The last few years have been stressful to say the least, with many of us being far more isolated and sedentary that we were previously! The pandemic had severe impacts on our movement, social lives, and how we spend our spare time, so it’s no surprise that now we have a lockdown-free summer, hobby activities are making a comeback! If you’re looking for a new hobby to fill some free time with, check out this short list for some inspiration:
The ultimate time filler! Nothing says relaxed leisure time like getting stuck into a fantastic novel. Whether your ideal world is high school drama, fantasy lands filled with magic and dragons, or bloody inner city murder mystery, you can’t go wrong with a well-written epic to take you out of your own story for a while.
Learn a Language
The world has dozens of major languages and hundreds of minor ones, with countless regional dialects and variations. So why stick to the only one you know? Whether for business or pleasure, learning a language can be a fun and rewarding process, and can yield some awesome benefits. Knowing a second language is a very marketable skill, especially the languages most commonly used in business like English, Spanish, and Mandarin.
Learn To Play an Instrument
Just like world languages and fiction novels, musical instruments is another hobby that will allow you to find the best version for yourself. There are numerous different musical instruments that have been invented and refined across the world. From the Western standards like guitar, drums, and piano, to the more obscure lute or French horn, you’re sure to find the perfect instrument for you!
Go To a Paint and Sip Class
What better way to relax than with a glass of wine and a paintbrush? Sip and Paint events offer a wonderful way to relax during your free time, with a laid-back and social environment to allow you to build on your painting skills, have fun, meet new friends, and take home your own gorgeous artwork at the end of the night!
