You have to write a lot all throughout school and college, and when you graduate, it’s the last thing you think about. Unless your job involves writing tasks, you probably never think of it as a hobby.

Having a journal can be good for the soul, though. If you find it difficult to vent to people, or if it’s hard for you to work through things out loud, writing your thoughts down can help you make sense of it.

Beyond that, no matter you write poetry, a short story, or even a novel can be an amazing creative journey to embrace. All it takes is a pen and paper, or more modern way of software like Microsoft Word or Google Docs.

Do you have a specific message you want to share with the world? Blogging can be a great method to get it out there, and many free blogging services are available on the internet.

Cooking and Baking

Spending time in the kitchen can make some people bored, but others thrive when they’re experimenting with different ingredients to make the delicious dish.

The best part about cooking or baking is that so many recipes are available online at your fingertip, you don’t need a cookbook at all. You can choose to cook recipes or adapt ones to make them your very own. The price is whatever you invest in the ingredients. If gardening is a hobby you enjoy, it’s even better for you to source your own ingredients.

Playing Games

Some board games might seem expensive at first, but the cost of games isn’t that high when you think about the use you get out of them.

For example, if you buy a board game for $50 and play it with your friends ten times, that’s $5 of entertainment for one night—and the cost keeps reducing the more you play it. Most board games are timeless, so it’s just a matter of finding one that everyone love.

Alternatively, many classic board games have digital versions available online or for very little money that allows ​you to play with friends or family in different occasions and places. This can be a great way to stay in touch with your loved ones who live in other cities or countries.
