Sorry, but I just don't want to be on my laptop 24/7. I need some distractions to shut this off.
try origami. inb4 but I need to buy origami paper.
Exercise, walking, recreational meditation, solo ttrpg(consumes paper and requires dice and a writing implement usually), bird/nature watching, people watching, cloud watching, internal cultivation, recreational mathematics, etc.
Thanks, I started doing Yoga this morning. It feels nice. I see it as a supplement to my bodyweight exercises routine.
Working on my muscle car
that's my hobby and I have spent roughly 2000-2500 hours practicing the past 2 years. it's fun and endless.
Clouds are cool but is it a hobby?
Posting hobby criticism posts yet again is alright, but is it a hobby?
browsing a meteorology forum every once in a while and it does seem pretty interesting, i guess.
If everyone is interested in this kind and loves geometry, I'd recommend this book: http://libgen.rs/book/index.php?md5=0E078DFAC46BD4C1C08D029477C61F96
It's pretty much doing geometry by folding papers.
I mean anyone, not everyone.
you dont have to pay for spotify although a lot of music is only on spotify but even more isn't.
Go on last fm and play through every artist with a tag you like from back to front.
You can talk to others at the start to learn the must know classics and lesser known classics and then you are on your own searching endlessly for new songs.
I was going to say walking but even then you'll probably end up buying some nice walking shoes or gear, then one of those hiking sticks and backpacks so you can take snacks for longer trips.
Craigslist has a free section with dirt, pallets, couches, and broken electronics. You'd still need gas, multi-meter, and soldering iron for diagnosing and replacing bad components, but you could possibly recover that cost with fixed electronics.
If you don't want to drive anywhere, go on walks through alleyways. I've seen lawnmowers and broken TV sets that people put out for bulk trash pickup.
Don't do it, wiz. Seriously, I don't think it has any positive effects. I used to fast on fridays for months and the only results I got were weight loss/keeping my weight in check and feeling extremely tired and cold around afternoon and evening. I couldn't do anything, couldn't read, play, watch anything because I could barely focus. That's why I stopped doing it, because I couldn't do anything fun on days I starved myself. I guess it is okay if you want to fast if you want to lose weight or if you want to torture yourself, otherwise stop it, please. Even cutting yourself is better than this, if you want to hurt yourself so much or cause yourself physical pain in some way. Monks practiced fasting because they were strictly "no fun allowed" type of people who had nothing better to entertain themselves with.
I advise you to find other things you can satisfy your sense of control with. Oh yeah, and if you are forced to use your strength in any way you are fucked if you fast regularly. This is another reason to stop this madness. If you got into a fight and had to defend yourself (you never know) being at least at average weight is a must. Don't weaken yourself wiz.
I can definitely relate to feeling cold and tired when not eating in the evening, esp. in winter when it gets very painful, but I'm a light weight so it might have something to do with that, I'm not sure.
Fasting is a big health fad these days. I think it's massively exagerated as some sort of one size fits all cure to… every ailment there is, basically, from cancer to erectile dysfunction lol.
>I advise you to find other things you can satisfy your sense of control with.
Meh. Doing it for that reason is better than deluding oneself into believing it is making one healthier and spiritually enlightened or whatever the self-help crowd claims it does… Embrace the neurosis, reject the kooky bullshit and be honest with yourself.
Read an article the other day saying fasting is actually really good for you once in a while. Going a week is stupid but like 1 or 2 days a week is supposed to (I don't remember source) increase dramatically your chances of long life. I too fast sometimes when I don't have groceries or am too lazy lazy cook. So I just smoke weed and write music of clean
Last time I only had hunger pangs around 20-30 hours after starting and then I didn't feel hungry at all after. I only stopped because I wasn't sure if it was harmful or not. I didn't have any tiredness or cold feeling due to not eating.>>61479
Do you have an idea about what actually makes it stupid? I couldn't find any information on how much fat it burns vs. how much muscle or other important tissue it also destroys. That and potentially slowing metabolism are all I can think of that might make it stupid and was wondering if you heard anything else or if you can confirm these are why you say that.
Oh yeah, ‘not eating’ sounds like a blast. Great hobby.
it is consumption free
Main benefit for me is that fasting allows my digestive system to rest and improves my skin health. I very often do intermitent fasting where I don't eat past afternoon because it helps me wake up in the morning due to hunger. Supposedly fasting also decreases your mTOR levels increasing your lifespan. I think fasting is fine as long as you maintain a healthy bodyweight. Once when I lost motivation to eat and lost a lot of weight I became emotionally numb and very weak and unmotivated. If you're in a bad place mentally make sure to plan your meals because not bothering with eating can be pretty tempting.
Lots of things on Google man. The human body is super resilient so fasting in smaller chunks is fine.
you can't do shit then
books cost money
electricity costs money(so watching television is not free)
game consoles cost money unless you already have them(the electricity to play them costs money)
exercise is not consumption-free
you burn calories and because of that you have to eat more. it leads to food consumption and water consumption.
I guess you could try bushcrafting, not the type normies do where they buy a truck load of tools, but more like the type where you go into the woods and build your own stuff (tools, shelter etc) with what nature gives you. Exercise without equipment (calisthenics) and maybe meditation might work as well.
camping(if you already own the equipment)
How do you get a big haul home without a car? Cars cost alot. Or were you actually planning on pulling a wagon behind you on foot the entire trip?
I carried 64 pounds of equipment, food, and video games over a 70+20 litre ruck and 12 liter satchel, through snow and ice and that black slush that forms around the warm stormdrains. It's no big ordeal hiking with weight and even soldiers who are assigned to carry SAW ammo in full plating can adapt to it after a short amount of training. hueg bags come cheap because new production only has milsurp to compete with. You'll never regret your purchase of a bag that can safely store enough food, water, and anime to survive a 7-day bugout to the underside of an overpass.>>61998
These look good on paper but anything made to be collapsible and packable will eventually fail at the points of articulation. Adding any significant weight to a bicycle can really wear it down too. If something happens to the bike, anon will have to carry it PLUS his haul. Better to go slow and steady and just make the walk. Better yet, get a tow-behind tot roller, the little strollers with 2 wheels and a canopy. The hobos downtown here use them to store their entire lifehood and they're designed to be incredibly safe and up to the task of pulling weight. Minimal wear on the bike and it's easy to abandon then come back to because who's going to f**k with a baby stroller.
i am afraid the tires will go flat and then i'll have to buy new tubes
it's okay if you have an income but not much if you are a neet
i large backpack or a wagon
>buy and maintain an expensive bicycle and accessories
bicycles have become a upper middle class thing
even if you somehow fuck them up you can patch them. tubes are rubber and to patch it you just need another piece of rubber and some sealant. there are antipuncture liners that go between the tube and the wheel. you can buy puncture resistant tubes as well, or just buy the sealing compound and squirt it into a tube. special tubes also exist that are much thicker on the bottom to faciliate being stronger. being neet is no excuse to not get good equipment. you can make money selling garbage you find on ebay. you are basically investing in yourself by getting a nice bike. the only other alternative is a big ass wagon or shopping cart but have fun pushing/pulling that around. or a car, but that is expensive and takes gas. to start you probably will just use any backpack and then use the money to get better stuff
>>62006>bicycles have become a upper middle class thing
Again. Or did you forget it was created for the upper middle class?
fair but my point was that it was more of a prole thing for a while in the mid 20th century
now it's more of a fashionable trend for virtue signalling green urbanites and lycra clad tryhards with rides that are twice as expensive as a used car
Lucid dreaming and astral projection. Unless you count dream sex or astral sex as consumption.
Bodyweight strength training
Screaming at animals in nature
Journaling with a huge 600 page notebook, that you'll only have to replace once every 6-12 months

I'll be in the middle of nowhere in summer. I won't have any access to the internet and I won't bring my laptop there. What would you suggest? There is a sea nearby and I'll swim, but I cannot do it all day or all summer. I'm waiting for your recommendations. Thanks in advance.
i have been experimenting with intermittent fasting for brain benefits, and to rid of my pot belly
I can already tell you will be posting about this for months, not succeeding and eventually falling for another useless meme.

you could take a field guide with you to identify plants and animals, a star chart, planisphere, or astrolabe and learn the stars, and by the sea you could do fishing, shrimping, cockling, or whatever is there. if you're identifying plants anyway you could try making cordage from nettles and baskets from coppice, that kinda stuff, and see if you can find anything tasty
Thank you. I go survey the area as you say, but I'm looking for some hobbies that I could do indoors mostly because it's too hot outside like 43C degrees.
that's very hot especially as it's by the sea, but you could harmonize your time indoors and outdoors whether it's coming up with knots or weaves, practicing things like furoshiki, suburi, zazen, or analyzing cuttings you've brought back with you
there's also nothing wrong with just relaxing on hot days
Thanks for your suggestion.
>practicing things like furoshiki, suburi, zazen, or analyzing cuttings you've brought back with you
They all look so useful and meaningful. By the way, I talked to myself about what I like and what I want to do, and I realised I wanted strength and skills related to that. I'll learn how to do boxing and get a trainer if necessary, will do hiking, camping and bouldering etc. As you see in UFC fights, they use all the means in the hexagon. So, practicing some moves and doing shadowboxing at home is the best in my opinion. Even though you're doing the wrong stuff, you'll improve your body and overall athleticism.r8
>>62077> Screaming at animals in nature
Please tell us more about this one.
I scavenge animal bones, pelts, skulls and anything cool from the beach to make sculptures.
