#365daysofhobby Update 1

How do you get the army you've always wanted on the table?

I'm sure I'm not the only person who looked back on last year and realised I'd done very little hobby.

The pandemic, working from home, lockdown and very little to no gaming had completely sapped my motivation and eaten up all of my time. I made the decision at the start of the year to change that.


I committed to twenty minutes of hobby a day. 

It's a small enough amount of time that I could fit it into pretty much any day and the results have been amazing for me.

It's not quite the end of January and I've already done more hobby than the whole of 2020. And I can see that in a few weeks I'll have a fully painted 1000 point force for the Kharadron Overlords. All built and painted since January.

That's massive for me.

And it's really helped with my hobby mojo. I can see that in a month or so I'll have a full 2000 point force painted and ready for the table. I'm already looking and thinking about what I want to do next.

Now full disclosure. I haven't just spent 20 minutes a day on hobby so far this year. The process of sitting down to do 20 minutes on a lot of days leads me to spend much more time doing something I love. 

And I haven't managed every day. A migraine on Saturday meant I didn't get anything done that day. But you know what that doesn't matter. Because there are always going to be the odd day when life gets in the way.

I've also been amazed, or rather reminded, just how much sitting down and doing some hobby regularly is beneficial for my mental health. It's definitely helped me get through the dark January days and lockdown.

If you want to see more of what I've achieved I'm posting daily updates on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram using #365daysofhobby

If you're stuck in your own hobby rut then I really recommend committing to 20 minutes a day for a period of time. It doesn't have to be a year or even a month, try it for a week. I think you'll be amazed at what happens.

And please let me know how you get in.

Stay Safe
