How Hobbies Can Directly Reflect Your Social Status?

We all know what a hobby is. It is an activity done regularly in one’s leisure time for pleasure. Agree or not, in our leisure we reveal what kind of people we are. Let’s start with a simple thought.

What is your hobby?

Well, before you fix one if your hobby involves engaging in creative and artistic pursuits, then my regards to you, as you are in the minority of people in the world who actually take hobbies seriously.

It doesn’t mean that your hobby always has to have a purpose. As long as it gets you diverted from your regular chores into something interesting for yourself, you are on the right track.

10 Reasons Why You Should Read Every Day

Just a quick search on the list of hobbies would give you a glimpse of what am I trying to convey here. I remember the times when hobbies meant simple habits like playing football or reading a book or something simple. Even reading a book, in most places nowadays, means a kindle book. E-books can never replace or give the same pleasure as real hard copies.

How Hobbies Can Directly Reflect Your Social Status?

How Hobbies Can Directly Reflect Your Social Status?

When you interact with a bunch of people from different countries, you can see that hobbies have become a thing of money nowadays. Not making money, but one that consumes money.

Golf is, of course, a beautiful game. But when someone says golfing is their hobby, you can well know how not so feasible it is to have a golf club of yours or even rent it out to play. A friend of mine is pursuing his hobby of shooting, gun shooting, and it quite amazes me how good it is to do something you like.

Are Hobbies Consuming More Money Than Before?

On the other hand, the thing that twitches me is the fact that how monetarily abled you have to be to pursue a hobby like this. Simple as that, now that I could afford and have a cruiser bike with me, I would say, biking is my hobby.

One theory of this present world is, when your grandfather was young, he would have worked to feed the family; your father would have played street games; you would have played personal computer games or play stations; your kid would jump into advanced virtual reality and games.

This may change everyone’s position in society, for example, your father might be the grandpa of this theory and you take up the father role. And this goes on.

As you stabilize and meet your basic needs, you start investing time and money on yourself, where your hobbies get inclined more towards money consumption and less towards self-improvement.

Though this doesn’t apply to everyone out there, money does have its say in most people’s hobbies. Money is hence inevitably, directly proportional to your hobby. On a funny note, raise your kids to be a PC gamers, and they’ll never have money for drugs.

To quote someone random, “When a habit begins to cost money, it is called a hobby”. We can change this. Find something that interests you, improves you, and doesn’t burn a hole in your pocket too.

What are your thoughts on hobbies? Do you think hobbies cost you money these days? We would love to hear your perspective on this topic. So don’t hesitate to leave your thoughts in the comments section.

Happy Hobbying!!
