Whether you want to pick up a new hobby or want to rediscover the fun in things you already do, below are some channels that would convince you to go for it—and at the same time help you do it!

Niche: Productivity Hacks
Weaving in self-improvement practices into our everyday routine is pretty important. But, it can also be a bit challenging to navigate around. What exactly should you do, anyway? Well, why not let Hannah Pangilinan help you out? The 21-year-old content creator has quite a lot of wise things to share in her aesthetically pleasing videos. She’s been dabbling in journaling, bucket listing, as well as creating routines that work for her—which notably goes beyond the regular routines as she even has one dedicated to doing a life reset. Plus, she has a series of videos where she runs down on all the things she’s learned every year!
Niche: Fitness and Wellness
Coming from a place where she struggled with body image and not-so-healthy eating patterns, Jo Sebastian, now a registered nutritionist-dietitian, specializes on workout content that ranges from full-body workouts to those focused on specific body parts. What’s more, she shares healthy recipes and even talks about different things about nutrition! At present, Jo is also a wellness speaker and a coach on the exercise app Rebel.
In school, Aji Quiambao is a Behavioral Science student. On YouTube, she’s Aji who explores the world of makeup! She has since made videos of her trying out different Korean-inspired looks—from that of a K-pop idol and K-Drama lead Lim Jugyeong from True Beauty down to the everyday looks of Korean girls—along with other transformation videos, among other things!
Caring for plants has been an enduring quarantine trend. If you’re scared of trying it out in fear of not being able to care for them properly, you can turn to Sam’s Halaman, which is run by Sam who also picked up this hobby not long ago! There, she gives walkthroughs on raising various plants, as well as tips on potting and propagating. She also shares videos of her plant hauls and of her own garden, which might just inspire you to grow your own plant collection at home.
