    Hi, I think I work too much. I did really well at AS and now im going into A2 but I feel like I have no real hobbies and I am not a very happy person. I already made a thread about getting an instrument but I was just wondering if anyone else feels the same and any hobbies you enjoy to make you happier and have fum. Sorry I am using this as an outlet to release thoughts.

    I'm at uni now, but when I was doing A Levels I continued with existing hobbies (golf, piano, football...) as a break from revision. If you find a sport, instrument or other hobby that you enjoy, you can use it as a reward for a given time of revision or work.

    Yeah a sport and an instrument really helps you take your mind of things and take a break from work! I play the guitar and play football as well as karate. These things give me a little break in the week and refreshes my mind for school!

    Thanks guys for the advice. I realise I do this thing where I start things and don't follow the up e.g. I'm in a play and a book club that are relatively new and I haven't spent any time with those so I think I am going to try to see if those can be my hobby first. If not, I will learn to play the guitar as I am eager. I have an exercise bike at home so I usually go on that as my daily exercise. Question for guitar players: how did you learn? Did you have lessons/used a book/youtube/other? If you used a book or youtube any links to what you used would be helpful if you remember.

    I play the cornet generally to try and get out of the "work" mood. I think its also good that you put away set times where you will not do revision / work for a levels. Like just say, ok I tonight I will spend 1 hour watching tv or somet like that. Just so you are not constantly working.

    Thats a good idea thanks. tbf when i say i have no hobbies it means it just watch too much netflix. I do work too much though so hopefully I will cut down as I was going through lots of issues with friends which has died down alot
