It may seem to someone that such hobbies only take time, effort and energy, interfering with the main business. However, this is not the case at all. Even the strongest personalities need periodic unloading and recuperation.

The opportunity to relax a little and work out some nonsense that is not related to work in any way allows the brain to relieve tension, relax and digest previously received information in the background. So even the most seemingly frivolous hobbies actually have quite a serious purpose.
