Having a hobby is good for anyone’s mental and physical health. It is something that keeps people stimulated and helps them escape from the demands of life in a positive and healthy way. Hobbies help create balance which is what people need to stay healthy so they don’t get lost only in a world of responsibility which can lead to burnout.
