Hobbies are wonderful things because they help us to get rid of stress and stain of pressure of school , office and home works. There are I feel quite good hobbies like Writing letters to your foreign pen pals ,collecting stamps, reading books based on science, doing hand craft items and meeting your friends. By writing letters to your pen pals you can tell them about your country. When you receive replies you get to know about his or her country’s food habit ,culture, customs and their life style. By reading books you get to know many things which you are not familiar with. When you read books based on science you grab many things that you need to know for your future life. Off course there were times when I made some money during my summer vacations by selling the hand made craft items to known people and some nearby shops. Share with me as how you spend your hobbies as useful ones..

I love hobbies. Hobbies are fun. They are educative too and in the lost run, if properly pursued, it can bring wealth. I have written 2 articles in the internet on imortance of hobbies. I am a philatelist and numismatist.

Yes subathra. I think I agree with you on this. Hobbies makes us get rid of our worries, stress etc in order for us to be happy at a moment. They help us forget about our problems at that moment. Thanks

this is really a good topic,i have all the hobbies you mentioned above.lol,but that was years ago.once i collected stamps,but later,i gave up,because i dont have many letters to receive,and sometimes when i got a letter,the stamp on it had gone. a little girl i know like painting,and she has a lot of tools for painting,she showed me her pictures.they are really very beautiful and full of creation,i saw her persistence in her eyes,and passion.her dream is to be an artist in drawing pictures,i think it is good to have dream,it makes our life meaningful.

Having two very active children can really be stressful not only physically but emotionally as well. To relieve me of stress, one great hobby that I always do is gardening. I just love tending to plants-flowering or ornamentals. Planting, seeing and looking at a variety of the colors of their flowers and leaves can ease the strain and pressure of the day. Gardening makes our yard look neat and clean too. My plants are a haven to some of the insects - harmful or not, like spiders, dragonflies, grasshoppers, snails, caterpillars and butterflies that my children love to watch, catch and sometimes dissect. This becomes a learning experience for them since it supplements their science lessons in school. When the weather does not permit me to tend to my plants, my alternative hobbies are reading, cross stitch and watching children's movies.

More or less we have the same hobbies. Few years back I like writing poems and I have lots of them, just for my file and some still on file, some lost. And I read them once in a while. I also tried that stamp collecting, but I did not seriously go into it. I also read books of all types, much more when I was a librarian, but now only important things I read, no more pockets books. I read the headlines and discard news without relevance. I still like making frames of beautiful views and pictures and I like the end result. I just order frames and I do the framing of the pictures and views that I like. I hang it our, give to friends and family members on occassions. I also like travelling. I like to tour the whole of my country and there are only few places I have to go and some foreign travel, coz Ive been only to nearby asian country. I like exchanging ideas like what we are doing here in my lot.

you opinion is good,through reading we can find a lot of experiences that we don't have,because we don't have so much time to experience so many things,and experience is only a process,the mental process or a the process of reality,both compromise our experiences.and another way of like this is communicating,communicating may by not a hobby but a normal condition of life,but communicating about various topics is a good hobby in my opinion

Well subathra, whenever whenever i am free i just go outing or play some games. If its the case of my office and i am very much tensed, then i just browse for a while and make myself normal. I enjoy being like this and i hope that it will be the same for you too.

Hi Dear, hope u must be doing well. Hobbies are really wonderful thing and one of best pass time and sure if u take them seriously u might learn a lot and earn a lot as well. When i was in school.my four hobbies were Playing game with friends Pen pals Stamp collecting Reading books and novels. as net was not there at time and i was in boarding school I learn a lot from Pen pals and Stamp collecting, i came to know names of more than 100 countries, thier currency, thier cultures, thier fruits and much more. I still have about 1000 stamps with me, i cant continue due to busy schedule so might give to my son if intrested or to any nephew or niece who like it, If u r serious collector then u can earn from it too. Now after i am married and on job and job ib textiles so i am left with only hobbies of reading, watching TV , and in office INTERNET its intresting, lovely and Fun, it help to broaden ur vision Healthy hobbies must be encouraged take care
