Yesterday I had a really long day, I was feeling tired and I couldn't wait to get home. So were my colleagues, all they wanted was to go home and do nothing. But I wanted some hobby time. It is far more relaxing to do something you love than not doing anything.
Having a hobby is very fulfilling, it brings us so many benefits.
When you decide to do something with your free time, you need to learn the basics, it requires effort and can be frustrating but you end up with a new skill and ready for hours of relaxed enjoyment. You also tend to step up and constantly challenge yourself to go further. The benefits are enormous,with the simple fact of having a hobby you:
- learn a new skill
- improve your focus
- develop your creativity
- learn to over come challenges as they come along
- train your patience and perseverance
- strengthens yourself
- gives you a sense of accomplishment
Just try it and see how much more confident and relaxed you become.
