Experts always say we’re supposed to have a hobby, so we don’t get too stressed out by life. But how many of us actually have one?
A new survey found about 75% of us DO have at least one hobby we take part in regularly. 25% couldn’t think of any hobbies they pursue. Do video games count?
The study also looked at hobbies that USED to be popular. Here are the top 10 hobbies that have died out . . .
1. Being interested in trains, or building model train sets.
2. Quilting and embroidery.
3. Astrology, where you’re truly into the zodiac and pay attention to it.
4. Scrapbooking. If anything, people use apps and do it virtually now.
5. Home brewing. That one’s a little surprising, because there was a pretty big home-brewing boom a while back. But there are so many craft beers now, who has the time?
6. Squash and racquetball.
7. Fixing up an old car. Maybe because no one knows how to anymore?
8. Astronomy. Meaning you own a telescope and actually use it on a regular basis.
10. Toy collecting. The whole Beanie Babies fad was 20 years ago.
