I need a hobby

Howdy. After some health issues, I also needed to find a way to relax and get out of my own head for a bit. Recharge and reset. I started just walking, mostly in the middle of nowhere. Put a podcast or music on, and just walk. Pay attention to the beauty all around. Breathe in, breathe out. I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would, especially on the days I had to force myself out the door. I'm also a huge introvert, but being outside and getting some air did me a world of good. Liked it so much, I started hiking trails. Through that, I met others that enjoy just being outside. Then, I was introduced to the world of kayaking and rafting. I LOVE IT. Never in a million years did I think I'd have the inclination, let alone the opportunity. Now, I can't imagine my life without it. It's been the best therapy on the planet for me, physically, and even more so mentally. My only regret is that I didn't discover this until I was 50.

So just start trying things. When you find something you enjoy, find a community of others with similar interests. Keep an open mind, and don't underestimate yourself. Have some fun, meet some new people, and learn some stuff. Don't be afraid to give something new a chance, AND don't be afraid to move on if something doesn't suit you. You'll likely surprise yourself, and be better for it. :)

GOOD LUCK!
