I have often asked clients with heightened stress levels what they do for a hobby to relax? The answers are varied, you see some either fish, garden, play golf, or go to the gym to name just a few. They all sound nice, and even relaxing. So why are the clients still suffering from a heightened stress level? If they are living a balanced life of work and play, there should be no problems.
So I asked the question, when do you to do your hobby? The answers are illuminating, as they reply, I fish once every six months, I garden once every month, I go at Christmas time, and I go to gym once every two weeks. With these kind of answers, it is clear to me that people have lost the definition for a hobby.
What is a hobby?
A Hobby has a beginning, a middle, and an end.
A Hobby is something that you can do at home once the sun goes down.
A Hobby can be worked on for 10 to 20 minutes a night.
A Hobby will never make you money.
A Hobby is just for your enjoyment
A Hobby is something that takes all of your attention for the time you are working on it.
Of course I have been asked what do I recommend in the way of a hobby.
For people with an eye for detail I’ve found model building a good place to start. Ask yourself when did you build your last model kit? And if you answer, “When I was a kid” – then I’ll reply, “So when did you get old?” It’s true, who says you have to give up your childhood just because you’re working the 24/7 and have a mortgage?
Not interested in models? Then what about jigsaw puzzles? Jigsaws take all or most of your attention and it is difficult to multi-task at the same time. And as the jigsaw takes shape you get the deep satisfaction of seeing something beautiful created. In essence, a beginning, a middle, and an end. Which leaves you with a sense of happy satisfaction on completion of the task.
Now of course there are so many hobbies to choose from, so good luck at choosing yours – start small, think big.
