9 Unique Hobbies You Can Try This Summer
Ahh, the feeling of summer. It’s warm, it’s fun, and there are so many adventures on the horizon! Even if you have your summer all planned out, it doesn’t hurt to think outside the box. There are so many Unique hobbies you have yet to try.
So why not make a point to integrate a few new ones this summer?
If you need some ideas, here are nine hobbies you’ll find enjoyable. Focusing on new hobbies will no doubt be time well spent!
1. Start Meditating
Meditating works well at getting your mind off what ails you and encourages you to focus on the here and now. Repeat a mantra, if you’d like, such as “breathing into my body, breathing out release.”
Head outside and spend time outdoors while meditating. Using meditation allows you to love yourself without judgment. It can be such a sweet release when you’re dealing with a lot of stress!
2. Use Your Green Thumb to Cultivate a Cannabis Garden
Over the past few years, medical marijuana has become much more widely accepted for everything from anxiety to pain relief. It’s now a lot easier for those who consume cannabis for medical reasons to pursue gardening as a side project. New Jersey, for example, provides medical marijuana cards for dozens of health conditions.
If you’re a marijuana user, having a cannabis garden is a great hobby to try. It’s relaxing and helps you learn more about cannabis in the process.
You can cultivate your garden inside or outside, depending on the sunlight. Growing an indoor garden is the perfect way to master the art of gardening.
Give this relaxing hobby a try, and you’ll have no shortage of cannabis!
3. Get Bendy With Paddleboard Yoga

5. Get Lost in a Book
Summer is perfect for adventures, but make time to relax in between all the fun! One way to chill out is by reading. Novels allow you to have an amazing experience all in the comfort of your home!
To take your reading journey up a notch, invest in a hammock and read outside in your yard. Or, get a cozy chair to sit back and relax on while soaking up some knowledge!
6. Send Some Snail Mail
Letter writing and sending snail mail isn’t as common these days, which is precisely why you should do it!

We all could use a break from smartphones and other technology!
