When we are not working, studying, cleaning, washing up, paying bills and food shopping we should be having a ball. Obviously, I’m not saying that working and studying can’t be fun, but for most people, the aforementioned are more or less obligations and from my point of view, a hobby, or the things we do when we have free time or leisure time, is a choice not a necessity. In a nutshell, the definition of a hobby is something that you do in your spare time to chill out and something which you are not paid to do.
So, when you’ve got time off work, or you’re sick to the back teeth of studying, what do you get up to?
Are you nuts about listening to music like me, or perhaps you’re an adrenalin junkie like my friend who straps on a harness and spends every weekend trying to defy gravity by climbing rocks like Spiderman. Maybe you’re keen on doing physical activities in teams, or perhaps individual activities like reading and yoga are more your cup of tea.
