As defined by Wikipedia, “A hobby is a regular activity or interest that is undertaken for pleasure, typically done during one’s leisure time. ”. Thus, many of us think that hobbies are not important and should only be pursued when one has spare time. After all, they do take time away from work and family.
However, many do not understand that personal pursuits serve many important functions including helping keep you emotionally and mentally healthy. Taking up a hobby can indirectly help you in life improvement.
If you’ve been avoiding spending time doing activities you like to do, maybe it’s time to re-commit to some “me time” and start up your favorite pastimes again. Think about how hobbies can help you in your life.
