1 Take up a Sport
With the pandemic still looming, many people have found it as an opportunity to start working on their fitness. There are many sports that you can take up as a hobby. A few include running, hiking, cycling, tennis, basketball or football. Try a few out to see which ones you like.
Head down to your local art supplies store and grab some paint, brushes and canvases and get your creative juices flowing. Paint by numbers is a great alternative for beginners or if you are feeling a little more adventurous, try painting from reference. Get the family involved and have a day getting creative together.
Why not dabble in some upcycling. You can turn some old tired furniture into some new treasures. Take a look at your dining chairs or sofa and see if you can make them look brand new.

Suppose you have always wanted to learn an instrument, then why not start now. There are many to choose from, guitars and piano seem to be the favourite choice for beginners.

Gather all your bookworm friends and start a book club. You can then meet once a week over zoom to discuss what you liked and disliked about the book and what other books to read next.

To feel less stressed, take up yoga or mindfulness. Practicing these each day can make you feel grounded and relaxed for the day. There are many online courses or videos you can watch to get you started.
