by | Jan 10, 2022 | Featured List | 0 comments

Are you getting bored from doing nothing at home? Trying to get over a heartbreak and want to find something new to do? We’ve just got the thing for you! Here are some hobbies that you may want to try when looking for something new to try out.

1. Rock Climbing

Want the thrill of adventure in a safer, more controlled scene? Maybe rock climbing is a hobby for you. If it isn’t evident from the name itself, rock climbing is a hobby when people climb some rock formations on a wall. The goal of rock climbing is often to reach the summit or the top of the wall.

Rock climbing can give you many challenges that you may face along the way. However, if you’re afraid of heights, you may want to rethink this hobby since you’ll often need to slide back down once you reach the top.

2. Horseback Riding

Horseback riding can be a fun experience for many, especially those that love adventure and “outdoorsy stuff.” If you become good at it, perhaps you may even go into equestrianism, a sport of horseback riding. There are three primary horse riding styles: Western, English, and Group. Having a better understanding of the different styles, the tack used, and the type of horses used will help you choose which type of horse riding you may prefer.

Aside from learning how to ride a horse, forming a new bond with the horse is also one of the reasons you may want to venture into horseback riding. In the book Leo and The Spirit of Golden Boy by Edith, it is evident that being able to bond with a horse is possible and one of the reasons why people could fall in love with horses.

3. Backpacking

Backpacking is a form of traveling, but it is often more affordable, causing you to stay in an area for a longer period. It allows you to immerse yourself in a new place entirely. Through backpacking, you can immerse yourself in a new culture – learn a new language, taste new food, experience celebrations, and so much more. 

Backpacking is a fantastic way to see the world since it allows you to explore a place without the tours and guides. While the usual form of traveling is more tourist-focused, backpacking allows you to discover on your own the beauty of a particular place. Compared to traveling, backpacking lets you keep all your personal belongings in one backpack, which allows you to go anywhere your luggage would otherwise prevent you from going.

4. Fishing

For those who love peace and quiet, fishing is a new hobby you may want to try out. The beauty of fishing is that you can choose anywhere you want to go. You may go to a small lake and camp afterward in a nearby cabin, or you may want to go to the ocean or to a cliff-end of a beach, depending on what sights you prefer to see and what is most convenient and affordable to you at a specific time. 

Regardless of where you choose to go, the vast body of water often gives you a new sense of calm and clears your thoughts of any worries you may have. Moreover, fishing can also be done with your friends! Fishing is the perfect way to catch up with your old friends or to bond with old family members.

5. Kayaking

Kayaking is an activity that involves using a double-bladed paddle to move a small water vessel. It is also a hobby for you to meet other people and build lasting relationships over time. The bond that many kayakers share builds camaraderie and strengthens friendships. Moreover, kayaking is open to various people and is also done by people with disabilities.

Contrary to common belief, kayaking is not as hard to learn as most people think. Only a few basic skills need to be practiced to learn to paddle effectively. Kayaking gives you the ability to be closer to nature and see sights that only very few can witness in their lifetimes. 

6. Knitting

For those who like staying at home and enjoy spending time with themselves, knitting is the way for you to go. However, if you are not very fond of knitting, you may want to try out knitting’s siblings – crochet, cross-stitching, and embroidery. There are so many online tutorials to teach you how to do basic techniques. Moreover, it also allows you to make personalized items that you can gift to yourself, family, and friends.
