I’m sure you’ve heard of the saying that you should have three hobbies, one that makes you money, one that keeps you in shape, and one to be creative.
I agree with this and I like the idea of it. However, I think there is one hobby that holds more power and should be something that we all have on our tool belt.
The Ultimate Hobby.
What is the ultimate hobby? Well, that’s up to you, but the ultimate hobby does the following…
The ultimate hobby should help you to grow as a person without really trying. It gets your brain or your body (or both) working, and improves you and your life in more ways than one.
The ultimate hobby should be something that is productive. Something you can do without any remorse because it’s useful and important. So if you’re not working, you can do this hobby and still feel good about your achievements that day.
Can do no matter your mood
The ultimate hobby will be something that you can do no matter how you feel. Something that you can do while sad, angry, tired, happy, excited, frustrated, whatever!
There’s times when you don’t feel up to certain hobbies because they require so much of you, but not the ultimate hobby!
No matter the weather
The ultimate hobby is doable no matter if it’s raining outside or scorching heat! The ultimate hobby is ready and waiting for you no matter the circumstances.
No matter where you are
And of course, it’s doable no matter where you are in the world, too. Your hobby can come with you and be easy to do wherever you’re stationed.
For me, there’s one clear winner as to the ultimate hobby: Reading.
Reading, you can do wherever, whenever. You don’t need to be in a particular mood because there’s all sorts of books to suit your mood. It’s easy to do, but also productive and helps you to improve.
My sister is working part time at the moment and she’s consistently bored. She doesn’t know what to do with her time.
But me? I’m never bored because I have two ultimate hobbies! Reading and writing.
I can do either no matter my mood or where I am. I can vary how I do them, but they’re always there for me to do at any time of the day.
And trust me, it feels immense. To never truly be bored, never unproductive, never lost or stagnant, that’s just wonderful, isn’t it?
So, get yourself a magic ultimate hobby. One that doesn’t ask much of you, but gives a lot in return.
