way to unlock your creative side and can be an incredibly cathartic experience. It provides an outlet for your thoughts and gains clarity around them.

If you live in a warm place, why not take advantage of the outdoors and sit with your thoughts? Whether you are writing stories or jotting down ideas for your future, writing can help open doors for self-expression and growth.

33. Archery

Archery is something I am adding to my list of hobbies in 2023. My youngest sister (have you caught up on how talented she truly is) started archery as a hobby at a forest preserve near us. Archery keeps your mind sharp, and it's fun, low-cost to start, and will help improve your upper body strength.

If you are looking for hobbies for women in their 30s ideas, consider taking up archery.

34. Birdwatching 

Before you scratch this off your list, try it out. Birdwatching is similar to people-watching, but you watch birds instead of people. 

Birdwatching is a hobby you can participate in any time and anywhere, making it the most convenient activity. It is also a good mindfulness skill teaching you willingness and slowing down.
As you continue engaging in this hobby, you will appreciate different species of birds and their way of life.

35. Photography

Photography is incredibly fun and a great way to document our lives. You can challenge yourself in endless ways and always have something new to learn.

My favorite part of capturing pictures is the inspiration I get to capture. Every picture tells a story, and there is the freedom to create without limitations.

36. Camping

Camping can be fun for getting close to your friends and family. It teaches you to rely on yourself and others, forcing you to learn new skills.

It is also a great way to disconnect from your everyday life and be present with your surroundings.

37. Jogging

If you are not a runner, try light jogging. You still get all the benefits of cardio, which can help improve your mood. You might struggle a bit as a beginner, but as your body adjusts, you will start looking forward to your next jog.

It is the most accessible and inexpensive hobby you can tailor to your goals. So don't wait another day to get started on this hobby.

38. Roller Skating

Roller skating is a habit two of my sisters picked up last year. So summer was a perfect time to enjoy this hobby, from roller skating to the coffee shop to the trails park.

Roller skating focuses on stepping out of your comfort zone, allowing you to nurture self-trust. So if you are looking for a new hobby this summer, look no further.

39. Skateboarding 

My sister's boyfriend frequently skateboards throughout our trail parks and does all these cool tricks. However, if you are starting, you might want to start smaller.

There are many skateboard parks now, which is great because you get to meet like-minded people and learn at your own pace- there is no pressure. Also, anytime there is an excuse to get outside, you want to try it out.

Skateboarding is one of the best hobbies for women in their 30s. Take on a challenge.

40. Picking Fruit

Like birdwatching, picking fruit is a hobby you must try before deciding it is not for you. Fruit picking is a great way to get your hands dirty outside.

Spending a few hours outside picking fruits and vegetables can also help with increasing positive emotions. Plus, you get to eat as much fruit as you want. Win-win!

Self-Growth Hobbies

hobbies for women in their 30s

41. Create a Vision Board

Vision boards are a great way to plan for the future and the type of life you want. I like to create yearly vision boards. It is extremely motivating to look at the board in the morning, reminding me of what I am working towards.

Vision boards can also be helpful to help keep you on track. So if you are looking for a yearly hobby, try this one out.

42. Mind Dumping

A popular technique my sister shared with me is the mind-dumping hobby. Before you go to bed, dump all your thoughts, worries, stressors, etc., on paper. For example, are you worried about a conflict at work? Dump it. Are you stressed about your to-do list for tomorrow? Dump it.

 This hobby is highly beneficial for mental health and can help with more restful sleep.

43. Gratitude List

Gratitude creates happiness and fosters your growth mindset. So most mornings (schedule permitting), I like to write 3-5 things I am thankful for and get into the mindset of taking a few breaths around this.

When you can redirect your mind to something you are thankful for, you create an optimistic outlook on life. Try it out. What are three things you are grateful for today?

44. Create a To-Do List

Your to-do list is highly beneficial in promoting self-growth. Looking at your to-do list the night before helps you stay organized for the next day. You can create a task list of everything you need to focus on and put it on your calendar.

If you are looking for a time management hobby, try creating a daily (or weekly) to-do list.

45. Write in a Journal 

Similar to mind dumping, journaling is a beneficial self-care practice. From reflecting on your behaviors to improving your writing skills, journaling is a great hobby to add to your list.

This is definitely my favorite hobbies for women in their 30s.

46. Read Books

Reading is one of the most cherished hobbies for women in their 30s. I have enjoyed reading books for as long as I can remember.

Reading is a great way to expand your perspective and foster a growth mindset. I am a paper gal, so I like reading a physical book, but you can easily swap that for your kindle.

47. Learn a New Language

Fun fact, I had to learn 3 additional languages when I moved to India for school. Our ability to learn a new language is definitely easier when we are younger. As adults, learning a new language can take time, but it can be extremely rewarding and open you to a whole new world.

Besides strengthening your brain functions, learning some basic phrases in the local language will allow you to enjoy the experience more deeply if you have any upcoming travel plans.

Here is your sign to make learning a new language your next hobby!

48. Practice Positive Self-Talk

What you tell yourself matters. Self-pep-talk is a way to reassure and validate yourself. This is a great hobby you can practice daily.

Positive self-talk does not have to be limited to just speaking out loud. You can also high-five yourself (I do this after every workout), write out your strengths, reward yourself, or listen to a video that can hype you up.

Say it out aloud- I GOT THIS!

49. Volunteer Your Time 

Volunteering is a great way to give back to your community and boosts your sense of accomplishment. Your 20s are about figuring out your values and your 30s are about living them.

Volunteering is a great hobbies for females in their 30s as you are helping make someone else's life better. First, research the type of volunteering work you would like to do.

50. Listen to a Podcast

Podcast is another great hobby to add to your list. A podcast is the way to go if you are not a reader. Nowadays, there are so many different avenues to listen to a podcast.

Just select your podcast genres and get started.

Hobbies for Women at Home

hobbies for women in their 30s

51. Watch a New Movie

I LOVE watching movies. One of my coworkers made me a list of all American classics (I was raised in India), and it was so fun crossing them off my list.

If you love movies as much as I do, consider making them a regular hobby. You don't need to stay home to watch it. Instead, mix it up and go to the movie theatre or for an outdoor movie night.

52. Organize Your Space

Messy spaces can cause anxiety and stress. You want your area to be nurturing and soothing.

Organizing your space helps you focus and gives you mental peace and a sense of control. You want to add this important life skill to your list of hobbies for women in their 30s.

53. Take a Power Nap

Who does not love a good nap? The goal is not to take a long nap but rather a short power nap that can give you energy. 

A 20-minute power nap has saved me so many times, and I am positive you won't regret adding this to your list of hobbies.

54. Try Bullet Journaling

Journaling is a great way to express your thoughts and emotions. Setting intentional time aside to write can make it a habit and one you enjoy (making it a hobby).

55. Sing a Song

Are you someone that enjoys singing in the shower? Then why not make it a regular hobby? The next time you are in the shower or driving your car, crank up the volume to your favorite song.

56. Play with Makeup 

This is a hobby I added to my list this past year. As I turned 30, I realized I had started to enjoy applying makeup. I get to be messy, precise, bold, or simple- however I feel, and I love that.

There are so many makeup influencers on YouTube that you are guaranteed to find someone that fits your style.

57. Learn to Code

If you love to code, you can definitely make it a side hustle. In this day and age, coding is one of the hottest jobs, and the most amazing part? There are no restrictions when it comes to age.

Anyone can start coding, making it one of the most competitive hobbies for women in their 30s.

58. Binge Watch a TV Show

I sound like a broken record but stay aware of the hustle culture. We are very much a promoter of the 'break culture.' It is more than okay to have days where you are not productive.

Binge-watch a tv show you have been putting off for a while, and I challenge you to enjoy it with all you got.

59. Go Through Your Closet

Going through your closet is a great way to eliminate things you no longer need or bring you joy. This hobby can also take you on a trip down memory lane which can be fun and nostalgic at the same time.

60. Spa Day

Who says you need to spend a lot of money to get a spa-like treatment at home? I like to try out different face masks and oil massages and have my oil diffuser running to create my at-home spa.

If you really want the zen feeling, you can add soothing music and dim the lights.

Mindful Hobbies

hobbies for women in their 30s

61. Ground Yourself

There are SO many ways to ground yourself, and you can find what works best for you when learning how to deal with anxiety or other stressors. What is the 5 Rule for anxiety? It is a 5-4-3-2-1 grounding exercise. When you are anxious, it helps to bring your awareness to the present moment and divert your focus to what is around you.

I practice with my clients frequently, and it can help you too. It is a simple exercise.

62. Cleaning Day

This is my favorite go-to hobby. When I am upset, I clean. When I am happy, I clean. When I am bored, I clean. You get the point, haha.

Like organizing your space, cleaning is similar, but I would take this one step further and focus on deep cleaning your space instead of just organizing.

63. Mindfulness Coloring

Coloring is another great hobby to add to your list. You can find simple mandala pages by just googling your interest, and I am positive you will find a free copy you can print and get started on this hobby.

64. DIY Project

DIY projects are extremely fun and a great way to foster your creativity. It allows you to work with your hands and gives you a sense of accomplishment.

The fun thing about this hobby is that you can create whatever fuels your inspiration. Must-try hobbies for 30s.

65. Try Indoor Plants

If you are anything like me, you LOVE plants and want to learn how to care for them correctly.
There are so many mental health benefits to surrounding yourself with plants. If you are new to being a plant mom, consider trying indoor plants first.

This is a hobby that I am adopting for 2023.

66. Silence Your Devices 

OKAY, hear me out before you decide this isn't a hobby or something you even want to entertain. Most of our day is in front of a screen. This differs from your time on your phone and other smart devices. Your brain is constantly stimulated and needs a break.

Taking a mindful break means allowing yourself to slow down and be conscious of your surroundings. If you constantly go from one form of the screen to another, consider this hobby. Silence your phone for 5-10 minutes and take a breath.

67. Home Decor 

Home decor can be really fun, and there is no better joy than decorating your space.

I love looking at other people's spaces because it is the most genuine reflection of who they are, which is so amazing to see. You don't need to break the bank to make your space look great. There are many places like thrift stores and local shops to spruce up your space.

68. Try Knitting

Learning how to knit is a creative and mindful process. Learn how to knit and make some money selling your items. 

69. Try Pottery

Pottery is a unique hobbies for women in their 30s that you may not have thought of. You can make money with this hobby or engage in a creative process.

70. Aromatherapy

I love aromatherapy. When I have a long day at work, I sometimes make a cup of coffee and diffuse essential oils in the air. It is incredibly relaxing and can boost your mental health.

This is an inexpensive hobby and can be performed in several different ways. If you are frequently stressed or anxious, consider picking up this hobby.

Food & Cooking Hobbies

hobbies for women in their 30s

71. Try a New Restaurant 

Whether you try out a new restaurant or take your friend/partner, this is a great way to put yourself out there and socialize.

My favorite thing about eating at a new restaurant is being exposed to different cultures and their foods. I enjoy the ambiance, new ideas, and other ways of consuming food. Unfortunately, many people need help with eating alone at restaurants. If this is you, I encourage you to find your favorite cuisine and try it out.

72. Learn a New Recipe 

I learned the most about different ingredients and made my food. I became aware of what went into certain dishes and how to alter them for my body.

So many excellent food bloggers share delicious recipes to try out. What I love about this hobby is that the goal isn't perfection. Instead, the goal is to foster social connectedness and creativity. This is one of the most fun hobbies for women in their 30s.

73. Make Your Own Recipe  

To this day, my self-created fusion egg wrap recipe is highly requested by my friends and family.

Similar to learning a new recipe from others, making your own recipe gives you self-confidence, and you have a fun story to share with others.

74. Create a Holiday Recipe

This is an enjoyable hobby you need to add to your list. From creating your cupcakes to making your specialty drink, this hobby allows you to step out of your comfort zone and try new things.

Holidays are when loved ones come together, and you get to create your traditions, so don't be afraid to try something new every year.

75. Take a Cooking Class

Learning how to cook is a life skill. This is not just hobbies for women in their 30s, but for anyone.
Taking a cooking class is a fun way to connect with other people and add a new recipe to your cookbook.

76. Try a Mixology Class

My husband is known for this hobby. He loves to create fresh summer drinks using different herbs.

It is a great way to spend time with your friends, and like any other cooking skill, mixology teaches you ways to step out of your comfort zone and take risks.

77. Grow Your Own Herbs

This is definitely a hobby I am picking up in 2023. Unfortunately, I live in a colder state, so it is hard to grow much of anything. However, now that I live in a house with space for gardening, I am looking forward to summer, when I can grow and care for different herbs.

When I was in my 20s, I didn't care much about gardening, but as I get older, this is another relaxing hobbies for women in their 30s!

78. Bake a Bread

Remember during the pandemic when everyone was making bread? Yes, I am still living that trend. I don't think that will ever go away, making it the perfect hobby to add to your list of 'must try.'

Whether it is banana bread or buttery cornbread, this is the right time to try this out.

79. Learn About Your Family Recipes

Food connects generations. With the holidays, many of us are discussing our family recipes and what was passed down to us. Learning about your family history allows you to choose what you want to continue passing on and give it your spin.

This holiday season, challenge yourself by adopting this hobby and learn about your family recipes.

80. Expand Your Cuisines 

I LOVE food. I love trying different flavors and textures. I like to learn about the history of food and its connection.

Expanding your cuisine goes beyond tasting the food. It grows on your perspectives, willingness to be open to change, and improving your palate. Make a list of different cuisines you would like to try and get out there.

Travel Hobbies

hobbies for women in their 30s

81. Visit a New Country 

Traveling is a great way to change your life for the better. You get to meet interesting people, take a break from your regular day-to-day routine, and learn to see things from a different perspective.

Traveling is a hobby that will challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and try something new. Ultimately, you will be proud of yourself and have something to laugh about.

Whether you want to create meaningful relationships, taste new foods, or develop a new skill, visiting a new country can have life-lasting effects.

82. Visit a New State

Does visiting a new country feel too much? No worries, how about visiting a new state? It allows more control, and you can still reap all the same benefits you would travel to a new country.

So, pack your bags and get going!

83. Learn About a New Culture 

Whether you travel to another country or state, you will experience different cultures, allowing you to learn more about yourself in the process.

What I love about learning about a new culture is that it forces me to think in new ways and, most importantly, understand that there is more than one way of doing something.

As you learn about different cultures, you will understand that even if it isn't, your approach does not make it wrong- there can be more than one approach to life, and there needs to be a willingness to expand your perspective.

This is truly the top of your hobbies for women in their 30s.

84. Meet New People

Your 30s do not have to be limited to the social circle you created in your 20s. This can be a continued time to meet new people and continue building your relationships.

In the world of technology, meeting new people is easier than ever. From trying out a new dance class or visiting your local bookstore, this is another best hobbies for women in their 30s.

85. Visit Your Home Country 

When I moved to the United States, I realized how little I knew about my home country. However, the more I visited, the more I fell in love with it.

Visiting your home country as often as possible is a great way to learn more about your history and continue fostering self-growth.

86. Join a Travel Club

Whether new to traveling or experienced, joining a travel club can have many benefits.
For starters, you get to meet like-minded people who also love to visit new places and are open to new experiences.

You also get insider information on the latest deals, tips & tricks for beginners, and much more!

87. Reflect On Your Travels 

As you travel the world, you must reflect on everything you learned about yourself and others.
What was the best part? What was the worst part? Did you learn anything about yourself? What would you do differently next time?

All these questions foster self-growth and are important to reflect on.

88. Collect Souvenirs 

I love souvenirs. 

It is such a great gift for so many reasons. If your loved ones did not travel with you, giving them a souvenir lets them know you were thinking about them. If you were traveling with a buddy, giving them a souvenir might reflect on them being great travel partners. Finally, collecting souvenirs for yourself is an excellent reminder about your travel history- something you can be proud of.

When you leave a new place, try to see if there is a souvenir you can take back home.

89. Travel With a Group

This has to be another fantastic hobbies for women in their 30s. There are so many groups on social media now that talk about traveling with groups and ways to maintain your safety.

You must travel without people you know and immerse yourself in new people. This fosters social connectedness and a willingness to trust others. Your travel group can be a great place to get started.

90. Solo Trip 

This is on my bucket list for 2023- a solo trip. There is something so liberating and empowering about being able to travel alone. This is a great addition to hobbies for single women in their 30s. 

Everyone, not just women in their 30s, must take a few solo trips. From meeting new people to becoming a decision-maker, solo trips can transform you. While it is normal to worry about risks when traveling alone, there are tons of groups you can join and research before taking off on your next adventure.

Fear should not limit your experiences. Instead, be smart and see the world.

Let's Recap....

I hope you found this list helpful in getting started and serves as a reminder that you are worthy of taking a break and exploring what makes you happy.
