1. Energizes You
A hobby brings you renewed energy and excitement. This will carry over to the rest of your activities.
2. Provides New Creativity
I find that when you are doing your hobby it sparks your creativity. You are more likely to have creative breakthroughs. Solutions to problems you are facing will come to you.
3. Prevents Burnout
We know that anything, even a machine, doing the same thing over-and-over will eventually burnout. If you do not take a break to refresh yourself, you too will burnout. Interestingly, this is also true in our personal lives. It is equally important for our home relationships to have an individual hobby.
4. Personal Growth
We all need to keep growing both professionally and personally. I don’t care if your hobby is gardening, weightlifting, or reading, you will grow from it.
Remember not to “Say No” to yourself. Invest in activities that lead to growth and renewal. Spend more time on yourself and you will have more productivity at work and all areas of your life.
It just works that way.
