Unusual hobbies for bored and adventurous people

Are you bored? Are you tired of people suggesting you the same old repetitive hobbies? Try some of these unusual hobbies to quench your adventurous soul.

It is Sunday afternoon, and you are bored! The mobile and the mindless scrolling of social media is not helping you at all. We, humans, have a basic need to be distracted and also entertained, but ironically, nothing holds our attention for a very long time. Be it movies, television, making Lego structures, or scrolling social media, the bored and adventurous amongst us feel the brunt of the rut of life. So, let us have a look at some unusual hobbies for bored and adventurous people.


You must have seen tightrope walking, but this is not exactly that. It is much more challenging and adventurous than tightrope walking. The rope in slack-lining isn’t tight like tightrope walking; it is bouncy and very elastic. But if you are good with maintaining balance, it is taut enough to allow you to walk. It would help you maintain balance, core strength, muscle strength and muscle control. It does require a bit of work and practice, but once you get the hang of it, it is a lot of fun!

Learn rock balancing.

One of the cheapest art forms you could learn yet one of the fascinating things you can create. It is like creating a Jenga tower but with stone. The whole purpose of this art form is to create a tower of stones that arebonded with gravity. You don’t require any adhesive or glue to keep the stones together, but it should look like the stones or rocks have been glued. This art form does require precision, attention to detail, and, most importantly, patience.

Monster paintings.

This is one that is really innovative, imaginative and a lot of fun. If you want to fiddle with your artistic side, then this hobby is for you. Artists such as Thryza Segal and Chris McMahon started the trend of monster painting. We often see old paintings of the countryside, or horses running together often in our or our grandparent’s house. You can find such paintings in thrift stores easily. You can breathe a new lease of life in these paintings by drawing monsters in them. For example, a mutant monster behind a group of running horses or a loch ness rising in the backdrop of quiet countryside. Fascinating, isn’t it!

So, which one of these hobbies fascinated you the most?
