Though highly “fashionable” nowadays in the West, it is an efficient hobby that will keep you in a better state of health.

9. Gardening

The Japanese have practiced gardening and landscaping for a long time as a hobby. According to experts, it relieves stress as it makes you concentrate on the most trivial of details, thus making you impervious to invasive thoughts; besides, the end-result is beautiful and aesthetically pleasing.

10. Things that are mentally challenging

Jigsaws, Sudoku puzzles and crosswords can help you keep your mind busy. Just like the body, the mind is a machine and unless used to its fullest, it keeps losing its edge. The health of the mind is of the essence for an empath and these hobbies will help them keep it in good shape.
