How to Use Self Storage to Start a Hobby in the New Year

Starting a new hobby is something we all daydream about, no more so than when a new year comes round. With 2020 starting with a bang, we thought we’d shed a little light on how a self storage unit can help you kickstart things like nothing else. Here’s everything you need to know.

Clear space at home to start your home workout room

Clearing space is what a self storage unit does best, so why not jump straight in and turn your new empty room into your much talked about home workout room? All you need is a yoga mat, some dumbbells and a rowing machine and you’ll be all set. Train at the same time each day and by the end of the week you’ll have made exercise an integral part of your routine that you couldn’t imagine life without. Ideal if you want to look and feel better than you have in years.

Or turn your storage unit into your own CrossFit gym

If you want to go even further, why not double check your self storage contract and see if you can turn it into a dedicated CrossFit gym? With space for a power rack and bench press, you’ll be able to take training to the next level whilst giving yourself the time and space you need to really double down on your lifts. Just what you need if you’re going to be able to push your peak performance levels to incredible new heights.

Use it as a crafting studio

New hobbies aren’t all about getting fitter and stronger, so why not exercise the creative part of your brain? The great thing about using your self storage unit as a crafting studio is it’s going to be so much quieter and calmer than trying to concentrate at home. By giving yourself the space you need to really master your craft, you’ll find your skills come on leaps and bounds before you know it.

Get artistic now you have the time and space

By having enough space to let your artwork dry away from the kids and those bothersome pets, your self storage unit allows you to really immerse yourself in your new hobby. You’re never going to have the stress of having to ask people over and over again to keep their distance, and you won’t feel like the family are watching over your shoulder as you try and get good at something.

Use it as a quiet space to get truly creative

Finally, why not use it as a quiet space where you can put pen to paper without any of the distractions you typically face at home? By being able to sit and think without interruption, you’ll find that you can make so much more progress than you otherwise would be able to. That way you could embark on a career as a ghost writer, copywriter, or even pen the next great novel if that’s where your heart lies. The choice really is up to you.
