June Holidays That Could Help You Find The Perfect Hobby
It has become quite apparent that more and more people are looking for a worthwhile hobby to occupy their free time. During the COVID-19 pandemic, many people decided to take on a number of different hobbies that they hadn’t done before. This included things such as baking and cooking, gardening, arts and crafts, reading and writing, gaming, and doing home improvements.
Hobbies allow people to enrich their lives in ways they never imagined were possible. That’s why we want people to continue to discover themselves through the adoption of new and exciting hobbies. With that intention in mind, allow us to introduce everyone to some June holidays that will allow some people to find the perfect hobby for them.
National Pen Pal Day (June 1st)
In our current digital era, the idea of a pen pal is almost laughable. Having a pen pal can be an exciting way to connect with people from different backgrounds and different cultures.
There are a variety of different online penpal websites that people can visit to start on their journey. Having a pen pal can be a great way for a person to extend their social circle as well, and do it without having to put themselves too far out there.
National Trails Day (First Saturday in June)
This holiday was first proposed by the American Hiking Society in the early 1990s, and there’s a good reason why it’s been around for so long. Hiking is a great hobby that can refresh a person both physically and mentally.
It allows people to improve their cardiovascular health and improve their overall physical fitness, allows them to reconnect with nature, and provides them with a sense of exploration and adventure. When you put it that way, who could resist hiking their favorite trail?
National Gardening Exercise Day (June 6th)
Gardening is another great hobby for people to adopt. As the name of this holiday suggests, it’s also a great way to get some exercise as well. People who garden on a regular basis also tend to have lower stress levels than people who don’t. Why not give it a try and let us know how it goes?
International Axe Throwing Day (June 13th)
Yes, we know that axe throwing is commonly seen as something that lumberjacks do, or as an activity performed at certain bars and restaurants. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t adopt this sport as a hobby in your own backyard. Axe throwing actually takes a lot of skill, so it’s certainly something that you can do in your spare time. And if your skills improve, you may actually be able to enter a competition and earn some money from it.
National Sewing Machine Day (June 13th)
Technically speaking, this holiday celebrates sewing machines, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t use it as an excuse to buy your own machine and take up sewing as a hobby.
Sewing gives you a chance to express your creativity, allows you to customize and personalize your clothing, and can even help you connect with other people. Besides, being able to mend your own clothing will likely fill you with a sense of pride and self-sufficiency that can’t be achieved by practicing any other hobby.
Nature Photography Day (June 15th)
Nature photography is a fun hobby that allows people to connect with nature and fosters a sense of creativity and self-expression. This hobby is also great for exploring different natural habitats, flora, and fauna. Finally, nature photography provides people with a sense of self-reflection and contemplation.
World Juggling Day (Saturday Closest To June 17th)
Juggling is an activity that everyone should at least try once in their lives. Mastering the art of juggling can take a long time, but there’s no doubt that even trying to juggle is fun. It can help you calm your thoughts and may even help develop some hand-eye coordination.
National Go Fishing Day (June 18th)
It’s estimated that approximately 10% of the population fishes for pleasure. That means that there are over 220 million people who fish as a hobby. Whether you’re sitting on a dock with your fishing line in the lake or you’re out on the water in a boat, fishing is wonderfully reflective and relaxing.
Go Skateboarding Day (June 21st)
Skateboarding isn’t for everyone. It requires time, patience, and a certain degree of physical prowess to skateboard at any level. But if you’re brave enough, you can adopt skateboarding as a hobby and see if you can become skilled at it. Even if you don’t, we’re sure that the journey is going to be an entertaining one.
That does it for us, folks. We hope that the above June holidays help to get people thinking about some of the hobbies they might want to start trying.
