Hobbies To Take Up For Days Indoors

When you have a long period of time to spend at home, it’s good to have some ideas about how you are going to spend it. 

One of the ways to approach this is simply to think about which hobbies you might like to try out. 

As it happens, there are plenty that you might want to look into, and it’s true that there are always new ones to try. That’s what we’re going to discuss here right now.

Here are some of the best hobbies you might want to take up for those rainy days indoors. When you have a few of these to fall back on, it will soon mean that you are never bored again, and that’s a great position to find yourself in.


At some point when you are spending a lot of time at home, you might come to realize that you have a lot of belongings that you don’t really have a huge need for. When that happens, it usually means that it’s time to get rid of them in some way or another, and as it happens this in itself can actually become a kind of hobby too. 

One of the best ways to approach this is to get into up-cycling, but what’s that?

In essence, upcycling is making use of old items for new, upgraded purposes. If you have ever taken an old baked bean can and turned it into a flower pot, then you’ve done some upcycling. 

This is the kind of approach you may want to take if you are keen on making use of your belongings while also passing the time.


Learning to cook is both a really useful thing you can do for yourself, and genuinely really enjoyable as well. A lot of people say that they don’t really know how to cook, but it’s relatively easy to at least learn the basics, and once you have done so you’ll find that it’s then just a case of expanding out your repertoire to more and more meals and different kinds of cuisine. So that is something that you might want to consider for yourself.

You can start as simple as you like, or you might want to go into the deep end. The joy of cooking is that you always get to taste the end results, so it’s always a joy to do. This is definitely one of the very best ways to pass the time at home, all year round.

Yarn Crafts

Perhaps you want to do something with your hands, something where you end up making something useful and perhaps comfortable. If so, it could be worth considering some yarn crafts, such as knitting or crochet. Both of these are really great ways to make good use of yarn and to soon get some amazing results that you will actually have an active use for, so that is well worth thinking about.

You might be wondering what the difference between crochet and knitting is. Essentially, with knitting you are using knitting needles and yarn to create a variety of projects. With crochet, you use a single crochet hook. Both are fun but they do vary in difficulty. Of course, there is nothing stopping you from trying your hand at both.

Brewing Beer

A lot of people started brewing their own beer during lockdown, and it is actually the kind of thing that might be easier than you think. One of the main difficulties is simply finding space, and if you have a smaller home you might not actually be able to make this work all that well. 

However, as long as you’ve got the room, making your own beer is actually relatively simple and straightforward, and it’s mostly just a case of having patience with the process.

If your first couple of brews don’t pan out quite as delicious as you’d hoped, don’t lose heart - that is actually perfectly normal and common, and you’ll just need to make sure that you are trying again, perhaps with an altered recipe. Hopefully that in itself will be a fun part of the process.

Learning A Language

There is definitely a lot to be said for learning a language. It’s quite simply one of the best things you can do for the development of your brain, and it also opens you up to a whole world of possibility if you have more than one language you can speak. 

It takes time to become fluent, of course, but if you just spend half an hour a day doing it, you will soon find that you are able to learn a language quite quickly and thoroughly.

Which language to learn is up to you, but the good news is that these days you won’t even have to spend a penny to do it. Thanks to free apps like Duolingo, it’s possible to become fluent in any language for free from your own home. Why not start learning a language today?


Meditation is a lot of different things to a lot of different people. But as well as all the profound effects it can have, it is also something you might just attend to as a hobby. Taking up meditation could be one of the best things you ever do for yourself, and it can also be really fun and enjoyable if you approach it in a light-hearted and curious manner. 

Having that kind of approach to it is really important, and you’ll find the results are better too.

Just half an hour a day can make a difference, and it’s the kind of practice that you are certainly always going to want to think about if you are keen to be happier and to enjoy your daily life more.

So those are just some of the hobbies that you might want to take up for those days indoors. If you have a few of these to choose from, all the better. 

Soon enough, you’ll find that you are never bored at all.
