Life is colorful; but for many it is confined to black and white. Bound by fast paced life and day to day hardships just for couple of bread, we have entangled ourselves in a stressed out lifestyle. We all know that it is important to rejuvenate ourselves but are so much engrossed in being workaholic for surviving that we have forgotten to live life freely.

Hobbies help you to explore your own self. It is the passion which acts as a driving force which gives you happiness and pleasure. Hobbies can be anything that refreshes you and a chance to connect with oneself. It helps to rediscover the hidden talent than one possess. Hobbies can be walking in a garden, trekking, reading, traveling, photography, eating, painting, writing, singing, etc. The list can be exhaustive.

Personal experience says developing a hobby takes you to the other world where it is only you with yourself- No limitations, no deadlines. It soothes your mind and helps to know yourself better. Be a bird and fly wherever you want to.

If you are trekking, nature becomes your best friend and hugs you in his vast mountains. If you are teaching, it feels like in seventh heaven when a small kid comes to you and thanked you for teaching her something new.

There are many reasons why everyone should indulge themselves in their passion in some or the other way. I’ve listed few –
