Hobbies are for relaxing and refreshing, but if we look at the nature of its activity. They are telling us something in addition to the joy they give us. It is probably great lessons you might have missed to realize it. But, it is not too late yet. Let’s see one by one below.
- Fishing (try your best and relax)
The great lesson fishing hobby teaches us is accepting the uncontrollable factors and enjoy the time along the process. You can have the most expensive fishing rode and the most attractive bait, but you can never know if there are fish biting your hook. They are under water swimming anywhere they want. You just have to accept that there is something you cannot control. Meanwhile, you learn to enjoy other things around like sun bathing, a fresh air nap, or the sun set view while your bait is in the water.
- Swimming (multi-tasking)
If you are to swim, you are going to use your whole body. Hands, legs, waist, and head have to be in action and in action in a consistent way with other parts. Otherwise, there will be no balance, and you can’t move forwards as fast as you like. It can be a great metaphor of management. You need different departments in your organization to work at the same in a consistent manner so that the whole organization is moving right forward.
- Painting (patient and detail oriented)
Painting is an artistic skill that requires a lot of patient and attention. When our mind is rushing, so many details will be lost, and you know what? Details make things excellent. So, by learning to paint, you will learn to use creativity, concentrate, pay the most attention, and get the details on one by one till the whole picture appears. If you think you need these skills, go for one.
- Reading books (opening your window)
Needless to say, reading books is a great hobby. Books are sources of knowledge. The more you read, the more open your mind to the world. As a result, you have a better understanding of things around more than people who don’t, and you simply will make a better decision.
- Guitaring ( flow your emotion out)
Guitaring, of course, lets you flow your emotional state of mind through your hands to the strings. The strings create sound, and it returns back to your ears. That is one of the ways to release your internal voice without talking. That would help you feel lighter and relax. You actually don’t play the guitar but your inner mind out loud.
- Trekking ( adventurous )
Trekking is an adventurous activity. It teaches you many things along the way. Physical challenge, immediate problem solving, and commitment are what you need to trek. If you stay in the office too much, you could become passive and numb. When there is time, you should attempt to try this.
- Helping other people ( building your positive self-image)
Some people choose to spend their free time doing social work. You are off from your work. You do something you feel good, and this makes you feel very positive about yourself. Having a good self-image is a reason to love your life, and this is core to having a satisfied life.
