Hobbies give opportunities for personality development. Hobbies help in reducing stress and improving mental capabilities. Hobbies improve health and reduce the risk of depression and dementia. Overall, hobbies a good for the development of a personality.
Actually hobbies instigate creativity and sometimes might give you a lot of fresh ideas about life in general. Fun fact, what geeks tend to work on as side projects in the weekend, eventually becomes what mainstream people work in the weekdays. This is because sometimes side projects would represent a lot of underutilized time & effort.

Sometimes financially stable life doesn't help you become a better individual. You should pursue your hobbies consistently. My hobby is reading books, it is helping me in building confidence, making my personality more interesting, and yes of course helping in my writing career.

I view wellness as a construct made up of 5 components (positive achievement, meaning, engagement, positive emotion, and relationships). My hobbies are focused around maximizing these things. In turn, I feel and perform better in all aspects of my life. I highly recommend reading the works of Martin Seligman, former president of the American Psychological Association, for more context. His frameworks are life changing.

We need to prioritize our hobbies just as much as we prioritize work because hobbies really make us better people. Hobbies allow you to destress yourself while remaining mentally productive. My hobby is reading. When I started working as a writer with the guys from, it helped me a lot as I gained some useful skills when reading. And it was easy for me to look for the necessary information fast. Moreover, I read that one study suggests that people who take part in leisure activities have fewer negative emotions and are less stressed. So, find time for your hobbies and be better individuals.
