1. Being small allows you to be good at hide-and-seek
Hobbits have an average height of 3’6”. Imagine being small enough to hide in the most remote places. You would easily be the hide-and-seek champion of the year.
2. You won’t have to buy shoes
Hobbits have no need to wear shoes. The amount of money you could save if you didn’t have to constantly buy shoes would allow you to spend money on other things you enjoy.
3. You will be able to have a small, adorable home
Hobbits often live in hillsides, and in the case of the Shire, they decorate their homes to give them a quaint and cottage-like feeling. Not only would your home likely be cool in the summer, but it would also be the envy of all of your friends who have normal homes.
4. You get to eat multiple meals a day
Hobbits eat seven meals a day, which never leaves time to be hungry. Starting from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., almost every other hour is devoted to eating a well-deserved meal. Hobbits are all about comfort.
5. You will be able to live sustainably
Despite hobbits being focused on comfort, they know how to farm and grow their own food. By doing so, they keep a social community and know where their food is coming from. If we were to do this more often, we could improve the status of our own Earth.
6. You get to relax and have celebrations almost constantly
Hobbits celebrate Highday on the seventh and last day of every week, with evening feasts. Not only is there something to look forward to every week, but birthdays are always in high demand as well. When you know everyone around you, you are always invited. There’s always a reason to celebrate.
7. You experience the joy of giving gifts
Gift-giving is an important aspect of being a hobbit. Gifts are often given as a form of payment. On birthdays, the birthday celebrant is the one who gives gifts to everyone else. Because of this, hobbits are always happy to give and to receive.
