It’s good to have a hobby

Recently I had a bit of a realization, I don’t really have any hobbies. A lot of people will pick up their new favourite book when they’re at a bit of a loose end or have a bit of free time on their hands. I’ve never really been a reader so this isn’t something I’d choose to do. I do like to watch the latest TV series if there’s one that particularly takes my fancy and I’m always keeping up to date with the latest movies coming out at the Cinema. I’m not sure you can really call those hobbies and they’re not exactly the most active of pastimes. I’ve got so many friends and family members who seem to have at least one kind of hobby that is a little bit more interesting than being glued in front of a TV. My Uncle builds model trains, my friend goes fishing up North most weekends, my nan likes to knit and my brother plays football.



Swimming helps you think

Drastic action was needed and it was time to find something physical that I could do to pass the time. This is when I reignited my passion for swimming. Swimming isn’t the most exciting hobby to have but the tranquil frame of mind and time on your own to think whilst your swimming back and forth, does prove quite handy. Especially when you’re trying to think up useful hobbies.

Gardening is rewarding

It was then that I finally convinced myself to get out in the garden at home and do some gardening before the cold weather kicks in. This was the best decision I’ve ever made. Now I’m in the garden when I get home after work and most of the weekend. Sounds boring I know but I didn’t appreciate until now quite how exciting gardening could be. I’ve not only made the outside area look nice and welcoming but am currently growing a multitude of fruit and vegetables which is helping to slice my grocery bill right down. If you’re like me and need something to do to pass the time, try a spot of gardening, it’s rewarding physically, mentally, visually and financially.
