How important can a hobby be in your weight loss efforts? Do you think that having a hobby can prevent you from gaining weight or even help you lose weight?
Thinking about what a hobby means can help you in your efforts with negative behavior.
When you start a hobby there is usually a learning curve. You have to learn how to do which hobby you start. If you decide to crochet or the quilt, take some lessons. Or maybe you've decided to start painting or jewelry, or playing tennis. If you've never done these things before, you'll probably need to spend some time learning how to do them either by self-learning online or by going to some kind of offline classes. Whatever hobby you take up there will likely be given a given amount of time to learn about how to do this particular hobby.
When you work on your hobby, you are very busy. Maybe you will be too busy thinking about eating or snacks. You can even be so busy that you forget to stop and eat. Could this really happen? I know that happened to me. When I am busy working on a project, I will not stop and take a break to make a sandwich or make something, so before I know that hours have passed and I have forgotten the hungry feeling that I thought , I had. Because for me, many times I'm not really hungry, but just bored or wanting something to do, and since I'm already busy, I don't need food at the moment.
I have been making jewelry for 10 years and I find that when I get involved in a project it is very difficult to tear myself away from it and even have lunch. I say I want to go downstairs and get something in a little while, and before I know it, hours have passed. This worked for me many years ago when I also quit smoking "cold turkey". I purposely decided that I should keep my hands busy, so I took courses in crocheting and blanketing. I got so busy that I would never stop to get a cigarette. I made a lot of cool things for my house and everyone in my family got crocheted slippers for Christmas. But another bonus was that in the classes, I met other interesting people and expanded my horizons further. One woman taught me macramé and I started making macramé tables and purses, which gave me another hobby to pursue. You never know where a road will take you when you begin on that path. Just take the first step of the journey and new horizons will open. And when they do, your old habits no longer seem so interesting.
Think about how young children never look hungry. They always play and will never stop eating. That is the last thing on their minds. They have way too much fun. So if you can figure out a way to focus your thoughts and energies away from food or whatever your negative habit is and replace it with a positive one, you will be able to gain control again.
Having a hobby can do a lot more than just help with your weight loss efforts. Having a hobby develops new pathways in the brain. It helps fight dementia and keeps your brain healthy. It keeps you busy and prevents boredom. And sometimes having a hobby can help you meet new friends depending on the type of hobby.
And the best thing about having a hobby or craft that you enjoy is that there is a bonus. You end up with some kind of concrete finished product. If you are a scrapbook maker than you have memories to share. If you knit or crochet, you have lovely pieces to store or give as gifts. Paintings can be hung or even sold. And jewelry can be given as gifts or sold in a business. All of these things are REALLY mundane items that came into being because you didn't eat or snack and you didn't even realize it. So the next time you feel like fighting to control your food cravings, you may want to consider taking up a hobby of some kind to keep your mind and hands busy. You will find so many benefits that you will not even miss the non snacking part. Before you know it, you have changed your entire way of behaving and your life patterns and daily routines will be different.
