    Re: What hobby should I do to alleviate boredom?

    Preparing for doomsday (or a short-term economic collapse) is fun, reasonably affordable, and it'll give you something actionable to do when you're anxious. I'd start with either learning to shoot or stockpiling supplies.
    Since you mentioned medical issues you could also start doing yoga or breathwork. I've resolved a lot of minor physical issues over the years by researching various stretches and exercises.

    I've been a licensed radio amateur for 38 years. It has been very fun and rewarding over that time and I've made many of life-long friends I otherwise would not have known.

    For me, it's my dog. I take him on hikes and outdoorsy adventures most weekends. Other than, it's music. Guitar, bass, mandolin. I learned the old fashioned way, but the internet (Youtube) is so full of free lessons, tips, etc that it's never been easier to learn.

    Re: What hobby should I do to alleviate boredom?

    A lot of good suggestions. I really enjoy investing - and while there's obviously some risk, there's a very tangible benefit when you get it right (which there isn't with a lot of other hobbies). There have been quite a few months when I have made more from my investments than I have from my 9-5 job. Ideally I would like to get to the stage where I can live off them indefinitely.

    Other than that, meditation, reading... I've always been someone who much prefers the mental stimulation, over physical - the downside is I really have to force myself to work out to stay in shape. Much rather be reading a book.

    Re: What hobby should I do to alleviate boredom?

    The only times I am ever bored are the times I have to sit through meetings at work.

    I’m never bored in my spare time. In our day and age you can learn about anything online.
    There are so many things I’d like to do. So many goals to achieve before I can do them.

    Photography, psychology, philosophy, film making, writing a book, building a business, making music, traveling, … life is just such a fantastic experience. I just sometimes feel sad that we only live that short.
