Everyone has a story to tell, some tell it by writing, some do it by drawing. But what’s important here isn’t how we’re telling our story, it’s if we’re telling it at all. Being creative has many different effects on our lives. According to this Scientific American article, being creative lessens stress and keeps the brain healthy.
If you’re a perfectionist you might think what you create has to be perfect. If it isn’t, you might not even want to do the creative activity in the first place. But what’s important is that you express yourself, that you pour your thoughts and feelings into a painting, a song, a sculpture, anything you want to pour them into. There is no bad or good here.
We said that hobbies can lessen stress, can make us money, can impact our health in a positive way. But we forgot to talk about what is maybe the most important one, our hobbies can teach us things.
We don’t know about you but we think that learning doesn’t have an age, a time or a place. Especially during these times where we have to stay inside more, learning new things will feel good for all of us. They say a rolling stone gathers no moss, we can think about this in terms of our health. Our brain and body get stronger and better the more we work them.
What’s a hobby that can teach you new things? Let’s start with the classic one; reading. It might be a book, a magazine, an article, a blog post, this is a great time to take advantage of how easy online shopping is and invest in things that improve your life. What type of books do you like? Share with us in the comments.
There are a lot of hobbies you can do to learn things beside reading. Listening to podcasts, the radio or audiobooks for example. If you’ve never listened to a podcast or an audiobook we highly recommend it, you can try different apps for it, and some books in some apps are free! You can check out audiobook apps and podcast apps on Play Store, there are a lot of apps to try.
Podcasts can be about anything, they are audio programs that are similar to radio programs. There are fiction podcasts like a radio drama, there are ones that teach you things. You can choose podcasts to find stories that you can lose yourself in as if you’re watching a tv show.
So there are a lot of hobbies you can get to improve yourself. Of course the sole purpose of hobbies aren’t to improve yourself, you can do something just to do something, but improving your quality of life while doing something you love is too good of an opportunity to pass up.
