One of my friends pointed out that hobbies are only for the rich. Well, with the amount of work we put in daily at both work and home it is not surprising that we have any time left for our hobbies. Moreover, the funds to spend on our hobbies are also limited. But what I believe is that you can view life as an endless ocean of possibilities, if you look at it as an evolving exploration. When you continuously and persistently challenge yourself by learning new skills and things, you will not be faced with a single boring moment. Taking up a hobby, helps you understand your true nature and improve yourself in all spheres. Here are some nice hobbies you can consider taking up.
Grilling and cooking
Whether you are a man or woman, it is necessary to be capable of feeding yourself. This is one basic part of self-sufficiency. When you learn to prepare a meal right from scratch, you will not go hungry at any time.
Skiing and Snowboarding
These are great to keep you fit physically and to improve the spatial reasoning skills you have. You need snow, some capital, and best of all perseverance to master this bobby. If you are not much into skiing, longboarding is another way to explore the adventurer in you. You will be able to gain balance, learn to move your body via space, and be actively engaged.
This is a skill that has been in tradition for a long time. It teaches you the skill of being patient, and the direct link between a cause and effect. In addition to spending some time and money, you need to use your hands and brains to make this hobby work.
Golf is scorned by many as it is seen as a lazy man’s sport. But what many don’t understand is you get lots of exercise and fresh air, when you play the sport. You develop your spatial reasoning capability and understand how wind influences the ball’s direction. Good body posture and precision can be learnt with this sport.
While chess is a difficult game to master, which may sometimes take all of your life, you can however learn the basics, which teach you how to judge, plan and observe. All this is very much needed in all interpersonal relationships you develop in personal and professional life. This hobby is not expensive but reaps great benefits.
Learning a musical instrument
We all are essentially musical creatures. Learning an instrument such as piano or guitar gives immense benefits to our brain and general health.
You’d have heard your friends mention they have invested in the trade market. Just like chess, investing needs prediction, planning, and observation skills. Initially instead of investing capital, you can just observe the stocks, read reports, and become involved in the trading business. This will help you make wise decisions when you invest.
This hobby needs a range to practice and of course the appropriate gear. You can bring along your own bow, arrows and armguard for practice. The hobby teaches precision and focus, which are important for your various worldly pursuits.
