Reading gardening cooking dancing meditating volunteering listening to music yoga- sorry I’m old, forgot the other too. Not that great of a list. Very run of the mill- I say add painting, woodworking, sculpture, take a stained glass class, go to a community college and sign up for something cool- crocheting, gather old t- shirts cut out favorite designs and make a quilt or take you r kids/ grandkids t shirts and do that. Build a chicken coop and get a few chickens 🐓 hope that helps. 🙂
I’m glad the study has dancing in it. I would add Square Dancing specifically because it’s something you actively have to read and study to be proficient. Also, an evening of Square Dance is equivalent to about a 5 mile walk. It takes team work, and listening skills to say the least.
None of my favorite activities were on the list. I build model airplanes, practice martial arts (4th degree black belt in taekwondo) and own three telescopes.
I just adopted a stray tiger striped cat. I named her Tigger. I’ve had her a couple of weeks now and kept thinking “Boy she’s really gaining weight.” Well turns out she’s pregnant so having a pet is great hobby for me.
Can’t wait to see how many she has!
I would add journaling, especially if one lives alone. It’s a great way to express thoughts and emotions that might not have another outlet. It can be themed for gratitude, setting goals or anything else.
I bead and enjoy it very much! Surprised that or sewing not on the list. Beads make me very happy.
