Fishing has long been the hobby of choice for men who want to get away and have some time to themselves. It’s like it’s been used as an acceptable way for men to meditate and have some “me time”. Now it’s much more common for men and women to do things like yoga and meditation, but fishing is still a relaxing hobby for anyone. The great thing about fishing, as you’ll discover at FlyGuide.Me, is that it has exciting moments too. You might be standing and waiting for long periods, but you also get short bursts of activity when you hook something.

Crafts of All Kinds

Arts and crafts are fantastic for finding some time to yourself, but they also often come with welcoming communities. There are all kinds of things you can try out, from sewing and embroidery to woodwork, metalwork, jewelry making and paper crafts. If you’re not sure where to start, just take a look at a few different things and see what interests you. Some things are easier to start doing at home or teach yourself than others. It’s pretty easy and inexpensive to start doing embroidery, but if you want to do some metalwork, you need the right equipment.

Gardening is another way to start doing something relaxing at home – and you don’t even need to have a garden. Without outdoor space, you could keep plants in your home, whether it’s on a balcony or in your kitchen. Of course, if you do have some outdoor space to use, you can do more with it. There are also other ways to get involved with gardening, including working on an allotment or joining in with a community garden. You could find some volunteer opportunities to find a way to garden too.


If you’re looking for a more active way to relax, hiking or even just going for gentle strolls could work for you. You can go alone or with other people, although you should always make sure that you’re safe if you go hiking alone. Hiking gives you plenty of time and space to be alone with your thoughts, and it can be as gentle or as strenuous as you want it to be. A challenging hike can help you to get out of your head by forcing you to concentrate on your body and what you’re doing.
