Default Enjoying my hobbies

With all that's going on right now, I have been spending more time focusing on my hobbies to keep sane. Music is always playing as I am wrenching on RC cars, trucks, planes or helicopters, so that's two hobbies at the same time.

Hope you guys are also engaged in your favorite activities to weather the challenging times.

Nothing like taking a nice drive on the scenic roads, getting to a good spot to enjoy your hobby and relax.... No news, no negativity and in those moments, all is right in this world. My daily dose of hobby fun. https://youtu.be/x8zI6lus5Vc

The field where I usually “fly” RC airplanes and helicopters is in a National Park and we are having difficulties getting a permit from Washington to “reopen” after the lockdown in Pa. So my cars are next best thing to fly

Serge, unfortunately, I need a less expensive hobby than high end audio.

Buck there are countless hobbies out there and they don’t have to be expensive. The key is to keep discovering new things and keep pushing and challenging yourself to learn something new.

All my life, hobbies have always been my “mental health therapy” and way better than any shrink or a pill

Great list Tom. I've enjoyed some of the hobbies you have listed as well. Some of them I have not revisited in a long time but it is never too late until it really IS too late...

My hobby are gaming. I currently play several games that are diamonds to me. I can name just a few of them: League of Legends, Valorant, Apex Legends. These are the three most basic ones that impress me the most right now. I was even able to find Apex boosting https://overboost.pro/apex-legends-boosting, which helps me a lot with opposing strong opponents. I think this is a great option for newbies to be able to become more meaningful and successful in the game
