ALL WORK AND NO PLAY MAKES JACK A DULL BOY, everyone is aware of this and its meaning.
We are in an era where everyone is busy rising up the corporate ladder forgetting things we used to love doing during our childhood. Yes, you guessed it right, the ‘things’ here are the long lost hobbies that are being ignored under the very popular phrase ‘I don’t have time for all this’. In this race, we don’t realize that these can help and act as a support in our jam packed lives. They can actually make this official journey to the top full of roses.
It’s true that we all are busy and occupied, but it’s just about taking out time to do things that interest us/you. Trust us, small time for your own interest will pump you up. There is prominent stress anyone and everyone faces at their place of work and within the family and other spheres of life. According to a study by Optum, 46% of the workforce in organizations in India suffer from some or the other form of stress.
Everyone needs something or the other to let off the steam. And what is better than opting for hobbies. Engaging in a hobby along with work may do wonders. For a moment just think about that happy time when we used to paint (the drawing files, and oh, our hands and clothes). When we used to sing our favourite songs or join those piano classes in the summer vacation. Don’t you think those moments when we used to spend time with and for ourselves is worth cherishing! Remember, it doesn’t matter if the hobby isn’t relevant to one’s work, what matters is that the hobby adds enjoyment to life, helps one relax and stimulate one with different challenges. Following a hobby also makes a person interesting and who wouldn’t want to be around an exciting and interesting person.
Times have gone when we followed our hearts, our hobbies, because we used to like doing that. It’s just that hobbies have taken a backseat for most of us. Hobbies have converted into passive pastimes like too much dependence on technology. We need to get out of the passive leisure of watching TV and scrolling our phone screens that keeps us engrossed in the virtual world. A lot of the time that one claims to be ‘busy’ is being spent on technology which can easily be reduced. Instead, it can be used for doing things that provide real happiness.
