To be really happy and really safe, one ought to have at least two or three hobbies, and they must all be real. —Winston Churchill

In today’s world, the phrase “I’m too busy” has almost become a badge of honor. But, if you stop to think about it, how much time do you waste on frivolous media like Netflix or Instagram?
