Do you have one?
My grandmother collected stamps (mainly for others), made crossword puzzles, and played Yathzee. My other granny knitted and searched the newspaper for who died.
My grandfather was always busy. He kept many animals, was repairing everything in a large shed and a businessman. Most likely his hobbies fitted great to his work.
My father kept bees and me? As a child, I collected sugar bags and cigar bands. Both I found in a large amount in my grandparent's house. Was I really obsessed with collecting? Did it keep my mind busy and gave me the joy and self-esteem scientists say it gives you?
As a child, it's accepted to play.
Adults need to work and be productive. So we work and after work, we cook and clean up and many watch t.v.
No matter how you might love to watch movies, watching tv isn't seen as a hobby. The tv gives you a break if you are tired and make you feel better for a while but it won't last for long. If's not different from taking a shower. You feel fresh but that moment passes by fast.
It doesn't matter if you go fishing, build something great out of lego, collect postcard or knit a teddy bear what we all need is something for us. Something that fulfills us with joy and pride.
These days we show what we do, what we created on social media and it feels good to receive a compliment. It is good for our self-esteem if people show interest and it triggers many of us to start something bigger and better. Those feelings last longer and it even makes us do our job better.
There's no need to practice it. Just thinking about it feels good too. There's no need to catch that big fish to feel the energy thinking about your hobby brings.
The great thing about a hobby is you are in charge. Another plus is hobbyists are more creative no matter if they collect cups, sand, shells, bake cookies, or paint.
Create your own success.
With a hobby it's possible and it doesn't need to be something big or extraordinary. What you do you mainly do for yourself and if it comes to the great feeling a crossword puzzle made within 15 minutes does the trick too as long as you do something which fits you and it's the hobby you like.
