Juggling – The best hobby to pick up while traveling
Juggling is a lot of fun. When we Travel, we have a lot of time to learn & teach ourselves new hobbies. I truly recommend juggling as a travel hobby, even if you are not a clown.
Why juggling is an amazing travel hobby?
There are so many reasons for juggling being an amazing travel hobby. It is light, portable and fits into every backpack easily, it’s great for outdoor & indoor, its free (only need to buy the balls), It’s not electronic and many other reasons…
Why is Juggling so good for you?
Juggling has so many benefits for you. Everyone speaks these days about the importance of meditation. Juggling is an amazing way to meditate, and incredibly easy too. With all the daily noise and interruptions around us it’s really hard for us to build our focus. Most of us can’t hold our concentration even for a few minutes.
Here comes Juggling, practice it only several times a week for a few minutes and you will start to feel a relief in all aspects of your life. You will feel more concentrated which will then affect your motivation. It will help you move bad thoughts away while you practice, which will then reduce stress, anger anxiety & depression. Just an easy way to help ourselves with the stressful daily life.
The connection that we build between our hands and our mind while practicing is amazing, really good for our brain, especially these days where all of us are concentrated on the phone for such a long time and forget how important is it to practice our coordination.
I think also in general that juggling is just amazingly creative and you can have pure fun doing it, simple as that.
Learn how to juggle
Juggling is one of the easiest things to learn, start with 2 balls and then move to 3. I personally saw someone doing it and learned from him. You can learn your first steps from youtube and from there your creativity will do its magic. Once you start you will feel how fast you are improving, and I tell you, it is addicting.
It is always a good time to start juggling and it is never to late. If you are planning to travel or going for a weekend with friends or something like that, just take it with you. For sure there is someone around that knows the basics, and if not, I am sure you will manage it by yourself.
