Some people believe that hobbies need to be difficult to be enjoyable. To what extent do you agree or disagree?

One doesn’t have to look far, in current circumstances throughout the world, to see that hobbies play a significant role in one’s enjoyment. There is a school of thought which contends that leisure activities should be hard to enjoy. Conversely, others argue that hobbies do not need to be tough to delight in. To my way of thinking, I have to agree with later view.

To begin with, it is immediately apparent that in today’s hectic life style, everyone wants to engage themselves into various leisure events which can help them to relax, refresh and recharge.  The level of toughness for these events can be hard or easy. However, based on personal experience, I can say that a difficult hobby doesn’t guarantee happiness. For example, my close friend spends more than 2 hours a day in rock climbing after his office hours. Although, he is quite good at this but I have never seen him happy after his training gets over.  Instead, I have found him mentally drenched as well as tensed.

At the other end of spectrum, it is abundantly clear that indulging into less difficult events bring definite happiness. In general, to pursue such hobby, person does not need to allocate and spend significant time and finance in learning as well as in continuing. To illustrate, I have seen numbers of people whose primary hobby is singing, reading or even playing chess, are happiest person on earth.

The state of affairs relating to this matter in my country, Australia, is not a great deal different from the experiences of nations throughout the world.

At the end of day, when all is said and done, I pen down saying that difficult hobbies are time and resource intensive and not in realm of every person.  I strongly believe that less challenging hobbies are much more enjoyable as everyone including kids as well as old people can give hands on regardless their economic situation.
