Top Ten Most Fulfilling Hobbies

The Top Ten
1 Listening to Music

Transports you mentally to a time and a place you felt / feel happiest. Discovering new music is amazing.

That and when I sing along and I feel I did a good job with singing I feel fulfilled

I have a rock music library

Norah Jones all the way

2 Playing an Instrument

Probably my favorite hobby, my second favorite being TheTopTens. I massively rely on both of them for my entertainment.

I love playing my clarinet. I especially like my band class at school.

Does Electronic music count as playing an instrument?

Keyboards for the win!

3 Writing

I've always enjoyed writing, as long as I get to pick what I write. If I don't get to pick what I write, I hate it.

There is no limit on what you can write. The total freedom you have is mind-blowing.

I love writing! Especially stories, that's when my brain fills up with ideas.

When you're bored, think of an idea and start writing!

4 Reading

Most kids my age can barely read a children's book, and it takes them 5 minutes to read three sentences out loud just because they don't read. The have extremely limited vocabularies too. People should start reading more often.

Many years of reading psychological / detective and crime thrillers has helped me develop a sensibly suspicious mind and a very observant eye, which has proved very useful...

Reading is a good hobby to have. It is not only a good hobby but can be very beneficial you. It can help you with your vocabulary, your comprehension skills, and much more

Reading sends me to a new world. If only temporarily, it's the most magical escape.

5 Sports/Exercise

I'm not relaxed unless I've exercised at least two hours every day. Otherwise I can't sleep or stand still

Running, swimming, squash relaxes my whole body and mind.

I agree squash relaxes me especially when I eat it

6 Drawing/Painting

Visual representation of what you feel is perhaps,far more imaginative and breathtaking than showing it in textual form. When writing you just imagine things and right them down, the whole world has different views on it and you feel as if the world misunderstood you, however when you draw it, you get a sense of gratification and everyone else can see properly what you mean.I believe drawing it's the most fulfilling hobby.

Art is quite furfilling, you spend hours doing what you love wilst concentrating, some may even zone out, and after a couple of hours you've got a great masterpiece to showoff or to display. Personally, more people should ry this hobby.

Why thank you Tina! I was on this list simply to add/vote for this =P. It's a very fulfilling hobby because the opportunities are endless and the journey is difficult. The outcome, however, if you keep grinding on, is what makes it all worth it!

I draw, but in anime/manga style. I can only draw cute chibi animals at the moment, but I have successfully drawn a neko girl before.

7 Fishing

Every call I catch salmon on the river and smoke them. Every other year, pink salmon run, so I can legally catch up 6 per day, which only takes an hour because there are so many of them. From above it looks like a dark blog it the middle of the river.

Nothing like it

8 Gaming

Absolutely. This and music are easily my top two here, followed by writing and reading. They are 4 things that allow you to be transported to another place, one where you can forget aboutttroubles. Good list sweetie.

It must be so relaxing to be lost in the videogame you're playing. I personally find it relaxing to watch someone play a a game.

It's a lot of fun! It's even better when you play great co-op games with friends, like Kirby's Return to Dream Land.

There's a lot of video game worlds and adventures await you. I'm sure you'll have fun!

9 Singing

For a lot of people yes, but for me, I can't even sing in tune in my mind. I can hold water on a fork better than I can hold a tune. Not joking.

I don't want to damage anybody's ears

10 Dancing

Literally any dance! Dad dance to a complex, romantic rumba or a cheeky Charleston. Every single dance allows freedom of expression and tells a story.

I can't dance to save my life.

The Contenders
11 Acting

Loved my times doing acting, simple productions, workshops, classroom, readings. Dramatizing song.

Improv is one of my favorites. It's hysterical and you can't mess up if you can recover well enough.

Being someone else...getting into the mind of someone totally different from your own personality is so liberating. And to be appreciated for it is perhaps even better.

12 Martial Arts

I often find that I can use my martial art, either with slow, soothing move recaps or with every adrenaline molecule in my body, to clear my mind and come back to life stronger.

O do this twice a week,and it works out the mind as well as the body.

13 Colouring

Zen adult colouring is amazing for keeping your creative mind open. The complex patterns allows you to be totally free. Anything goes.

14 Academics

Never stop learning - the more information and knowledge that you collect - the more the world will be at your oyster.

They are nessasery, and they help you get to places you wanted to get to, including mastering favorite hobbies.

15 Songwriting

Now this is what I'm talking about. And writing good ones.

16 Model Railways

I’m a model train enthusiast. I’ve tried several hobbies before, each has good qualities. But nothing can touch the special quality model railroading has to offer. It takes all the qualities that every other hobby has and combines them into one ultimate hobby. Art, thinking, creativity, history, and fun are all key aspects to this incredible hobby.

17 Knitting

Knitting is when you can calm yourself, focus on intricate yarns and designs, and when you tend to reflect upon yourself more...

18 Playing Cards
19 Watching Movies

I love movies!

20 Hunting

Back to basics. Love for nature.

21 Cooking

definitely fulfilling. You can know exactly what you're eating instead of whatever they give you at restaurants/cafeterias, you get to serve others, you get to be creative and personalize your meals
