What hobbies do you do to relax?


12th August 2021

TOM Daley has proved he’s not just a skilled diver, but he’s also an impressive knitter too!

The Olympic gold medallist delighted fans by showing off his crafty handiwork – a special Tokyo 2020 cardigan.

Tom, who was spotted knitting poolside at the Games on several occasions, revealed the finished cardi on his Instagram page. The caption read: “When I got to Tokyo, I wanted to make something that would remind me of these games. Something that I could say I had made in Tokyo, during the Olympics!”

The diver said knitting and crocheting helps with his mental health and keeps him calm.

It’s not just clothing Tom was busy making during his time in Tokyo (aside from making diving history, of course). He also created a little pouch for his Olympic gold medal so it doesn’t get scratched!

Reading relaxes me because I can imagine what the adventures in the book would be like.As Dr Seuss said the more that you read the more things you know the more that you learn the more places you'll go.

I chose reading because reading utterly transports you to another multiverse let alone world! I do it to relax, my choosing my favourites, oddly classics like Lord of The Rings and Oliver Twist, reading lets me escape the real world!

Reading as I feel like I am there with the character. It is a way I can transport myself somewhere else. So I can take a break from the real world!

I took up Taxidermi in lockdown. It's quite fun but very hard. I also started learning Viola and worked on my grades 2, 3, 4 and 6 on piano.

I code games on Scratch. You should check it out you can play and answer loads of things that other people have made and you can make your own things.

My favourite hobby of all time is definitely sailing. I just love spending time on the water and that is so relaxing. I really recommend you try it.

I ticked pretty much all the boxes, but there are two more things I love to do: singing and guitar. I have been singing since I was born, and started guitar when I was 5. I think music is a really incredible thing, it can express so many feelings and emotions that otherwise would go ignored, and it can benefit the welfare of so many people! I think it's really amazing how all different cultures have a different type of music that can touch any souls and make everyone want to dance.

I truly think music is an amazing thing and that we would be lost without it.
