Get Hooked On 6 Fun Hobbies You Can Do at Home

by Staff

When everyone is working from home, it can be difficult and a little crazy at times. The apartment where you used to sleep and eat is now your home/office environment it’s like your entire world, which can get overwhelming.

You might not have a way to use those free hours after work since you have nothing to do or anywhere to go! While binge-watching endless hours of YouTube or Netflix can be a lot of fun, there are so many more things that you could do to unwind on the weekends!

There are always new hobbies to try out, and in this blog post, we’re going to give you some ideas about what fun things you could get into when it comes down to spending your weekend.

Let’s go.

Wreck This Journal

If you are from the Tumblr days, you know what a wreck the journal is! For those of you who are new to it, it’s an interactive scrapbook or coloring book.

It’s a healing notebook that features beautiful print-outs for every entry, and once you’re done with it, you’ll have one pretty outstanding healing masterpiece.


Calligraphy is an art form that has fascinated people for centuries. The strokes of a paintbrush to create the various letters of the alphabet can be considered poetry in motion.

If you think calligraphy could be something you’d like to learn, check out some practice books and brush pens on Amazon and start practicing!

Learn To Cook

You might feel intimidated about learning to cook your meals. But it’s important to do so for your health. Start cooking easy recipes initially, like heating a tortilla, making a bean salad, or making pasta and sandwiches.

You can start learning how to cook by looking at YouTube videos or searching online. Also, learn some basic cooking skills like chopping and slicing, so you don’t cut yourself while making a steaming bowl of food!

PS: You should always have a “UH OH!” plan – like handy gnomes nearby if something catches on fire!

Pick Up Quilting

Quilting is a fun hobby that you can learn. Sometimes, it’s difficult because you have to master your skills before starting the actual project itself.

But once you have done all the hard work, you can start quilting and remember whatever you quilt could last a lifetime! Now you can create gifts for your loved ones, but this time it’s from your own hands.

Also, you don’t need to go to a physical shop to get supplies; instead, you can google the best online quilting fabric store – get supplies right in front of your doorsteps!

Learn An Instrument

Learning to play an instrument can be very therapeutic and rewarding – regardless of how old you are!

Suppose you’ve been interested in learning the violin for years but never found the time to commit to practice – now’s your chance!

It’s never too late to learn, so expand your mind while also improving your skillset by committing yourself wholeheartedly to picking up a violin, guitar, or other instruments.

The good news is that there are plenty of online tutorials available via platforms like YouTube.

Become Plant Parents 

Yes, you may have heard terms like dog parents or pet parents, but as plant lovers ourselves, we know that a plant can be just as much of a part of your family as other members! Plants given sufficient attention and care can grow healthy and look beautiful.

If you ever took care of a plant that didn’t turn out as expected, chances are you just chose the wrong kind of plant or might not have been attentive enough to it.

But if you know what type of plant you would like to take care of, how much attention and maintenance it requires, this gives you enough information about its optimum environment. You can learn everything about plants right from your home from Google itself!


The key to hobbies is not to make them feel like work. It needs to be enjoyable. So if you are doing something that you love and are putting in the time, the results will show.

We hope this has helped you find some new hobbies that you can enjoy!
