Hobbies are great self care. Trying new hobbies as the seasons allow build our list of things we have tried and possibly love to do. Trying new hobbies can be fun and even life changing. The ones you find that are enjoyable can be added to your self care routine.
Do you love being outside during Autumn? I know that I do. Autumn is one of my favorite seasons to get outside and try new things. Soaking up that vitamin D is fantastic for our mental health and immune system. We are going to start off with hobbies that you can do outside.
Whether it is in the woods, on a dirt path, or on a paved path, hiking gets us out into nature. We can breathe in the pure Oxygen released from the trees and plant life around us while feeding our Carbon Dioxide to them. Being in nature is emotionally grounding and feeds our souls. We can either think things through on a hike or just be in the moment. The physical exertion gets our heart rates pumping and ultimately relieves a lot of stress. I cannot think of a better way to see the beautiful colors of the changing leaves than being in them.
You can fish ponds, creeks, lakes, rivers, and oceans. Most of which you will need a license for. I have gone fishing with my bunch in many places. It can be super relaxing or intense, but it has always been fun. The reward is the catch and the quality time you had spent either with friends or with yourself. I can tell you that the best fish I have ever eaten was just caught, especially the barracuda we caught in the Caribbean.
I must say I am a leisurely cyclist. I ride a beach cruiser with a basket and bottle holder on the front with no gears to shift. Joining a cycling group could be a fun way to get a great workout and make new friends. Although I have a leisurely approach, riding my bike is fun. To feel the wind on my face and no constraints of being inside a box. It is so freeing.
This is absolutely a hobby you can do while doing other hobbies. Taking photos of nature, urban landscapes, or people. Have you ever seen something so beautiful or unique that you wished you could take a picture at that moment to share it with the world? I know I have.
I bet you didn’t know this was a hobby. Yes flipping as in flipping cars, furniture, campers, or houses. This hobby takes some skill and some creativity. It could bring you the room or home of your dreams.
This could be an indoor or outdoor hobby. I think that depends on your preference or how warm it is. I have know many people who have taken up painting, and they are all fairly good at it. In fact a couple of my kids have. One of them paints landscapes on canvas, while the other paints Warhammer models. Painting is a relaxing hobby for them and sometimes makes them some extra money.
Trying new hobbies, especially ones that are limited by the season of the year is great for your self care. Carrying them into other months of the year when you can is also great. The idea is to try new things. Keep doing the hobbies you like, and the ones you don’t like, well, maybe try them again next year. I hope you start adding more fun into your self care through hobbies. What is one hobby you intend to try this Autumn?
