Do you play an instrument? Take up group lessons? Or take up open mic nights.

Join a book group. Join an athletics club. Play dodgeball at the local trampoline park.

Join a walking group. Start a craft project.

You literally have limitless options.

Hi there,

I wrote quite a long post related to this topic here: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...4#post73082938

Honestly though we cannot tell you which hobby to pick up. You need to figure that out for yourself.


To start, take a look through one or more of these big lists of hobbies (the first website's particularly good):

http://discoverahobby.com/listofhobbies
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_hobbies
http://www.stormthecastle.com/the-list-of-hobbies.htm
http://www.notsoboringlife.com/list-of-hobbies

Go through every single hobby on the list, top to bottom, and split them into two categories:

1) Hobbies that really do not appeal and I cannot see myself doing.
2) Hobbies I'd be willing to give a try.

Once you've made and are happy with your shortlist, go to taster sessions. See what appeals. See what you enjoy doing. Then once you've found something you can develop a passion for, start doing it every week and stick to it long term.


Tip: throw all preconceived ideas you have about "girl sports" and "boy sports" out of the window. They're complete rubbish. Nobody gives a care in the world what sports/hobbies you like, and you certainly won't be the only person of your gender/sexuality/race/whatever doing that sport. It's okay to be nervous, but don't let anything hold you back from trying out any of the sports you want. No matter who you are it's okay to enjoy Latin and Ballroom dancing, or women's rugby, ballet, horse riding, bowling, tennis, yoga, bridge, chess, reading, knitting, LARPing, debating, lacrosse, ... honestly anything.

Just keep an open mind, make a shortlist of sports/hobbies you like the sound of, go to some taster sessions (it's normal to be nervous!), don't let anything hold you back & keep persevering with the hobbies you enjoy

All the best,

Richard

P.S. I picked up ballet as an absolute beginner whilst at university. I was super nervous for my first lesson & even chose a male ballet teacher so I knew I wouldn't be the only guy in the room. I had nothing at all to worry about though, it didn't make a jot of difference who you were: everyone was far too focused on improving their own technique to worry about anyone else. I've had a great time.
