Running and 3PM dance parties are some of our favourite hobbies at WEGO Health. Tell us, what are YOUR hobbies? Love to crochet? Can’t stop collecting rocks? Take photographs of everything? Share your favourite past times.
I think hobbies are a pretty fundamental coping strategy, to be honest. We all need our pain distractions and things we can get really into. Things that are just for us, not necessarily things we Must do, but things we enjoy to do.
For me, I’m all about introvert hobbies.
I have been an avid reader since I was a wee kid. I love fantasy fiction novels. I consume books. And hoard them as well. Although the Kindle has helped with my hoarding tendencies slightly.
I also love writing. I write fantasy fiction novels and self-publish them. I am working on the second in a new series right now. Nothing better than reading fantasy than writing it. Getting absorbed into a world of your own creation. I write non-fiction as well and those tend to be health-related articles. However, fiction is a true pleasure of mine.
This is my writing blog: Lil Hamilton Also feel free to check out the novels I currently have posted on Amazon.
I also love blogging. I have developed this blog for many years. Around a decade I think. It started elsewhere. Moved it twice in fact. Cultivated it. Grown it. And I think it is getting better every day. It is something I am passionate about for sure. Partly for raising awareness and partly because I enjoy the act itself. I would not consistently be doing it if I did not enjoy it.
Finally, part of my raising awareness is running my Facebook Page Making Invisible Disabilities Visible. Part of that is finding research to post. But I also create images, memes, and posters… and this I think is a creative outlet for me. It has become an interesting hobby for me. I could just share images from other sites, but I take pleasure in creating my own. I also from time to time write poetry and put that to images to post to either of these pages.
Here is one of my older poems.
You might notice none of these hobbies require me leaving the house. As I said, all my hobbies are introverted ones. I make a fine hermit really.
I do go out and play card games with friends though, so I do get out and about once in a while!
