Hobbies for women in their 20s are both beneficial and essential to one’s well being and living an overall fulfilled life. That’s because, in a society where work and being busy is often the status quo, feminine hobbies give young women in their 20s an avenue to escape.
I’ve been there myself. As an ambitious 20 something woman, I’ve learned from personal experience that it’s dangerously easy to get caught up in the rat race. Perhaps you’ve been there yourself. Struggling to find the balance between work life, love life, and social life. Focusing on everything and everyone except, well, you.
Feminine hobbies for women in their 20’s allow for a break from the troubles of everyday life. Hobbies allow you to pass some time doing something that interests you, simply because it feeds your soul. If you’re looking for a list of hobbies or hobby ideas for women, hobbies for black women (or any woman for that matter), particularly in their 20’s (but who’s counting), you’re in the right place.

If you love taking pictures, instead of spending your time taking selfies (not judging), flip the camera the other way and take beautiful pictures of the people, objects, and places around you. I currently use this Canon camera to take beautiful photos for this blog and make videos for my Youtube channel.
3. Beauty Pageants
I’ve competed in beauty pageants since I was about 15 years old. It’s a hobby that I stumbled into but has absolutely been such a huge part of my life since.
Beauty pageants are an incredible opportunity for young women to develop skills such as poise, public speaking, philanthropy and so much more. It’s also given me the opportunity to travel the world and meet some most amazing women that I remain friends with to this day.
5. Pole Dancing
This is perhaps one of my own personal favorite hobbies. For women of all ages, but for women in their 20’s too. You can look into a dance class like pole dancing or belly dancing in your local area. Or move the furniture out of the way in your own living room and dance like no one’s watching.
Don’t yet have a pole? It’s actually super easy to set up a mini pole dance studio in your own living room or bedroom with a portable pole like this one you can snag on Amazon.
Writing is a great hobby for women in their 20’s because it always you to be expressive and creative. Practice writing creative short stories, or sexy erotic ones. Not so creative? Journaling your thoughts and feelings is a fabulous self-care activity.
