Why Hobbies Are Important (For Hobbyists and Non-Hobbyists Alike)


Hello, dear readers, and thanks for tuning in to another installment of my blog. Today’s post is about the value of having hobbies.

Ever heard the phrase, “That dude needs a hobby?” If so, you’re probably thinking of someone who has way too much time on their hands.

A hobbyist, on the other hand, is someone who enjoys spending time with beautiful women, often paid entertainers of various ethnicities and personalities. The hobbyist is a gentleman who gets around, physically.

But this post isn’t about illicit hobbies, I’m just talking about hobbies in general: golfing, macrame, cooking, that kind of thing.

You see, I think it’s important for everyone to have a hobby – something they enjoy doing just because it’s fun and they enjoy doing it.

These days, we always want a good reason for doing something. It’s understandable, because there are only so many hours in the day. But a hobby give you something to do when all you want to do is nothing, and enjoy it.

The best thing about a good pastime is, the time passes easily, quietly, and peacefully. Even if your hobby happens to be going to the local pub to watch sports, or tuning into Twitch to watch your favorite gamers, these activities tend to inspire a sense of peace and wellbeing.

If you’re too busy to enjoy a hobby, then it’s almost like you’re too busy to relax. It takes the ability to sit back and do nothing for a while, to really be able to turn it on and get back into gear.

What goes up must come down, and I feel that people need to spend some more downtime on things that don’t seem that important, but can actually add a lot to your quality of life.

Not everything has to be so important. Some things are meant to be important, but other things can just be silly. Or fun. Or whoever.

For those moments, I just thought about how stupid puzzles are, and I didn’t have a care in the world, besides how stupid puzzles are. I like puzzles, by the way. This is just an example of how hobbies can be entertaining but also a little bit pointless.

As Spring bleeds into summer, I wish that you can enjoy a hobby or two outside the world of beautiful things and beautiful people. Remember, life is what you make of it. And it’s the little things in life that create memories, as well as the big things. Take time this Spring to focus on the little things that spark joy, delight, and even curiosity. These are the things to revisit come high summer, when the dog days may be upon you, and you may wish for a little bit of rest underneath a patch of shade…

Whimsically yours,
