Do you have any hobbies that help prevent one thing taking over your life?

Despite having a demanding job, Lee seems to have a pretty balanced life, with weekly dinners with Mark and Bobby, weekend hikes, and going to the dojo to practice Tae Kwon Do. Do you have any hobbies that help prevent one thing, like work or motherhood, from taking over your life?

I have many hobbies and many friends. I am very diversified. I held a number of positions during my working years and from that gained a lot of insight and diversity.

I have so many hobbies. It would probably be good if I stuck to one at a time.??

Having a high stress job, I needed something to relax me and I found it with acylic painting and also doing freelance work with mosaics. Art truly carried me away, saved me from myself and gave me a new appreciation of many things in Life that I "saw" in a different way after my art classes.

Does reading count??? ha ha

I really admired Lee's ability to separate herself from her work. I imagine that in her profession it would be very easy to become all consumed. While I was teaching, I see now that I lacked balance in my life. I spent weekends grading, writing lessons, and creating manipulative etc. that I would use in my classroom. I often felt overwhelmed. Even going to the grocery was a source of stress because I was constantly obsessed with time or lack of it.

My husband was transferred for his job which provided me the opportunity to walk away from teaching. I'm working hard to develop new interests and testing out a lot of different things. I have been very careful to NOT overload my days. I am much more mindful of creating balance.

Just a good workout at the gym releases work stress for me. Working in the garden also tends to help.

Reading but it is sometimes work as opposed to a hobby. I golf and run, usually not at the same time! ::;-)::

My hobbies include CrossFit, walking my dogs, and reading. My job as a Case Manager for the state is demanding and can at times take over my life....that’s when I have to take a step back and re-prioritizing....Lee was great at separating her work life and personal life creating a good balance. And that’s what we all strive for I believe, balance.

Just a few. Working out at the gym is great because it keeps my psyche upbeat. I also have my cats who take very good care of me. Best thing is a good read!

RE: Do you have any hobbies that help prevent one thing taking over your life?

Yes, I have hobbies. I love to sew and I love to read. Both of these things relax me. I also belong to things going on at our senior center. I go to a lunch ladies group and go to coffee and conversation once a week. I also go to a book group and a quilting. I think my life is pretty well balanced between quiet time at home and social things.
