Hobbies are super important for everyone.
They take your mind off work and other stresses, introduce you to new people, teach you new skills, give you a sense of purpose and most importantly, allow you to have a good time!
If you're struggling for time or simply don't know which hobby will suit you, then we have put together a list of fun hobbies for you to try this year.
Great For: Being adventurous, learning new skills, improving discipline, enjoying the outdoors and making friends.
Do you fancy being a real-life Robin Hood?
When people think of hobbies, archery isn't usually the first one that springs to mind, but this hobby is a super fun one to try.
Of course, there is a lot of skill involved. You must be disciplined with your arch; if you invest time and effort into this hobby, you're bound to see improvements and reap the rewards.
The key to this hobby is to start slow. Join an archery club and make friends with like-minded men. It's essential to take care of your physical health while trying out this specialised sport, so seek professional guidance when you begin.

Great For: Clearing your mind, enhancing your creativity and expressing your feelings.
Do you have a lot of thoughts running around your head? Finding it hard to rest at the end of the day?
Writing is a great way to clear your mind. Whether you have a story to tell, an idea to jot down or are a mastermind in a particular subject - it's time to get it down on paper.
Whether you like articles, blogs, poems, short stories, scripts or full-blown novels, writing a little every day can help your ideas become a reality.
Great For: Making friends, enjoying the outdoors, travelling and refreshing your mind.
Cycling has so many health benefits and is a great way to get outdoors and see the world.
The great thing about cycling is that it's pretty easy to get started as long as you can ride a bike (or are willing to learn). Your physical stamina will improve with every cycling session, and you're sure to make like-minded friends along the way.
