Hobbies are Good For Your Health


I think one of the most valuable things my parents taught me by example is that you need to have hobbies. So often we do things for others to make them happy or make their lives easier and that is a wonderful thing. But, you need to do the same for yourself by finding something you really love (your hobby) and making time to not only do that but enjoy it! No guilt allowed for taking time for yourself. It will enrich your life...I promise!

I am just exiting a ten year stretch of scrapbooking. I LOVED scrapbooking but my kids grew up and my photo subjects dwindled drastically.My current hobby is everything essential oils. Check out my Botanical Delights shop on this site or my Etsy store BotanicalDelights This is a perfect hobby for me because I love to research and there is a lot to learn about this hobby. I am also interested in improving my health naturally so win win!

Having a hobby is a great way to relieve stress, a creative outlet and a way to meet new people who have similar interests. In fact, there are lots of ways hobbies are good for you. But if you don’t have a regular leisure activity that you enjoy, it can be difficult to decide which one will be enjoyable for you. Here are some tips for finding an interest that fits your personality and interests.

What is a Hobby?

Hobbies are simply anything you do that’s for fun. You aren’t getting paid to do it, it’s something you like to do with your free time that helps you decompress and connect with other people.

For a lot of people these days it seems like their only leisure activities are watching television and catching up on Facebook. That’s a shame, because hobbies—from rock climbing to collecting silver spoons—can have real benefits.

Why Hobbies Are Important

Hobbies often provide a creative outlet that you might not get in your everyday life. They allow you to do something that’s just for you, that can help you forget your daily problems, unwind after a hard day and give you a lot of pleasure. They motivate you in your pursuit for knowledge.
