There are more pastimes that could qualify as senior hobbies than you can shake the proverbial stick at. The candidates are virtually numberless.
Here are some categories that somebody, somewhere, is already engaging in as a hobby.
Antiques/Arts and Crafts/Collecting any of thousands of things/Cooking/Electronics/Games/Gardening/Internet Hobbies/Literature/Scale Models/Music/Outdoor and Indoor Activities/Photography/Performing Arts/Toys.
The interesting thing about all of the listed categories is each group is chock full of sub categories.
What do you like to do? Do you enjoy playing golf or tennis? Are you an avid grower of flowers? Does stamp collecting start your juices flowing. Is the thought of cooking gourmet meals your answer to friends coming for dinner?
Whatever you are enthusiastic about you will find other people just as eager as you are to learn more and talk about it at length. Some seniors hobbies involve ball room dancing. There are probably groups in your very area doing it on a regular basis. They’d welcome you with open arms, literally.
The physical and mental exercise involved in senior hobbies can do wonders for you. As a matter of fact, physical workouts at a gym, or just walking in the neighborhood can be the answer to your well being.
You’ll be able to meet other seniors feeling just as enthusiastic about your hobby as you are. Once you decide upon a hobby area of interest, check the local newspaper. Look for the mention of gatherings, or information about others doing the same hobby.
Medical science has learned recently about the physical and mental connection in the human body. For example, if the hobby you are interested in requires a minimal of physical activity, you will still benefit physically from the mental activity.
