Think you don't have time for a hobby? You probably didn't think these women did either. Notoriously good at putting others first, ladies, it's time to invest in your time!
Wondering what to choose? Well, that bit doesn’t really matter when half the fun is trying out new things. I think the most important thing is to not feel like you need to set aside lots of hours for your hobby (unless you want to). This can lead to feeling overwhelmed and ditching the whole plan. Make the project achievable and you’re good to go.
Ping pong, SurveyMonkey and knitting don’t typically feature in the one blog, but then that’s half the appeal. Here’s how a few famous women who are nailing the work/life balance.
Susan is nuts about table tennis (or ping pong as it is commonly known in the US). In fact, she went so far as to open a ping pong bar in Los Angeles.
Meryl is a knitter and credits her calmness to the relaxing repetition of knitting. Not only is this hobby easily transportable it’s a great way to fill it long days on a movie set.
When she’s not serving an ace on courts around the world, Serena is on the SurveyMonkey board. (Surveymonkey they are a free online survey tool for businesses and organisations).
You may not be familiar with the name but she runs a little company called IBM – CEO, Chairman and President no doubt. Ginny is big on Broadway shows and scuba diving showing us variety is the spice of life.
