Wellbeing Hobbies

The American Psychological Association defines well-being as the:

state of happiness and contentment, with low levels of distress, overall good physical and mental health and outlook, or good quality of life.

APA Dictionary of Psychology

Hobbies can promote all of the above, and so can increase our well-being.

No wonder the example given in the Cambridge Dictionary for well-being is a hobby:

People doing yoga benefit from an increased feeling of well-being.
