Incredible Hobbies for Adrenaline Averse Folks

Everyone should have a hobby. Isn’t that what everyone says? Whenever you are getting someone to know, one of the first thing you ask them is what is their hobby. Sure, many people must have asked you the same. And if your answer was: zoning out in front of the TV, listening to music while scrolling through your Instagram, working out, or clicking filtered selfies on Snapchat; then you better keep on reading.

Certainly, may have made your internet and streaming entertainment fantastic, but that doesn’t mean you have to confine yourself to it, or to dancing, singing, reading, cooking and any other overly-endorsed hobby for that matter.

If you are looking for a hobby but not of the adrenaline-rush kind, then go ahead.

1. Clubbing With Books

If you want to foster your reading habit, then book clubs are a great place to start with. Book clubs are a good way to get yourself to venture into genres that you would never read otherwise, discuss your favorite books with fellow readers, hone your literary debating skills, and also there are reading deadlines that will prompt you to read regularly.

Book clubs are a flurry of social activity, you can even organize the book club meeting at your place or anywhere else and have fun.

2. Be the Puppeteer

If you have a flair for craft and theatre then puppetry is an amazing hobby you can take. You can choose from a dozen types of puppets such as sock puppets, marionettes, finger puppets, pull-string puppets, finger puppets, shadow puppets, etc.

You can develop elaborate characters for a story, give each character their unique facial features, clothes, and props. This entire endeavor is going to take your creativity to the next level.

If you are fond of acting, it doesn’t always have to mean that you have to dedicate your career to it. You could be a teacher or an accountant, and still, have acted as a fun and engaging hobby. You could write short scripts and showcase your stellar acting skills to your friends or family, even become a vlogger.

You can even turn it into a group activity, get your friends or family to act on an elaborate and humorous script. Record them and have fun watching them. Also, social issues can be highlighted via your hobby and get these posted on social media.

Trust us, you don’t need an expensive camera or a professional editor for that, just get a good phone camera and user-friendly video-editing software like Filmora Wondershare.

4. Be Brainy With Puzzles and Legos

If you like to move your brainy gears in motion even in your free time, get yourself those puzzles or legos. You can find a single set of puzzles with tens of thousands of pieces; it will take you weeks of wringing your brain to put all the puzzle pieces in place.

Whereas with legos you have room for creativity, build anything you like with different brick combinations. The challenge is invigorating and the end results just as satisfying.

5. Make Animals Happy

If you have a very soft and squishy spot for animals, you can embark on a rescue mission for stray animals. Often, we come across stray cats or dogs that end up at our door-step and are really hungry or even hurt sometimes. It might not be always possible to take all the strays in but you can place food and water for them near your home, so they are at least fed.

Mind you that these stray animals would be swarming your house to get your love and attention. The same could be done for the birds, and who knows, you could end up like Sekar, the Birdman of Chennai.

6. Embrace The Artisan In You

If you love making things, anything that makes you feel like the ultimate maestro, do it: crafting, baking, candle-making, soap-making, doll-making, pottery or jewelry-making.

Anything that makes you feel exuberant and excited, not frustrated and overwhelmed; remember, it is a hobby, not a competition. Whichever art you feel that you have a flair for it, go for it. Even if you don’t have the least bit idea about where to begin, start from scratch.

Even if you are bad at it, who cares? It’s your hobby, you are doing it for yourself. But, if you keep on going, you will not be clumsy at it forever, eventually, you will learn the skill along with the lessons of patience, persistence, and discipline.
