ACCORDING to research, last Monday was officially known as ‘Blue Monday’, the most miserable date in the calendar.
But the heading in one of last Monday’s daily newspapers read, ‘Model Railways can get your life back on track’.
The article went on to say that scientists have identified that hobbies, which see a surge in popularity at this time of year, can help boost our mood.
The writer explained that he had bought his two sons a Hornby OO gauge starter set for Christmas, although secretly it was for himself.
It is said that ‘hobbyists’ have lower rates of depression and many famous people are known to have various hobbies including model railways, stamp collecting and enjoying puzzle and board games amongst other things.
In todays world many people can even treat going to church as a hobby, just something to do to pass the time.
However, time spent with God is more than a hobby, it can become a change of lifestyle beneficial to our community and ourselves
