Why would you even WANT a hobby?

A Happy Hobby is defined as an activity done regularly in one's life for pleasure. It's cool that many hobbies can be done with other people, but some are even more fun by yourself.

 

Happy Hobbies provide an avenue to express creativity, and they are an outlet that allows you to relax and refocus on something other than the stresses of the craziness of our everyday lives. 

Your hobby can also energize you and bring purpose and joy (unless you get totally carried away overspending at Michael’s…not that I’ve ever done that!) And, there are several other benefits to hobbying. Maybe I’ve inspired you consider a new activity. I hope so!A Happy Hobby is defined as an activity done regularly in one’s life for pleasure.

Is Starting a Happy Hobby Appealing to you?

If you’re in any of these life situations, adding a Happy Hobby might be an emotionally healthy choice for you. 🙂

1. You’ve moved to a new state or community. Starting a new hobby (or continuing an old one) is a great way to meet people. Lots of fun folks hang out at Hobby Lobby and Micheal’s.

2. You’re in a lonely season of life, or just find yourself lonely at times. Being busy and creative tends to alleviate lonely feelings. And, again, hanging out at craft stores or other hobby hubs can lead to new friends!

3. You’re busy, overwhelmed, sad, happy, motivated, need to get healthy, need to relax; all of these and more life situations can be a great reason to start a hobby. Give one a try. You never know; a silly idea could turn into a totally fulfilling ‘addiction’!
