Some people believe that hobbies need to be difficult to be enjoyable.
To what extent do you agree or disagree?

only challenging hobbies enjoyable?

It is commonly believed that hobbies are only enjoyable when they are challenging. Personally, I believe that both easy and difficult hobbies can be fun and therefore, I disagree with the statement.

On the one hand, it is true that difficult hobbies are sometimes more interesting. If an activity is challenging, people usually feel a great sense of satisfaction when they complete or achieve it. For example, when I started editing photos and videos, which is difficult, as a hobby, there were a lot for me to learn. After one year of self-studying, I became competent and now I enjoy it much more than when I started. In addition, since challenging activities are more difficult to master, it can keep people interested, stop them from dropping off and avoid boredom.

On the other hand, I believe that easy hobbies can be as enjoyable as difficult ones. Since one's hobbies depend on his own interest, many people can find an easy and simple activity, which does not require special skills, fun and regard it as their hobby. A good example for this is knitting. This hobby requires little materials and easy for everyone to learn but still enjoyable. Moreover, easy hobbies are usually less expensive than challenging ones; therefore, they often attract more people. This means that when people take up an easy hobby, they are likely to meet more friends who have similar interest, which can be enjoyable and pleasant.

In conclusion, I believe that both types of hobbies are interesting but in different ways.

Hello there.

Try to maximize the space in your essay by omitting unnecessary lines and words. If you can evade the usage of synonymous content, opt to do so as this will permit you to have substantive meaning in your writing. Keep yourself focused on the general and prioritized portions as opposed to not having a filter around.

Furthermore, work on the structure of your sentences. If a lengthy sentence can be separated into two lines, opt to do this as it will help you make concrete your thoughts and opinions.

Overall, the explanations you had were decent and put-together. Just work on the technical aspect of your writing.

Best of luck as always.
