In a world full of chaos you need to find things that call for some ME time. As an individual we find even the 24 hours of the day less to meet our targets and in the race of being on top we tend to forget that it is important to spare some time out of our busy schedule for our own self. Here is when hobbies come in the picture. A hobby can be anything that sets your soul free and makes you happy. Anything that distracts you from a busy life can be turned into a hobby. A lot of people like dancing when free, many love singing , many love painting, few play Casio or guitar or any other musical instrument of their choice.Some love poetry and are great poets. Hobbies can also turn into your careers and that is probably one of the best combination, when you enjoy your work, it always keeps you engaged and never gets you boring.
We have often heard “Khaali dimag, shaitaan ka ghar” so to avoid your khaali dimaag you must engage in a hobby. To be productive,instead of gossiping and bitching around and about people we must adapt habits which are useful. In today’s world where mobile phones have become an addiction it keeps you away from it for atleast a particular time, you forget about it and focus on your self. Mental health is one of the major issues people are facing today and having a hobby can be the purest form of cure for that.
As a person you become more interesting, innovative and creative. You have more ideas to share and more knowledge to gain. Hobbies help you become more patient. In order to develop a new hobby, you have to learn how to do something that is brand new to you. The odds are there will be a learning curve, and you will need to be patient in order to build your skills. It increases your self confidence and boosts your self esteem. It enriches your life and gives you a different perspective on things. No matter what type of hobby you choose, you will definitely be exposed to new ideas. Hobbies help you grow in various ways, including exposing you to new opinions and to new ways to look at life. Your perception about life can change, you can be more optimistic.
In today’s digitally progressive world if you post anything you are skilled at and if for once you get viral, you never know you can be the next “Rasode mei kaun tha ” sensation and in a day you would be a public figure. you post your dance,singing,cooking videos on youtube and earn likes .You have a collection of your hobbies at a particular place and it keeps you moving. you feel accomplished. You feel good. Even eating is a habit people enjoy, it may sound vague but it actually is a hobby. A hobby can be anything unless it is unethical or hurts somebody’s sentiments.
So discover new hobbies and develop existing ones. Create an impact. Get going!
