18 Hobbies For Introverts (Or When You Need Alone Time)

For some of us, full-blown parties, nights out or large gatherings are total nightmare material. Yep, being around hoards of other people isn’t everyone’s idea of a good time. So, instead of sending yourself into a frenzy of social anxiety, we’ve found some top-notch hobbies to take up if you’re an introvert. You’re welcome.

  1. Master the art of the espresso martini. Then invite your nearest and dearest around to test it. No trip to a rowdy bar required.
  2. Get snap happy. Whether it’s on your iPhone or a fancy DSLR, photography is a great skill for an introvert to have.
  3. Work on your bod. While group fitness classes might be a bit daunting, there are plenty of ways to keep fit solo. Helloooo hula hooping.
  4. Bake up a storm. Brownies, cookies, raw, gluten-free, vegan slice—take your pick. Delicious AND therapeutic.
  5. Trial all the bath bombs in all the land. A bath and a good book is an introvert’s idea of bliss.
  6. Make cauliflower pizza. Eat said pizza. You would never have time if you were out partying. 
  7. Clue up. Use your downtime to open your mind to the weird, wonderful and wacky things this world had to offer.
  8. Put pen to paper. You could be the next JK Rowling.
  9. Channel your inner muso. Learn the guitar, the sax or put those pipes to good use.
  10. Become one with Mother Nature.  Start a veggie garden, take up hiking or practice outdoor yoga.
  11. Volunteer with animals. Let’s be honest, they’re better than humans half the time anyway.
  12. Read, read and read some more. Nothing better than getting lost in a book.
  13. Learn a new language. Voulez-vous, ah ha.
  14. Wine and dine with your bestie/s. Food, booze and a select few people is an unbeatable combo.
  15. Tune out to podcasts. They’re the actual best.
  16. Binge watch Netflix. You knew this one was coming…
  17. See how many incoming phone calls you can avoid.
  18. Get crafty. Distress an old piece of furniture, take a pottery class or finally use that colouring book you got for Christmas.
