What is HOBBY

hobby is a regular activity or interest that is undertaken for pleasure, typically done during one's leisure time.

Hobbies are the most fruitful pastime harboring personal interest and enjoyment. Every person has a passion for something that he engages in leisure time. This activity of passion gets termed as hobbies. Common examples of hobbies are stamps collecting, creative or artistic pursuits, sports, gardening, cooking, reading etc. Hobbies help us to relax through the pursuit of some engagement that brings about personal fulfillment.
Hobbies are practiced for interest and enjoyment, rather than financial reward. Examples include collecting, creative and artistic pursuits, making, tinkering, sports and adult education. Engaging in a hobby can lead to acquiring substantial skill, knowledge and experience. However, personal fulfillment is the aim. People enjoy participating in competitive hobbies such as athletics, hockey, tennis etc.
What are hobbies for some people are professions for others: a chef may enjoy playing computer games as a hobby, while a professional game tester might enjoy cooking. Generally speaking, the person who does something for fun, not remuneration, is called an amateur (or hobbyist), as distinct from a professional.
