June Holidays That Will Help Some People 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.
With people spending so much time indoors, they needed to find a way to entertain themselves, so they looked inside themselves and decided what would be the most fulfilling to them. We think that this period of time gave a lot of people a different perspective on their lives. It made them realize that there’s more to life than just focusing on work.
Hobbies allow people to enrich their lives in ways they never imagined were possible. And 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.
Although we can’t guarantee that the following list has a hobby that everyone will enjoy, we do know that some people are going to want to check out the following holidays and try out the hobbies these holidays represent. Let’s get to it!
National Penpal Day (June 1st)
I know there are probably some people who are reading the title of this holiday and are immediately rolling their eyes, but hear us out. Having a pen pal can be an exciting way to connect with people from different backgrounds and even 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. And that’s why it has appeared on this list.
National Trails Day (First Saturday in June)
This is a holiday that 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 it’s put 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 tend to have lower stress levels than people who don’t, so there’s that benefit as well. So perhaps taking some time to dig in the dirt is a great hobby for people to enjoy. 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 something that bar and restaurant patrons do at certain bars and restaurants that provide it as an activity. However, that doesn’t mean that people can’t adopt this sport as a hobby in their own backyard. Axe throwing actually takes a lot of skill, so it’s certainly something that people can do in their spare time. And if their skills improve, they 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 people can’t use it to buy their own machines and take up sewing as a hobby. Sewing gives people a chance to express their creativity, allows them to customize and personalize their clothing, and can even help them 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 another holiday 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. And the final thing that nature photography does is provide 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. Sure, not everyone is going to want to take the time required to become good at juggling, but even trying to do it can be a positive experience. It can help people calm their thoughts and may even help develop some hand-eye coordination.
National Go Fishing Day (June 18th)
It’s estimated that in developed countries, approximately 10% of the population fishes for pleasure. That means that there are over 220 million people who fish not for survival, but as a hobby. That alone should make people wonder more about this holiday. What’s so great about fishing that attracts so many people? Well, maybe it’s time to find out by adopting this hobby.
Go Skateboarding Day (June 21st)
Let us start by saying that skateboarding isn’t for everyone. It requires time, patience, and a certain degree of physical prowess to skateboard at any level. Of course, people can adopt skateboarding as a hobby and see if they can become skilled at it. Even if they don’t, however, we’re sure that the journey is going to be an entertaining journey.
That does it for us, folks. We hope that the above June holidays help to get people thinking about some of the holidays they might want to start trying. While not every hobby on this list is going to be suitable for everyone, we’re sure there is probably a hobby or two that we discussed that people might want to try.
