Hobbies Are Great – level 2

15-07-2022 15:00

A psychology magazine wrote about why a hobby is important for people. Firstly, it gives you structured time. Secondly, it can rejuvenate you.

Thirdly, it lowers your stress. Fourthly, you meet more people who also do the hobby. Fifthly, you are more interesting when you do more activities.

The sixth reason is what the hobby does to the brain: the brain grows and works better because you are learning a new skill. You learn faster and slow down ageing. The brain also grows more material to keep it working well.

Having a hobby helps your life in many ways!

Difficult words: rejuvenate (give you energy), stress (the body’s reaction to difficult situations), ageing (getting older).
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
