Life coupled with a pandemic has been constricting & exhausting. With nowhere to go, you are stuck inside your house for god knows how many days, months, or years.

However, I believe it’s an excellent opportunity to experiment with new things, find new hobbies, and probably even make money out of it. Looking through a list of hobbies is a great way to get the creative juices flowing.

You can spend your winter/lockdown knitting new sweaters, painting new masterpieces, harmonizing new melodies, journaling new poetries, wood-crafting chopsticks, planting new blooms, organizing your house, and the list goes on! 

Indoor Hobbies

Here’s our dedicated list of 40+ Fun & Creative Indoor Hobbies to recall & recollect.

Cheap Indoor Hobbies

Exploring cheap hobbies is not only budget-friendly but also helps you start a new goal without procrastination or hindrance.

These may require minimal to no expenses at all. 


It doesn’t matter whether you are a pro writer or not; journaling will untangle your jumbled thoughts nonetheless.

Life is often challenging, and sometimes, it gets unbearable. But, you can always write your heart out & witness your mood take a positive turn. 

Write in virtual notes or be creative and pen down a diary. It’s a refreshing & private gift to yourself. 

Use colors, cuttings, graffiti to express your thoughts and watch new ideas emerge! 


A simple yoga mat & gym clothes will do the magic and help you invest time in healthy life habits. Yoga unfolds your strained muscles & gradually eradicates inflexibility.

Stream in free yoga videos on youtube, light up some candles, play soothing/healing instrumental music, and enjoy an affordable one-hour yoga session every day. 

In addition, incorporating healing crystals into your yoga and meditation routine can be a great way to help keep your energy in balance and promote relaxation.

There are many ways to incorporate the healing power of crystals into your routine – for example by wearing natural crystal rings or bracelets for an entire day for continuous access; placing them around the home for a protective and peaceful atmosphere or meditating with the stone/crystal on your body during practice for more focused intention-setting.

Learning a new language

I recently started learning Korean with Rosetta Stone—a website offering multiple courses to learn different languages. 

It’s pretty easy to learn with Rosetta Stone—choose your native language, and they will elaborately teach you from A-Z. 

Indoor Hobbies For Couples

It’s a physical expression of love. So, tune in to some free youtube lessons or enroll in an actual virtual couple-dance class. It’s fun either way. 


Don’t let your partner cook alone and be equally involved.

Cooking is way more fun with your partner. Also, cooking strengthens bond and develops a greater connection between couples.
