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. - Britgirl

That and when I sing along and I feel I did a good job with singing I feel fulfilled - Curti2594

2 Writing

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

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. - Turkeyasylum

Everyone in school and my mom says I have good writing skills, my old friends asked me how did I do it... Read lots of online articles. - PrincessKiana

When you're bored, think of an idea and start writing! - Jbone123

3 Playing an Instrument

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

Does Electronic music count as playing an instrument? - letdot52

I love playing my clarinet. I especially like my band class at school. - Minecraftcrazy530

Keyboards for the win! - MLPFan

4 Drawing/Painting

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! - keycha1n

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.

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. - Pegasister12

Drawing for the win!

5 Reading

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... - Britgirl

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 - 170253

Reading sends me to a new world. If only temporarily, it's the most magical escape. - keycha1n

First of all I love all of these but reading is awesome it makes me calm.

6 Sports/Exercise

I agree squash relaxes me especially when I eat it

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

7 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. - Britgirl

I can't dance to save my life. - RiverClanRocks

8 Singing

I have a huge vocal range but I can't sing very well when I record myself, I can sing only 4-5 notes in the 6th octave, C6, D6, E6, F6, and F#6. 2 years ago, I only had 2 octaves in my voice and I could only sing up to C5 until I started to sing the hard songs that were higher than my range. I can sing "I will always love you" and experience a little off-keyness and voice cracks but that's ok. - PrincessKiana

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. - Britgirl

9 Fishing

I just love fishing (14 year old) I go to river and fish totaly natural its just you and the water silence and when you catch the fish is like the best moment then you make frie it and eat it very fun

10 Gaming

There's a lot of video game worlds and adventures await you. I'm sure you'll have fun! - Delgia2k

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. - EvilAngel

Although it's fun, you can't play too many... - Turkeyasylum

My collection is massive, but you have to remember that gaming isn't the ONLY thing we do. - Garythesnail

Oh yeah! I'm level 14 in Splatoon but I think I'm bad but I'm awesome at Mario games, in Mario Kart 8, I always get first place. - PrincessKiana

The Contenders

11 Acting

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

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. - Britgirl

12 Colouring

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

13 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. - PositronWildhawk

I fight for fun, occasionally. - Therandom

14 Songwriting

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

15 Model Railways
16 Academics

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

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