Breathe in and out—Do you smell that, y’all? It’s the scent of a new season upon us. There’s no better way to celebrate than relaxin’ near the pool and soaking up those rays. Maybe later, go for a walk in the town square and sip some lemonade or sweet tea with friends. These are the smallest activities to do during the day, but what else can we fill our time up with, hm? How about taking up a new pastime. Let’s get this season rolling by discovering a new passion through the ever-evolving list of lazy hobbies anyone can take up this summer.
Start a Sewing Circle
Sewing’s an art that doesn’t require any skill as long as the project isn’t difficult. Gather your friends and family and start a sewing circle. You might have an experienced person leading the group, or maybe y’all enjoy going to classes together to learn.
Whatever the case may be, sewing is a leisure pursuit that brings everyone together to craft something for themselves or a loved one. Consider quilting as your next project to do with each other!
Take Up Journaling
If you find yourself daydreaming or in your thoughts a lot more as the days go by, perhaps it’s time you tried journaling all those thoughts down onto paper. Journaling helps a ton with self-discovery and mapping out our feelings.
The first time I did this, it helped me relearn some of my favorite hobbies and the foods I like to eat. Journal dumping, as others may call it, is a great practice to take up if you don’t have plans this summer.
Collect Something New
Have you ever noticed how many pens you’ve accumulated? I know I have, and it makes me chuckle how so unconsciously I collect these pens. It had me thinking that I should add a section here to encourage you to start your own assortment of items.
I highly recommend collecting these items, y’all:
- Vintage fashion
- Vinyl records
- Old keys
Create a Summer Reading Bucket List
I remember when I made a resolution to read more often, but that promise came and went. It’s not that I forgot or abandoned the pledge, but life became busier. This time, though, I plan to craft a bucket list of books I want to read and discover new ones to read later. Let’s do this challenge together, y’all.
While you wrap up this list of lazy hobbies any person can do this summer, think about your interests first and see what’s something new you can unpack and use as your next fad. The summer is about relaxing and rediscovery—keep these in mind as you learn a new hobby, y’all.
