Not only does it relieve stress, but also stimulates your cerebral cortex by building new synapses and strengthening the existing ones.

3. Dancing

A vigorous activity such as dancing pumps blood to the brain, giving it the glucose and oxygen it needs to function well.

Honestly saying, dancing really brings a huge change in your body!

I know it because I used to dance as an exercise to reduce my tummy last year. So, I includes this hobby in this list because it really does magic to your body.

Apart from body, it helps you think in complex ways that matter a lot!

 

 

 

 

4. Travelling

There are few things which help understanding human history, nature, cultures, languages, psychologies, religions, architecture, movement, urban design, transportation systems, and the inter-relationship.

Varieties of clothes, foods, and a new bond.

Here is a quote from Danny Kaye

To Travel is to make a journey into yourself

 

Travelling is one of the best investment in yourself. The more you travel, the more neural connections you will make.
