Popular Hobbies Starting with Letter Y

The world is full of people with different hobbies. Some love to go for long walks, while others can’t stand the idea of leaving their couch. Others enjoy knitting or cooking, while others prefer not to do anything at all except maybe watch TV.

No matter what your hobby is, it’s important that you find one that fits your personality and preferences in order to get the most enjoyment out of it! That doesn’t mean you have to give up on an activity just because it doesn’t seem like something you would typically enjoy – but if there are other things in life you’d rather be doing rather than pursuing a certain hobby, then, by all means, don’t force yourself into doing something you don’t want to do.

That being said, there are certain hobbies out there that might seem like they would fit your personality but actually don’t. The following are five hobbies that might sound good on paper but that you should avoid if you want to have fun!


By looking at the activity itself, this hobby seems rather harmless enough – after all, it’s just using a yo-yo, right? Well yes and no: the problem is in the way people play with them. Instead of seeing it as a toy (i.e., something light and easy to maintain), too many see it as a competitive sport.

If you’re not one of those who can claim themselves “amazing” at playing with a yo-yo, then you could get discouraged very quickly because chances are you won’t be able to do any trick that other people can.


There’s nothing wrong with doing yoga every once in a while if it helps your muscles stretch and your body relaxes – but if it becomes your main hobby, that’s when things get problematic.

First of all, it takes up an awful lot of time (trust us on this one). Second, because yoga is usually done in an isolated place, it would make getting fit or achieving better health rather difficult. Thirdly, the price for yoga lessons might become prohibitively expensive… not to mention how boring it could get after taking the same class over and over again! Yodeling

If you’re familiar with yodeling, it’s because you’ve probably heard someone yodel before – or maybe even have tried doing it yourself. Yodeling is great fun the first few times, but after a while, you’ll get tired of listening to your own voice and could end up hurting your throat.

After all, what’s the point of shelling out money on lessons when there are so many other things you can spend money on?


Being a YouTuber requires setting up at least one camera, filming many different scenes, editing them together… in short: lots of time and effort! If you only have time to watch videos online, then there’s no sense in trying to be part of the group that creates them.

Plus, you wouldn’t be able to interact with the people who watch your videos, and there’s a lot of fun to be had in talking back and forth with viewers!
