Best hobbies to take up in your 40s
Now is the perfect time to start something new
You're never too old to start something new. It may sound cliché, and while it's unlikely you'll become an international sports star, there are plenty of new things you can do and excel at.
Hobbies are important for a happy, balanced life. Being over 40 usually means that you're a bit more established in various areas, making it actually easier to fit new activities into your schedule.
You're now more mature, have more patience, and still have enough stamina to do a number of physical activities, so this is the perfect time to embark on a new adventure!
In this gallery you'll find a selection of hobbies you can take up in your 40s, so browse through and be inspired.
