What is HIPS™?
HIPS stands for Hobbies, Interests, Pastimes and Sports.
The Oxford dictionary defines these as:
'Hobby' - a favourite subject or occupation that is not one’s main business
'Interest' - something that excites curiosity or attention
'Pastime' - a recreation, game or sport
'Sport' - an activity for exercise, pleasure or competition.
Their common denominator for you is enjoyment!
