So what is a hobby?
When talking of hobbies, the thought of collecting stamps or old coins will probably come to mind. But a hobby doesn’t have to be one of those ordinary collections; there are many hobbies out there that can serve to expand who you are, develop your interests and perfect your skills. You just have to discover what that is, and work from there.
A hobby can be something that enriches your life.
Interesting hobbies are also a great way to expand your neural activity. When you do something new your brain has to create new “maps” or neural pathways. The more new paths you make (instead of doing the same activities over and over and creating a “rut” of only one pathway) the less likely you are to experience dementia, the more creative you’ll become, and therefore the more successful you’ll be. It’s never to late to try something new and entertaining.
A hobbyist pursues the hobby to satisfy personal or creative urges. And hobbies vary in their intensity and scope. Some people pursue them on a very occasional basis while other people do them daily. That is one of the nice things about a hobby – you can expand or contract the amount of time you invest in it based on what you want and what you want to learn or achieve.
There’s also a whole social aspect to hobbies; how many times have you been at a cocktail party or social event where making conversation was like pulling teeth? Well, if you have a hobby that you’re passionate about, it opens up the possibility of a conversation topic and can say something positive about you at the same time.Not only can they serve as excellent icebreakers, but hobbies also serve as venues for meeting people, yes, even if you start attending Star Trek conventions, which can serve as a great networking tool or way to meet people.
Also imagine the next time you spend a weekend with some of your old buddies or the next time you visit your grandchildren. How cool would it be if you had just pick up a new hobby like playing the guitar or piano or even learning magic tricks. You will be the most popular grand parents doing amazing magic trick at your grand children’s birthday party!
So hobbies are not only an amazing way to pass time, hobbies can also help you meet people, learn new things and have fun.
Let the fun begin!
