We live in a delusion of happiness and success. Most people believe happiness is on the other side of success, the reality is opposite. If you are tying your happiness to achievement of some goals, you might never get there. The truth is you have to find happiness then success will come. How to be happy dominates discussions in social and medical circles; everyone wants to be happy but the approach is usually the problem. One of the ways to be happy in life is find something you are passionate about, something you are not only interested about but truly enjoy, a hobby.
A hobby enriches your life. It sways your mind schoolwork and any issues to do with studies; the mind can relax when you are doing something you enjoy. There are endless exciting activities to explore in the world; everyone has a hobby. You only need to explore the world and find something new, adopt it and enjoy life. A hobby is something you enjoy.
Here is how hobbies influence school performance.
Studies can be draining, especially if you are specializing in sciences and mathematics. Concentrating for long in such classes blocks an individual’s mind; it can be difficult to understand concepts at the end of a long lesson or week after continuous sessions. Inability of the mind to process more concepts is a characteristic of stress. The best way to relive the mind of such strain and block is diverting to an activity you consider enjoyable.
Engaging in hobbies draw your mind from cares of the world to pleasure. The fact that you enjoy what you are doing is a definition of happiness. Mind unrest and stress largely contributes to poor performance in school; it might be family issues or biological challenges. All these affect concentration in class; engaging in enjoyable activities is the best way to free up the mind. Tutors and administrators should encourage hobbies at school to improve performance of individual students.
Hobbies are not only about escaping from studies and about focusing on pleasure. Key skills are built while you are out in the field; if you are exploring the online community or learning how to make animations, you are developing vital development skills, which will are essential in solving calculations and application of science concepts in class. Moreover, engaging in interesting activities enhances complementary skills; if you succeed in a hobby, you are likely to succeed in class as well. Hobbies build confidence; you will develop better presentation and leadership skills. This is important for any learner with regards to performance. The ability to express and explain ideas on paper or on presentation is a vital skill in academics.
Success in life is dependent on networks and relationship with people of the same interests. Most of hobbies like swimming, playing cards, riding bikes, which are common hobbies at college are more interesting when in a group. If you start learning or practicing such a hobby, you will meet people with similar interests; this is a guarantee. Interacting with people of similar interests is not only fun but also opens up your mind. Everyone has different perspectives and approaches in life, you will likely learn a new skill when you interact with people while playing. It’s not a surprise if you find a study partner while learning a hobby; someone you can complement each other in different study subjects.
Boosts analytical skills and reasoning
Most hobbies are mind engaging; encountering challenges helps in developing your analytical skills and reasoning not only in class but in various aspects of life. If you don’t find your hobby challenging then it is not engaging as it should be hence less enjoyable. If you find sciences and mathematics challenging, a more challenging hobby as a co-curricular activity will help in improving your performance. Find a better hobby and boost your mind’s ability to solve challenges in life.
Prevents bad habits
Typically, students have extra time to engage in unnecessary activities. Most of free time is spent in drugs and self-destructing behaviors. If you have something you enjoy doing and passionate about, there is no time to engage in such behaviors. “An idle mind is the devil’s workshop”; this is applicable in school life. You will have less time to think of non-essential activities; you are likely to get back to studies early in the evening after refreshing your mind practicing hobbies at university. There is no time for wasteful activities when you have hobbies.
Improves focus and concentration
Succeeding in hobbies require the same discipline as academic excellence. Typically, hobbies are challenging and you have to focus and curve your path to success. There is no clear way of winning game of cards, it is about judging the situation at hand and placing the right card at right time. You have to focus on a hobby and concentrate on opponents or the challenge to be satisfied with results. Hobbies help you build these skills, which are necessary in school.
Hobbies vary in people; what you enjoy doing might be draining for me. This is why it is important to spare time and soul-search or simply try different activities and identify two or three hobbies.
