Why You Should Get a Hobby in 2017

I am a firm believer that everybody should have a hobby. Whether that's blogging, weight lifting, cross stitching, or reading, I think hobbies are one of the best things a person can have. 

But aren't there better ways to use your time?
One might think so, but no. A lot of really successful people turned their hobbies into full time careers. These are people that worked on their hobby and eventually gained careers where they get to do what they love all day everyday. Even if that doesn't end up being you, hobbies are still incredibly beneficial. They can be a form of stress relief if your 9-5 job is giving you major anxiety. They can also help connect you with like minded people. If your hobby is something online, the internet will find a way to connect you with people exactly like you and if it's not, chances are, you'll come face to face with people doing what you're doing. 

Hobbies can also be great teachers. They can teach you about yourself by challenging you to go farther, try new things, and dream just a little bigger. Hobbies can also teach you valuable life skills. For example, my hobby would be blogging or youtubing. Through that, I've learned about SEO, a little about coding, marketing, monetization, and a whole bunch of other things I never would have learned about had I not dove headfirst into my hobby. 

In 2017 I think we should all get hobbies. Just a little something that we can look forward to at the end of each day. Something we believe in, that is self gratifying, and that we are proud of. Let me know in the comments what your hobby or hobbies are, and what you love about it most!
