A hobby a day keeps doldrums away – Phyllis McGinley
Just like work, a hobby is equally important. It’s much more than just a fun activity. Developing a skill not just adds to your creativity and personal entertainment but may also benefit your professional life. You are patient, improving, innovative and more creative with something you love to do. It’s like dedicatedly working on your skills.
Your hobby tells a lot about you. No wonder why people ask you about your hobbies and interests in the interviews. You have something constructive to do in your free time. There is something that you can do to refresh your mind if you have a hobby. If the question is “why do we need a hobby?” let’s discuss the reasons:
Hobby makes you a more interesting person – It adds a new colour to your personality and gives you an interesting side. People now have a reason to connect with you and know your stories. If you are good at creating, people would look forward to seeing your art-work and you get a lot of attention! You might also end up teaching your special knowledge.
Some fun and challenge in life– Life gets dull when there is no challenge or a deadline. Doing something out of the comfort zone gives the most fun. Your hobby will be your biggest motivation to get better at something. You see others, get inspired and strive to do great. A hobby makes you step out of your routine and develop your skills. It’s challenging but it’s so cool!
Builds up your confidence- Starting with something new gives you a new experience. You are motivated to shine at something new and when you do, this gives a great lift to your self-confidence and esteem.
Also, when you get appreciated by your dear ones on the work, it feels more than happy and accomplished.
A great stress reliever– You got work and deadlines but life should not just be this. A hobby keeps you engaged in something other than the daily work and helps in reducing stress. When you lose yourself in something good, you forget about the daily problems and monotony. This will relax your mind and you will love achieving something more than just the office work.
Get the creative juices flowing– The best thing about including a hobby is your mind becomes a magnet for all the creative ideas. When you get involved into something different than the daily work, your mind relaxes and this gives the path to the creativity to flow. When the creative sparks increase, you get a better solution to your problems.
There are countless activities you can explore and if you can’t think of enough ideas, surf the internet. It can be a solo or a group activity but being involved in something is important.try your hands on a few so you can know your passion. If a hobby becomes a part of your life, you’ll become a whole new person.
