Leisure and hobbies

Leisure activities can improve your physical and mental wellbeing, as well as your social participation

They can improve your sense of control, and your feelings of self-esteem and self-fulfilment.

Participation in leisure activities supports community participation and contributes to quality of life. These can include reading, listening to or playing music, camping, arts and craft, and gaming. Going to music festivals, attending concerts and parties, hanging out with friends. All are ways that you can be involved and participate in activities they enjoy.

There is also the option of joining a community participation or life skills program. The focus of these programs is going out and participating in the community, making friends and connections, and pursuing individual interests.

If you have leisure and hobby goals it may be helpful to discuss what you would like to achieve, any barriers you experience, and ways to overcome them. Friends, family or support workers may be able to help you with this
