Find A Hobby

A person without a hobby is like a public speaker without a topic. Hobbies keep us focused. They center us. There is an unexplained benefit from spending time doing what we love to do.

I do not look forward to my runs, but they’re growing on me. I love the feeling afterwards.  It’s that sense of accomplishment. Yesterday I went six miles on my run. I ran the first four miles, walked the next mile, then finished up with sprints for the last mile and a half. My body was sore from the run, but being able to tell myself that I ran six miles brought on a feeling of satisfaction. It also releases tension and stress. Life can be hard and stress can build.  We need to find a way to let it out.

Stress can tear us down from the inside out. If we allow it to build, it will affect our attitude, health, and our focus. A hobby helps prevent  this. We need to focus our energy on something other  than work or people. We need an outside source of accomplishment.

Something as simple as a jigsaw puzzle can help take our mind off of our problems. Sure, we could zone out watching TV.  However, there is not a sense of accomplishment. Remember also, whatever fills the eyes fills the heart. This is why TV is not a good pass-time event. Find something productive to do today. Focus on accomplishing small goals that are not work or people related. 🙂

    Great read and couldn’t agree more! I wrote something similar yesterday, encouraging readers to try something new or to change their routine for the better. Having a hobby is an important step. Perhaps that hobby can even be transformed into your source of income.

    Keep up the good work mate!
