A hobby is an activity, interest, enthusiasm, or pastime that is undertaken for pleasure or relaxation, done during one’s own time. There is no limited number of hobbies. Different people like doing different things in their spare time. Hobbies are great to keep your hands busy. It could be anything- Reading, writing, fishing, playing the guitar or even poetry slamming.
Anything that helps you escape the tiresome life routine for a while can be termed as a hobby. Even seeing the clouds move can be a hobby if you absolutely enjoy doing it. However, in recent years of study, scientists have pinned down 5 hobbies which make our life better.
To find out what these hobbies are, continue reading:
1. Petting An Animal
The entire world is aware of the fact that pets make great friends. There are millions of cases on the internet which prove that some bonds between a pet and a parent (I hate calling them owners) are stronger than other human bonds. The best thing about pets is that even though they are a part of your life, for them, you are their entire life. Petting an animal is also known for reducing stress and making you a more responsible adult. Taking care of pets also help in holistic ways. Having a pet is basically like living with a friend. I mean have you ever seen a person who has remained to be sad and stressed after petting a puppy? In fact, researchers have found out that people who own a pet live a healthier life than people who don’t. Having a pet at home also gives you a very strong reason to come back home, even if you live alone.
Loved getting your clothes dirty in childhood? Well, we have a hobby that is just perfect for you! There is no answer that nature doesn’t have. Gardening is very beneficial for us, in both physical and psychological ways. Being out for gardening exposes us to the sun which helps our body receive just the right amount of Vitamin E. It also lightens and refreshes our mood. Gardening also reduces your chances of getting a heart attack by about 30% since it makes your body do a lot of exercises simultaneously. If your garden is big enough, you could also get yourself a pond and add some fish in. You may even want to start fishing in your own garden, so dont forget to get some fishing gear
There is a dancer within all of us. You just need the right music and mood. Dance, however, you want to. Nobody shall judge you for doing what you really enjoy doing. When you dance, your motive isn’t to do all the steps perfectly. Your motive is to feel every step that you do. Dancing enables you to find and lose yourself, both at once. Play a track, tap your feet, move your hands a little and most importantly, enjoy. And TADA! YOU’RE GROOVING ALREADY.
Dancing not only relaxes your mind but also strengthens your muscles due to all the pulls and stretches. It also helps in increasing your memory by remembering the long dance routines and also helps in increasing the coordination level between your body and mind. It also makes your body more flexible and keeps you active.
