We refrain from pursuing hobbies which otherwise we love to do thinking they are for people who have lots of time to spare. This is a misunderstanding we have about hobbies.
Having a hobby is worth the time you spend on it. Hobbies give you emotional, mental and physical benefits by pursuing them.
Hobbies give you the opportunity to take breaks from your regular work. One cannot work continuously for long periods of time without taking time-outs in between. Instead of wasting this break-time by doing nothing purposeful, sleeping or wasting, following a hobby will convert this time to good use. It will also give you happiness by doing something you love. After all, hobbies are activities that you love to do but have not yet found the time to do.
Hobbies are often challenging tasks – and when its coupled with your fondness – it gives you a different kind of high to your spirit. Besides that, it’s a welcome change from your daily routine of work! work! and work!
