    I feel guilty if I spend the whole day watching tv. If it was spent painting/drawing/reading/crafting then I think that was being productive.

    I surf the web and play online games, and I bake – but I can only bake so much!

    I don’t really feel guilty.. everything I need to get done gets done, I’m not neglecting anyone, and I love my “me” time.

    I used to do alot of paranormal investigations and I miss it SO much, my fi isn’t really into it [he feels its something people shouldn’t mess with].

    Absolutely not. I never feel guilty doing hobbies that force me to get creative or use my mind. I don’t think anyone should! If I spent hours doing a hobby like playing video games then yeah I probably wouldn’t feel great about that.

    No, because I have a job and provide income for our home, so I reserve the right to do what I want to in my free time.

    I totally get what you mean. I’m self employed so I literally could *always* be working if I wanted to. I try to make it so that my hobbies are profitable (writing ebooks, selling things online, etc) but I feel like that isn’t the right way to go about it but I can’t relax! I really wish I could. I think part of this comes from my parents. I’m with you OP.

    @Pixienickie:  exactly! 

    I also feel guilty if I spend the whole day on the internet or watching TV. My real hobbies don’t make me feel guilty, unless I am procrastinating doing something important.
