Pursuing a hobby makes you a better employee, according to The New York Times. When people do things that make them feel good, like a hobby, it activates the area of the brain that controls how we feel about life, says Dr. S. Ausim Azizi, chairman of the department of neurology at Temple University. Hobbies also enhance self-esteem and self-confidence. Feeling that you are solely defined by your job can raise your chances of experiencing depression and burnout because you don’t have a perception of yourself outside of work.
