This question has been daunting many of us since our school time and till job interviews. This is supposed to be a very casual fun question, but the majority of us struggle when questioned about it.
Well, it seems difficult. With so much struggle in our lives where people are busy trying to meet their targets, worrying about their kids, trying to get that deal done, maintaining social relationships. The idea of having a hobby may sound too frivolous to some of us.

How to get time for hobby.
Some of us may say that we’re just too occupied to do this. Every Person in this world gets the same 24 hrs. It’s up to you how busy you wish to get with work. Prioritizing is a skill, some people don’t hone it. This could be developed. The moment we understand the worth of “Me time”, we’ll be able to find time for it just like we do every worthy thing.
