Our leisure time is valuable, and taking part in hobbies and interests is an important part of life after stroke. You may want to return to interests you enjoyed before your stroke, or try out some new ones. We've got some ideas that may help you.
Hobbies and interests are a good way to keep your mind and body active and can help you to continue your recovery while you’re at home. Doing something you love can improve anxiety or low mood.
