You can never be too old to try new hobbies. In fact, new hobbies will keep you intellectually challenged, active and will prevent you from getting old. There comes a time when reorganizing your pantry and color-coding your wardrobe gets monotonous, and all you need is to try something new.

If you’re looking for ways to entertain your brain and creativity and new hobbies to pick up, you’ve come to the right place. We have listed down some new hobbies that you could try in your pastime from the comfort of your own home because, let’s face it, getting out of your sweatpants seems like too much work, doesn’t it?

1. Cooking

We’re all for instant noodles, wine, and coffee, but there is something magical about learning a new recipe and seeing the astonishment on your partner’s face when you make them try it for the first time.

Of course, if you do not know how to cook, you should start off with something super simple. Always keep a backup plan in case things go south. Open up a YouTube recipe and follow that step-by-step. You’d be surprised at how easy cooking can feel and how accomplished you feel after making a delicious meal.

2. Needlework

It’s 2021, and we’re all stuck to our screens. Whether it is attending Zoom calls, sitting next to children as they attend their online school classes, or simply scrolling through Instagram, we cannot deny being obsessed with our screens.

Hence, it is important to find some off-screen time so that you can relax your mind and body. A great way to do this is to pick up knitting or crocheting. The difference between the two is technique and the tools used. If you’re looking for some inspiration, simply open up Pinterest and look at the wool blankets posted there. If someone else can make it, what is stopping you? You’re just as amazing!

3. Instrument

Remember the time when you wanted to learn the guitar and genuinely saw yourself joining a band as a career? While you may be too old and practical to think that way, who said that you couldn’t learn a new instrument as a hobby?

Whether it is the piano that makes you feel jittery and excited from inside or the guitar that makes you feel like you have a shot at a musical career, go ahead and connect with your creative side. Don’t be afraid to fail. All you need to do is have fun. It’s your time to shine!

4. Paint

For most people, painting is extremely therapeutic. There are a number of techniques that you can adopt; whether it is painting with acrylic, oil, or water paints, the possibilities are endless.

Don’t worry; you do not have to be an artist to paint. You just have to enjoy yourself. If you need some direction, find step-by-step videos on YouTube and follow those. However, remember never to copy an artist’s work. Always give due credit where needed.


Are you ready to try something new? Are you ready to pick up new hobbies and make the most of your time? All you need to do is be brave. We believe in you!
