What Are Good Hobbies?

The hobby of radio controlled air crafts has been around for over 60 years. Radio controlled flying toys or RC aircrafts used to be very expensive and only hobbyists with money were able to afford them. Today however, with improvements to the RC hobby, RC toys are becoming more affordable and accessible.

Although the remote control flying discs has gone from covert military operations to a public backyard, it still carries a certain stigma in the legal system. Is this not really just some huge hobby? Should the hobby be considered a form of expression or a form of gambling?

This is a tough question to answer because every new hobby faces its difficulties. But I would suggest that the definition of the word “Hobby” itself should change from what it used to be decades ago. In our society today, people refer to things as hobbies when they are having a leisure time or when they are doing something for enjoyment or relaxation. For instance, collecting stamps is no longer considered a hobby. But collecting comic books would most likely be considered a hobby as long as the collector is not selling the comics and it is being collected for pleasure.

Another way to look at this is by looking at what your hobby is. You can use hobby as a verb meaning to do something or to perform an action at random or in an unplanned manner. A hobby could also be defined as a project undertaken for the purpose or one’s own satisfaction and at the expense of others. Another example of a hobby could be collecting certain things or items and spending your free time doing the research on these items in order to fully understand them.

Many people define hobbies differently. An interest can turn into a hobby quickly and without much planning. These types of hobbies include but are not limited to, stamp collecting, history, music, art, cooking, baking, sewing and gardening. As you can see, there is a hobby for everyone and every imaginable interest or topic. This wide selection of hobbies is another reason why hobbies are so enjoyable.

Some common hobbies that most people participate in are sports, stamp collecting, cooking, sewing, baking, reading, woodworking, gardening, baseball, horseback riding, hiking, mountain climbing, martial arts, fitness and weight loss. A good hobby for most people is a hobby because you get to spend time with friends and family members. You can spend time with your children and grandchildren. Spending your spare time with your family and friends is a great hobby.
