How to develop a new hobby?

Hobby is something which is not self-imposed but it comes from within oneself. It might be somewhat difficult and boring when you start. It might sound boring to do similar activity again and again. But you start enjoying it once it becomes an habit. Remember one thing that never create an hobby which disturbs/harms anybody. Also keep in mind that always choose a hobby which suits you best, don't try to take it as an challenge which you must complete.

Steps to follow while making a new hobby-

1.) Take one day off from everything meaning everything.

2.) From morning itself you start doing every sort of activity which you like to do it (this is for people who are confused among different activities).

3.) Make a time-table of all the activities. Now make a table and mark first column as "Hobby name", second column as "Time Taken to Complete" and third most important column is "How much I enjoyed it" and Most important column is "Is it Helpful".

4.) Now fill the complete table with the true data. Don't write false details as it is going to be your loss.
