4 Suggestions for an Autumnal Hobby to Live the Outdoors #CP

Whether you need a short getaway from the stress of everyday life or you are planning an epic but affordable vacation with your whole family, having a hobby that allows you to enjoy nature is essential. There are many benefits with being outdoors for at least a few hours every day, but this is all even more important this year, after having stayed at home for months! Luckily, you can get your vitamin D fix with one of the hobbies below - and don’t forget that your little ones might love them too!


Experiencing life outdoors does not have to be hard or involve getting dirty. If you are more fond of classy, sophisticated, and relaxing experience, playing golf is the right hobby for you.

Moreover, in the UK, there are several golf courses a stone’s throw away from some of the most beautiful villages, attractions, and pubs in the country. So, get ready with all the equipment you need and golf balls, and set off towards your next golf destination. And you can even couple up a romantic weekend away with this hobby!


Having a hobby is not just important for teenagers; it is even more crucial for adults and parents. Indeed, a hobby can easily become a getaway to count in case you need some quiet and fresh air. If you have ever loved adventure and nature, camping is the right hobby for you. To get started you won’t need much more than a tent, a sleeping bag, and a blow-up bed. Just don’t forget to get home-cooked food from home for higher-quality meals.

Instead, if you prefer to spend the weekend with your whole family, just upgrade to a bigger tent or a camper and enjoy the ultimate road trip with your little ones! While it might take them some time to adapt, camping has so many benefits that cannot be ignored!


If you love eating fish, but you are trying to live a more sustainable lifestyle, you can get out in the wild and catching your dinner by yourself! Alternatively, you might opt to practice this hobby as a sport just to spend time in nature.

Just like in the case of camping or golfing, some fishing locations are situated in stunning natural areas such as lakes and streams. This hobby will just give you the chance to explore a new destination!


If you wish to spend more time outdoors, but you don’t have the chance to go too far from your home, you should leverage the unique benefits of gardening. This hobby is ideal for keeping stress levels under control, get your Vitamin D fix, and grow your muscles. While at the beginning you might only go as far as getting rid of weeds, there is a lot you can do when you get the hang of gardening! Best of all, you can get started with this new hobby in just a few minutes and with an extremely limited investment. Of course, the extra benefit of gardening is that you can enjoy a beautiful backyard area at your next BBQ party!
