Is It Important To Have A Hobby?

It’s important to me to have somewhere where I can temporarily shut my worries away. I am then able to focus on something that in the long run might achieve something really positive.

Besides spending times with their families, some persons have an impulse to do a certain activity and they focus their attention and energy on the accomplishment of that “project”. That is what happens when one has a HOBBY!

The problem here is actually having the time for an ‘enjoyable’ hobby, sure, I could do something which doesn’t involve having to go places and do things, but isnt that the whole idea of having a hobby? But it takes time! I suppose if I were to find a hobby enjoyable enough I would have to make time right?!

For hobbyists, a hobby is much more than just a pastime. A hobby has many benefits and advantages for each individual. For some, a hobby is an emotional outlet, for others a way of gaining knowledge. Hobbies keep our minds – and our hands – active. Whatever your reasons are, if you’ve been thinking about starting a hobby or getting a new one, consider the following advantages to help guide your decision.

Time for Ourselves: One of the biggest advantages of a hobby is it allows for quiet time. People tend to think more clearly when enjoying their favorite hobby, without the distractions of the outside world to bother them. The mind wanders and hobbyists often come up with some of their best ideas while enjoying their favorite time-passing activity.

Reveals a Talent or Passion: Hobbyists often find a talent or passion they may not have known they had before. Some people have sat down at the piano to learn how to play, only to find out they’ve always had a hidden talent for playing it anyway. Others might find they have a niche for or some other craft after only one attempt. But the only way you’ll ever discover this hidden talent is to try. The first step is to find something that you’re interested in. From there, you might find that you’re better at it than you ever could have guessed.

Use a Hobby as a Networking Tool: The only time you should list your hobby on a resume or job application is when your hobbies pertain to the type of job that you are applying for. On the other hand, mentioning a hobby during a job interview might be an endearing quality the potential employer will remember. Mentioning your hobby in an interview can also be a great conversation starter and reflect a small part of your individual personality. Hobbies have a way of implying you enjoy working with others because most hobbies are not individual activities. You’ll find hundreds of message boards, forums and clubs that are specifically designated for many particular hobbies.

Hobbies Offer a Time of Relaxation: Most hobbies are an ideal way to relax. Coming home from work and sitting down to enjoy your favorite pastime helps to take your mind off of the stresses of the day. Hobbies also help you unwind before bed so you can get a better night’s sleep.

With all of the benefits that a hobby can provide, it’s no wonder why the hobby store industry is such a successful market. There are literally hundreds of hobbies to choose from and the only limits a person has are the ones they place on themselves. The ideal hobby for each individual is one that involves something he or she enjoys and would love to do on a regular basis.

However, you have a series of choices, and all of them are decent and delightful and can offer an enormous satisfaction. It is you who has to decide upon one or many, feeling optimistic about it and exploiting it at maximum.

Your turn to talk, would love to hear about your hobbies…..
