The importance of hobbies

Being back home has given me the time to take up the hobbies I used to enjoy when I was younger. Of course we can learn new hobbies as we get older but it's been especially nice to get back together with friends and family and play sports we used to enjoy.

Tennis has been especially rewarding. When I play I can't keep the smile of my face. I feel free, it's fun and I have no worries! 

Hobbies don't have to be sports they can also be creative or challenging. I have friends who enjoy knitting, making jewellery, sewing, learning new languages and instruments.

I wanted to share some of the benefits from having a hobby as it's become a really important part of my life.

1. Stress reliever. Having a hobby will help take your mind of the demands of your daily life while remaining mentally productive.

2. You can explore new talents that you never knew you had. Push yourself  out of your comfort zone and try something new.

3. Well rounded life. Provides the physical, mental, emotional and creative benefits that make life more meaningful and fun. 

4. Physical hobbies. Lower blood pressure, weight loss, increase of energy, strengthens bones.

5. Self esteem. We get a sense or control and productivity through hobbies which helps boost our self esteem as we accomplish particular tasks. Building our skill set, becoming more patient and creative are just a few things which can be taken into other parts of our life.

6. Bonding. Hobbies are a great way to meet new people and socialise over our passions. We can learn new things from each other, find support and build confidence.

I hope you have a hobby which you take time to enjoy for yourself. If you don't make sure you try new things until you find something that makes you happy. You might suprise yourself!
