If you’re a student or teacher or have any lengthy periods off work, then the summer holidays can often seem super long and can eventually get a little boring.

This time is perfect for trying out some new hobbies that you might end up loving or being really good at! So, here is a list of 7 hobbies you need to try this summer!
I always have and always will think that learning any instrument is not only a great skill to have, but also a super fun and therapeutic hobby. Piano is one of the most captivating instruments that truly do produce music like no other and being able to play it would be absolutely incredible. So get those lessons booked and put this on your list of hobbies you need to try.
2. Pottery Painting
Most cities have quaint little shops where you can go and enjoy painting various pieces of pottery, including crockery, jugs and mugs. This is a super therapeutic hobby that allows you to spend some time alone getting some mental clarity or have fun with a big group of friends. As an added bonus, you can build up a beautiful collection of personally painted pottery, each with its own little story.
Any sort of exercise is such an incredibly beneficial hobby and everyone should try something. Running, circuit training, rowing, cycling or even just taking long walks in the countryside. Not only does exercise release endorphins resulting in a happier mood, but it can also be a good chance to spend some time alone and improve your mental health and get fit at the same time.
Yoga is a perfect opportunity to improve your fitness, meditate and up your flexibility. Yoga has an amazing community feel and theres so many different types of yoga that are beneficial for different reasons, so there really is something for everyone. Hot yoga is also a great, more intense type of yoga. If you don’t fancy passing out the pounds for a yoga class, simply follow an at home yoga class on Youtube; there is so many out there, all qualified and easy to follow.
Gardening is a perfect, easy hobby that you can do when you want and however much you want. Getting out in the garden, soaking up the sun whilst also making your garden look summer ready is an ideal combination really, so why not give it a go.
Art of any sort, in fact, is a super fun, therapeutic hobby that can really be a form of meditation and an opportunity to express your feelings. Often, people use art as a visual diary and it can help get your creative juices flowing. So why not pick up a pencil or paintbrush and see what you can come up with!
You could try starting a blog, writing articles or even attempt writing a book! Writing is super fun and is a way to express yourself sufficiently and can also be super creative. A personal blog is the perfect hub for sharing things such as personal stories, your personal work or articles and short stories. Why not try any of these things and who knows, you might even come up with something good! Writing is one of the hobbies you need to try this summer.
