Today, we lead extremely busy lives. From our many responsibilities in the workplace to the chores waiting for us back home. There’s hardly any time that we can truly call our own. Is it any surprise then if you struggle to find time for your hobbies while juggling your work and personal life?
In trying to build a successful career, you can end up prioritizing your work, clients, and employer. Back home, you have to prioritize the needs of your family or children. In the end, you are left with no time for yourself and your hobbies. Having a hobby means willingly using your leisure time to do certain activities that you want to do. Maybe it’s playing an instrument, maybe it’s cooking, or maybe it’s something else entirely. Hobbies can work as amazing ways to deal with stress. Having a hobby can also help you relax and recharge yourself for the next day at work.
Here are some ways you can make time for hobbies from your busy life –
Carry your hobby with you
Making your hobby accessible is important. If you love collecting different leaves, carry your scrapbook with you. If you love to sketch or scribble, carry your sketchbook or a pocket diary wherever you go. Carry a book to your doctor’s appointment and read it if the queue is long.
Having a partner will help you be more accountable and force you to make time for your hobby. While some may love spending their alone time with their hobbies, there are others who feel more motivated to do something when they have a buddy to do it with. If you love to work out, get yourself a partner or a buddy who will join you.
Make it a routine
Once you start planning your schedule around your hobby, you’ll find more opportunities to enjoy it. Make it a routine to incorporate your hobby into your schedule. If you enjoy journaling or learning a new language, just dedicate 15-20 minutes a day.
Communicate with your family
Ensure that you are communicating with family, or others who rely on you, that you’re setting aside a set amount of time for yourself and your hobbies. If you will be out playing badminton every Wednesday night, communicate so you all can schedule your other work around it.
