 Jigsaw Puzzles

There are plenty of hobby ideas for older people to choose from, but one of the most enjoyable and stimulating is a good old-fashioned jigsaw puzzle. There are so many different types of puzzles to choose from, including actual photographs, cartoons, paintings, and other backgrounds. 3D puzzles provide a whole new challenge to this classic hobby. Rather than piecing together a flat photograph, you'll build three-dimensional structures.​



There are so many different genres to choose from, which means that there will be something for everyone. Fiction fans only need to take a look at the current bestseller list for inspiration. This year's bestselling novels (so far) include:

  • Reminders of Him by Colleen Hoover

  • The Maid by Nita Prose

Of all our hobby ideas, this is one that most of us consider at some point in our lives. Teaching yourself a new skill provides a stimulating mental challenge, which is important in the battle against dementia and cognitive decline. You'll also develop your time management and organizational skills.

Your hand-eye coordination will also improve, as your brain will be working to convert the musical notes that you're reading on the page into specific hand movements, breathing techniques, and rhythms.

  • Choirs.

Learning new skills keeps the brain healthy. In fact, research by the Alzheimer's Society showed that education could delay the onset of dementia.

There are plenty of benefits to taking part in birdwatching.

Birdwatching combines the benefits of several of the hobby ideas we've shared: physical activity, learning something new, and spending time outdoors. Being outside is great for your mental health, as it improves your mood and provides you with a space to think. Birdwatching is a great opportunity to reflect or to just zone out and think calming thoughts
