In our busy, modern world, time is precious and, if you’re like most adults, you might find you have very little of it going spare. So, the little time you do have should be enjoyed doing something you love. Not only that, engaging in a hobby or interest can give your mental health a boost and help ward off symptoms of depression.
But what if you don’t have a hobby? Well, fear not, we’ve put together a list of ideas to inspire you to learn a new skill, embrace the outdoors or get creative. Take a look at our list and pick your favorite.
With many local, informal cookery classes popping up, you’re sure to find one nearby where you’ll be able to put your kitchen skills to the test. If you’d rather stick to the comfort of your own home, there are plenty of online options out there, or how about setting up a weekly class and cooking up some delicious recipes with some friends?
Whatever you’re into, there’s bound to be a podcast out there for you! Chat shows, politics, lifestyle, comedies – you name it, you’ll find it. Or, if you want to go that one step further, why not start a podcast of your own? With many platforms available, it’s easy to find one to suit you.
What better way to embrace nature than taking a hike in the outdoors? Explore your local area or take trips to the UK’s National Parks for a chance of scenery.
