How to maintain a hobby or hobby

This post analyzes why a hobby or hobby may stop being exciting and proposes some possible solutions.

Getting interested in something sometimes takes a lot of effort in the decision and learning; it is usually a shame that, for various reasons, the hobby or hobby that we liked and distracted ceases to interest us, or we abandon it. On the other hand, maintaining a hobby in the long term can be complicated for different reasons, among which the following stand out:

1-Lack of motivation. Many hobbies are based on long-term goals (for example, playing tennis very well) or repeated (playing tennis matches with people of more or less the same level). The person can become demotivated if these goals are too difficult or too easy.

2-Routine, lack of novelty. There are quite a few hobbies in which change is essential, and if it is null or minimal, boredom can appear (returning to the example of tennis, always playing with the same person, in the same place and with the same results).

3-Difficulties to carry out the hobby, for various reasons:

–the discomfort with the place of practice,

-excessive spending,

-physical discomfort or health problems, stress caused by the hobby itself

– social relationship problems, especially in family or work conciliation

This type of difficulty can be permanent (serious knee problems for the tennis player) or repetitive or progressive (difficulty finding a partner to play with, increased fees at the regular tennis club, etc.)

Consequently, the mechanisms to try to maintain a hobby in case problems appear will be related to the causes.
