The Importance Of Hobbies

Posted on

Hobbies are more than just collecting coins or buttons. It is a term used to describe an enjoyable activity done during spare time. For some people it can be knitting, for others it can be dancing. As long as it does not harm anyone, any hobby is alright and to be honest, it is vital that you have a hobby. Here are the reasons why.

It helps relieve stress

Life is stressful. You have work, chores, homework if you are in school, kids to take care of if you are a parent and none of this is easy. It is tough and at times can be too much to handle. Stress is bad for health. Period. It leads to cardiovascular disease, blood pressure issues, migraines and more. Therefore you need to find a way to relieve your stress and one of the best ways to do so is to take up a hobby. If you enjoy dancing, go for dance classes Cheltenham. If you don’t have the time to go a lesson, then just dance to your heart’s content in any spare time you get at home. By doing something that you enjoy, you would feel good and happy because you will find yourself relaxing and letting go of the stress as each moment passes.

It allows you to develop skills or hone a talent.

You may never know you have the talent to do something unless you try it first. Hobbies are a great way to find that something you are good at, and if you don’t find it that’s fine. You can develop it as a skill. It’s not just about the activity itself though. When you go to dance classes, you don’t only develop the skill to dance, you learn the skill of empathy, you learn to be patient, you learn to be determined and you learn to be creative. You learn so many things other than just the activity itself, and these are just a few of them that you can learn.

If you are passionate about a cause and you want to raise awareness for the cause as well as earn some money for the cause or charity, one of the best things that you can consider doing is to host an event where all of the proceeds go directly to your charity or cause. While this may seem simple enough, it does involve a lot of work in terms of event organizing however if done right you will be likely to have a lot of patronage and therefore bring in a lot of money to charity. Similarly you will find that your event itself will attract many people because it says on all advertisements that the money is going directly to charity. Therefore even a person who has never donated to charity in their life will feel good about themselves for attending your event even if their only intention is to experience the event.

Pick a charity and choose an event

The first thing you will need to do is to pick a charity that you will want all of the donations going toward. There would be a hundred causes and charities that you can choose from however it is advisable for you to choose the one that is closest to your heart because this will serve as incentive for you to give your hundred percent best into organizing the event. Once you have picked the charity you will then want to think of what sort of event you would like to have. One of the most popular types of charity events around is a concert or a stage play that is popular among the younger generation. Alternatively you could organize a tribute show of one of the most popular oldies bands such as the Beatles or Abba giving the younger generation a chance to experience the music of yesteryear.

A tribute show can be exciting because there are many things that you can do with an event such as this. For example, you may have a tribute to a band such as Abba where you will also be able to ask all of the concert goers to come to the event in seventies themed outfits and there after host a seventies themed party after the event which will bring in even more funds to your charity. Another idea is to sell seventies themed clothing and accessories at the gate where all proceeds will again go towards your chosen charity.

Raise awareness for your cause

While raising money for your cause and charity is extremely important as is giving your party goers the best possible experience for the money that they have paid, it is important to keep in mind that your event is being hosted to raise awareness of your cause and therefore it is important that throughout the concert, the party and whatever other events you host you show videos and show facts about the people or animals that the charity supports and why it is important for your party goers to continue supporting the charity even after the concert is over. Uptempo Entertainment Services can help you book the best band to entertain your guests.. You may give out posters flyers and other brochures with information about the charity and its causes.
