Not sure? Imagine you’re completely exhausted. What thing could you still find the energy to talk about even then? Politics? Sports? Gardening? Whatever it is you could use more of it in your life.

Being involved with something you love is great for the brain. It sets off the nucleus accumbens, an area of the brain that controls how we feel about life. In other words, it makes you happy. Having a regular hobby can aid focus, enhance your creativity, boost self-esteem and much more.

Being defined only by your job, or other life circumstances will make you crazy. It can lead to anxiety, depression and many other unpleasant things. Even if you only set aside a few minutes a day for your ‘thing’ it will make a difference you can feel.
