New Year is a good time for thinking about what can be tried or improved in the next, and maybe end of the first month is a good time to encourage people to keep up with the new “healthy” hobbies that they resolved to start.
I was surprised, with over 500 views, to not see any responses to this thread. Looks attractive for me to use to try out both my new “writing hobby” and maybe persuade someone to take up a new yoga “hobby” or at least restart and try harder on the healthy habits they were planning this year.
In 2018 my mission (possibly another word for “passionate” hobby) became to encourage changes towards healthier living which I think started even earlier when deciding yoga could possibly be beneficial to do everyday. Being an impatient person, I created a 10-minute routine which seemed to incorporate all the elements of real yoga and be expandable to longer practice, if time allowed.
It felt like this tiny yoga and meditation practice was something everyone should do to both stay flexible as they aged and be freer of stresses from daily living, so I kept after friends and family to try it with me. Realized they were getting weary of having me badger them about new healthier habits. I thought to post a video so they’d have an easy way to find it.
Another fun new “hobby” — making a video! I was then very happy to find out that YouTube made it very easy to post the video (that's it at the top) on my channel called Healthy2aHundred. This year I will be adding a second video with my 8-minute Balance and Core-Strength Exercise routine.
I was NOT as happy when starting the blog on WordPress, called Healthy2aHundred.com (will find out now if I succeeded in getting a link back to HorseForum on it that meets the SuperModerator conditions — link is on Home page, SM,) to find out how much more difficult than expected it is for me to learn what is needed to make the blog have all the elements it needs to be a real blog.
Therefore, WordPress has to be hobby for year 2019. Must figure out how to get a sidebar to come up alongside the blog posts where other links and archives can be placed. Must figure out how to tell if it is getting any views. Those things were easy with YouTube and HorseForum. So much to learn with WordPress; so many videos to watch!
Then, probably, trying to figure out how to write so that the blog makes learning about healthy habits interesting enough that other people want to join my experiment will be another task for this year and next.
Thank you, Original Poster, for asking me to tell you about new hobbies, as every little place at which I can tell someone about the yoga video and blog, will help in my 40-year experiment and mission to spread the word about healthier living habits. Wishing all readers a great and healthier 2019!
