Ideas for a New Hobby in 2017

It’s the beginning of a new year and that means there is a new opportunity for you to think about starting off a new hobby. Whether you want to kick off with a new health regime or you want to widen your social circle, there is a world of opportunity out there just waiting for you.

Lets take a look at the wide range of activities that are available for you to get involved in:

Cycling – One of the fastest growing sports in the UK since the great recent Olympian success. Not only are more people interested in the Sport, more and more cycle routes have been created and cycling safety is being invested in, making it a great way to get out in the great outdoors, either on your own, with a friend or joining up with one of the many cycling groups that have been set up across the UK.

Golf – Another sport that has been increasing in popularity over recent years. Gone are the days where you had to pay a large membership fee before you could get a game. There are driving ranges and municipal courses all over the place these days and you can always get really cheap deals at clubs that are trying to find new members or if you’re willing to play at a time that isn’t a popular time.

TravellingIt doesn’t have to cost a fortune to experience new places. Try booking train tickets in advance and get out and see all of the amazing places in the UK that you’ve never been to before. You can sometimes find discounts online through sites like Head out into the countryside or take a city break in a place you’ve not visited yet. If you don’t try places out, you’ll never know what you’re missing. Use resources like TripAdvisor to gauge great places, good value accommodation and popular restaurants.

Learn a New LanguageLearning a new language can be really fun, whether you’re thinking of taking a holiday to Italy and want to pick up some of the language before you go or you simply want to broaden your horizons, learning a new language can be a fantastic hobby.

Art and DesignThere are many different ways to get into creative activities from joining an art class to teaching yourself to use software packages like Photoshop. Drawing can be a very therapeutic and if you want to draw outdoor sketches then it also gives you the opportunity to get outside and take in some beautiful scenery.

CookingIf you always fancied honing your culinary skills then make 2017 the year that you turn it into a reality. Make it even more fun by inviting friends for a “ComeDine With Me” style evening to mix it into your social life.
