11 Reasons Why Getting A Hobby Will Make
You Better At Work, At Home, And Inside!

by Darryl L. Mobley

Do you have a hobby that you love? One that consumes you? I certainly hope so.success-mojo-banner-to-webpage

One of the subscribers to my Success eNewsletter (Jim W. from Tennessee) sent me information on his hobby. I loved his stories and the photos. Jim collects, re-tools, and races Mustangs. His hobby caused him to meet his wife of 40+ years, meet folks who have become friends, bond with younger members of his family, and travel. He tells me that his car hobby has even kept him young! That’s good stuff.

Jim closed his letter to me with this: “Mustangs, and the people who love them, are two of my favorite parts of life! Regarding my hobby — I live it and love it. I hope that everyone can find something similar that they love and are passionate about, and live it, too!

Wow! [Thanks Jim!!!]

Here’s my question to you: What’s Your Hobby? You need one.

Here are 11 benefits that come from having your own wonderful hobby obsession:

1. It is an important aspect of having a well-balanced life.

2. Because it is something that you enjoy and do voluntarily, you will become happy every time that you find yourself working on your hobby.

3. A hobby will challenge your thinking, and strengthen you mentally.About-Darryl-banner-v2

4. You become better at managing your time (so that you can get to your hobby).

5. Having a hobby will calm you.

6. You will never be caught bored and with nothing to do. Your hobby will always be there to fill your free time.

7. Your hobby will make you more interesting to other people.

9. I have clients who met their mate-to-be while they were engaged in their hobby. I also have clients who got their big career break because of someone they met while ‘doing’ their hobby. What I’m saying is that pursuing your hobby can change your life!

10. Like burning out? Good. Neither do I. Wrapping yourself around a hobby will keep you from burning out from work or family responsibilities. More than 20 years observing others as a life & executive coach have shown me that this is true. Yes.

11. Having a hobby allows you to rack up accomplishments outside of work, family or academia. You will be amazed at how good you feel about yourself because of your hobby-accomplishments. I have a very good friend who is at the very top of the advertising field. Yet – he gets most of his feelings of joy and self-esteem from his hobby as a musician in a band.

Your hobby can be anything that you LOVE to do. It doesn’t have to be expensive or take away from other important parts of your life. When you find the hobby that is right for you, you will find it to be the perfect friend, ready to be picked up whenever you have a chance.

So again I ask you: What’s Your Hobby?

If you don’t have a hobby or you are looking for another one – I have listed below 214 Testimonial-James-Lafferty300x250hobbies that you should look over and choose from. You are bound to find some new hobbies that get your blood racing.
