Hobby or Hinderance?Written by Will T
Ask a room full of people what hobby they have and you will get as many answers as there are people. Others will confess that they donít have a hobby. They probably do; but just donít label it as such. By definition, a hobby is an activity or interest pursued outside one's regular occupation and engaged in primarily for pleasure.
Whether stamp collecting, chat rooms, trains, soft ball, scrapbooking, golf, reading, painting, tap dancing, yard work, crafts, auto mechanics, music, hunting down garage sales, sewing, fishing, cooking, boating, furniture refinishing, javelin tossing or a plethora of other activities or interests key element is balance. You must find balance between your family life and your extracurricular activities.
Too much of a good thing turns bad. Everyone should have an outlet and a special interest that they enjoy doing for themselves. Self indulgence, to a point, is quite healthy. Escaping from day to day grinds to take some time to devote to your special hobby or concentration is therapeutic. Youíve all heard, ďif Mamma ainít happy, no oneís happy.Ē It doesnít matter if your role is father, mother, husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, son, daughter, brother or sister, if youíre just going to work or school and have no real outside activities, youíre probably not always most friendly person to be around.
Conversely, if you bury yourself and it seems to others that all you care about or all you ever want to do is bang on drums all day, youíre setting yourself up or prolonging discontent. People deal with depression in many ways. Some sleep all time. Others want to do nothing but read, read, read. Still others will spend hours upon hours downstairs building a bigger, faster widget, just to avoid real cause of their frustrations. Hobbies are supposed to be a healthy outlet, not a catalyst to ignore issues that need addressing.
