Hobbies are something that many of us associate with children. The majority of kids have some sort of activity that they’re invested in and that they engage with on a regular basis. But the coronavirus and Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted, for many of us, that hobbies can be great for adults too. As many of us have been spending increasing amounts of time indoors and within our own homes, we have grown bored and have started picking up different things to do and to occupy our time. Sure, with the rollout of the vaccine, the world may well be getting back to normal. But that shouldn’t mean that our hobbies simply disappear! They can bring joy and entertainment to our lives, so why not expand your horizons and try even more? Here are a few that you might enjoy!
Different Forms of Exercise
We all know that we need to exercise to lead a healthy lifestyle. But all too many of us think we just don’t enjoy exercise. The truth is, many of us try exercises that we don’t enjoy and fail to commit to them. Instead, if you find something you like and look forward to, it becomes pretty easy to get that recommended one hundred and fifty minutes of moderate aerobic exercise, or seventy five minutes of vigorous aerobic exercise a week. If you enjoy the gym, it’s fine to go ahead with this. It gives you a safe and sheltered environment to work out in with all sorts of equipment. But remember that there are other options out there too. Some options include:
- Swimming – a great, all round workout that is easy on the joints.
- Yoga – a holistic exercise that can simultaneously teach mindfulness.
- Ballet – a dance form that is great for strength, balance and flexibility.
- Cycling – a way to exercise while seeing local beauty spots.
- Team Sports – a great way to work out and socialise at the same time.
Motorsports can sound daunting, but it’s actually pretty accessible. Just take a look at Switchback Motorsports. They have all sorts of vehicles and machines that you can invest in to get on the road and safely enjoy driving, riding and more. There can often be a big social element to motorsports too, seeing many like minded people meet up for drives and longer road trips.
Cookery and Baking
We all cook on a day to day basis to provide ourselves with our meals. But when’s the last time you put some effort into trying out some new recipes, honing your knife skills and maybe whipping up a dessert? Cooking and baking are great skills that leave you with a delicious treat at the end. There are countless cooking accounts on social media, free recipes online and video tutorials on Youtube. These will all help you get started out in the right direction.
Of course, the hobbies that appeal to you will largely be determined by your individual interests and preferences. But hopefully, at least one of those outlined above will stand out to you and give you something interesting to do!

I used to be so closed off to trying new things due to fear of what others would think. But you don’t truly know if you are interested in something until you try it and there is so much joy in finding something you love
