Did you spend time on your favorite hobby over the weekend?

Do you even have a hobby?

I pretty much gave up on having hobbies for 6+ years.

I was too focused on my role at my last company that I didn’t prioritize taking time to enjoy life, so unfortunately, I burned out.

There’s no reason for you to make the same mistake I did.

As I prepare to head back to work after a fun Labor Day weekend, I wanted to write a quick note to encourage you to find a hobby. It’s one of the more practical things you can do to avoid burnout.

If you already have one, great! Make sure you block out time to enjoy it on a regular basis.

If you don’t have a hobby, you can start by finding something you enjoy doing.

Find something that uses your creative juices.

Find a hobby that helps you be physically active. This is especially important if you’re like me and stare at a computer all day at work.

Here are a few hobby ideas to get you thinking:

  • ​Playing guitar
  • Knitting
  • Yoga with Friends
  • Playing sports
  • Gardening
  • Starting a business
  • Writing
  • Reading
  • Traveling
  • Swimming
  • Building things
  • Rock climbing

There are thousands of other hobbies in the world, so if none of the above sound appealing, start googling!

The point of finding a hobby is to regularly spend time doing something you enjoy, other than work (watching Netflix doesn’t count as a hobby, by the way).

So what do you think? Which hobby are you going to spend more time on?
