What Are Some of the World's Most Popular Hobbies?

Some of the world's most popular hobbies include fishing, collecting, bowling and biking. Other popular hobbies include watching TV, reading, playing video games and many types of arts and crafts.

A hobby is an activity done in one's free time that brings relaxation and pleasure. Due to today's hectic schedules, many people don't have time to indulge in multiple hobbies but most people enjoy one or more activities that may be considered hobbies.

Other hobbies include playing sports, online dating, animal training, listening to music or volunteer work. Hobbies can be done alone or with friends, family or even strangers. Because the average person works between 40 and 50 hours per week, only between 20 and 30 hours of each week can be devoted to a hobby.
