I know it's a cliché for this time of year but I feel like a loser and I'm going to try and do something about it. I'm unsure about how I set the right pace on a change in lifestyle though so that I don't crash out, what do you lot think is a reasonable pace for hobbies?

My idea is to keep every other day for a particular after work activity, so for instance:
Monday - picking up an instrument
Wednesday - maybe start taking language classes instead of wasting time on Duolingo
Friday - cooking something new, I might look into cooking classes when those come back even if you can get it all free on youtube

These would hopefully give me a chance to make friends, I'm a private man so I only really have two friends who live some distance away. I'd also like to make time for getting into shape once I find a decent programme for an absolute beginner - this being for both my long-term health but also as I want to look better.

I know it's also a cliche, but a few-birds-one-stone approach might be to take up rock climbing if there is a decent gym around you. It's an interesting and enjoyable hobby, it'll help you get fit, and you'll end up meeting people if you do it often enough even if you're not especially good at it.

Everyone I work with and everyone I went to uni with are fervent rock climbers. I honestly cannot understand it. I tried it twice and both times it was one of the most miserable experiences of my life. The shoes are like wrapping your feet in impermeable cling film so they just collect sweat, and if you don't have narrow feet (I have EEEE wide feet) then are horribly uncomfortable. You have to completely dry your hands out, which I absolutely abhor the feeling of, and the second time I ripped so much skin off the palm of my head I left a massive blood trail all the way down the wall, and it didn't heal fully for about 2 months.

Everyone says it's about problem solving too but I didn't see that.
