Quality Hobbies MEGA-THREAD

16 posts in this topic

With the power of Wikipedia, I present you this humongous list:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_hobbies

Also, I encorage you to share your favourite ones, preferably that are aligned with Self-Actualization. 

For me they would be :

Biking

Calisthenics / ring training / Weight lifting

Dance, Shaking, Vibing to music. 

Beatboxing. 

Journaling, Writing posts, Brainstorming. 

Targeted thinking ; Contemplation. 

"Visualization" Aka imagining how could things be, how would I like them to be . . . 

Doing Free asociation Improv with friends to vibe. 

Improv Rapping . This one is actually an activity of letting go , wittiness , connecting dots in the moment and literaly getting in Flow state.

It's really cool and if you strip it away from all the cultural baggage, the ideology and whatnot, it ends up being pretty cathartic and fun if you are willing of letting go of the need to look cool / controll that you don't say something stupid, etc. 

 

Researching on Google / Youtube, going down some rabbitholes, clearing my recommended videos so that I get access to that new juicy stuff I know nothing about rather than being stuck in the same content I normally consume. 

 

Work in progress. Your turn!

Is biting nails a quality hobby? Define quality.

I recently picked up painting with acrylic.
I use it specifically to let go of the default todo-list operation mode as well as releasing emotions.


Bearing with the conditioned in gentleness, fording the river with resolution, not neglecting what is distant, not regarding one's companions; thus one may manage to walk in the middle. H11L2
