Hobbies, Why is it important?
Why do you need a hobby? Hobbies make us a happier person! Hobbies are important for both adults and kids. As adults, we may say who has time for hobbies? Everyone seems so busy! Between running the kids to dance and piano lessons, working and keeping a tidy house. Who has time for a hobby?
Various things contribute to this, but many of us, we love to say we are busy, but simply isn’t true. Instead, we waste time, creating the illusion of busyness. We spend hours on end browsing social media such as Facebook, twitter, email, binge watching on Netflix or amazon – pick one! I am guilty of it as well! We all are! Imagine if you can use that time and do something fun!
Having a hobby that we enjoy brings us joy and enriches our lives! It is a great stress relief! A hobby ignites your creativity! A hobby opens your mind to new possibilities. If your looking for social interactions – then definitely pick a hobby! Sign up for a class at a local studio. A hobby opens up doors to meet new people. Hobbies encourages you to interact with people in ways that doesn’t give you social anxiety. Hobbies gives us something fun to do. We are very fortunate to have so many different options! The best way to cultivate a hobby is to try something new. The opportunity to learn a new skill is always exciting for me! We live in a wonderful world that is full of exciting activities that we can explore and make us our own. We have the world wide web as well to explore and learn from! There are too many choices – you just have to find which one you love! If learning online using Youtube videos doesn’t work for you – then check out local studios! I think there is a studio for each and every hobby you can imagine! Oh! And, a hobby allows for additional income.
Why is it important for kids to have a hobby?
As a child, you see everything as something new. Kids are always exploring who they are, what they enjoy, and what they are good at. Hobbies provide an excellent opportunity for kids to learn a new skill and develop in ways academic pursuits can’t always provide.
If your child shows even a small interest in something – jump on it! Find ways to help them! Encourage them but never force it on them! They may stick with it for years or may only last a few weeks. You never know until you allow them to explore and learn.
