There’s nothing better than something new and exciting to do in your spare time. The effort spent learning and improving feels accomplishing and can actually add value to your days and your skill-set. Pick up one of these hobbies and try it out on the weekends!
Getting back outdoors is something most of us could use. It gives you the opportunity to disconnect from the ultra-fast-paced world we live in. Improving your shelter set up, sleeping in the wild, and cooking over an open fire is something many men crave. There is nothing more masculine and relaxing than a weekend in the woods.
2. Canoeing & Kayaking
A day out on the water kayaking or canoeing can be very rewarding. Plus, everyone can do it. You can find a gentle stream, rapids, or a nice lake to adventure on. You will also receive a fantastic workout from paddling from location to location.
3. Car Collecting
Car collecting is one of the more expensive hobbies you can get into, but it’s a no-brainer for people who are passionate about cars. Finding the right car, caring for it, and driving them on the weekend will require considerable time, money investment, and effort. There are many car clubs and events around every major city that prove why car collecting is such a valuable hobby.
4. Car Racing
It turns out you won’t have to have a formula one race car to get into this competition. Most cities have boxcar, stock cars, and other inexpensive race cars that you can start off with. Also, you can find race nights where amateurs can race their personal cars. Racing can be a very worthwhile hobby and you can even find racing schools to take lessons at.
5. Car Restoration
Becoming a mechanic is a job, but restoring a car from the ground up is a passion. Turning a beat-up hunk of metal into a shining powerhouse is something you can be proud of for a lifetime. You might not be able to do everything by yourself, but it can give you years of enjoyment before the product is finished.
6. Cartooning & Animation
Creative people love this hobby because it effortlessly combines art with fantasy. The only thing that limits you and your creation is your imagination. It’s extremely relaxing, a great form of self-expression, and you can put your art on Instagram or YouTube to show others what you’re made of.
7. Ceramics & Pottery
Pottery and ceramics are one of the most ancient art forms on the planet, and it can be highly enjoyable. They give you a chance to express yourself creatively and reduce stress levels. You will improve your focus, have full creative freedom, and it also gives you a new place to socialize and meet new friends.
Playing chess can spark creativity and help you unleash your originality since it activates the right side of the brain. Chess also requires fast thinking and problem-solving on the fly because your opponent is constantly changing the play. Plus, it’s a great way to show your friends who is “the boss.”
9. Cigar Smoking
Any cigar enthusiast has their favorite cigar and cigar lounge. Whether it’s a luxury bar in a foreign city or a club down the street where you meet up with friends. Cigars can be less toxic than cigarettes as you shouldn’t be inhaling and you won’t be smoking many cigars in one day. You will also want a cigar box with a humidor.
Coaching a sport can be one of the most fulfilling ‘jobs’ you’ve ever experienced. It can help keep you young, stay close to the sport you love, and your success becomes others’ success as you work together as a team. It also helps you become a mentor to young children, and create moments and memories that shape their lives, as well as your own.
