15 Hobbies For Introverts

To begin with you might want to choose one hobby then add in another one or two. Here are 15 hobbies for introverts that you might enjoy:


#1 Puzzles

Doing puzzles solo or with someone is a great activity that challenges your strategic thinking and problem-solving skills. You may want to choose an easier one then work you way up to 1000 piece puzzles.

Taking photos can be a great way to explore and capture neat items and scenery. Above all, your photos just might inspire you for something big.

#3 Reading

Fiction is a great way to escape to another time and place. Whereas in non fiction you will find loads of great self help, entrepreneur, and how to books. Here are a few of my favs:

#4 Gardening 

Tending to a garden can be a meditative and therapeutic way to spend time outdoors or indoors. You'll be reminded of how nature takes it's time as well as the joy of growing plants and the surprises that they are. If you're not able to tend to your plants all summer I'm sure you could give your little seedling to a friend or neighbor.

#10 Book Making

How fun would it be to make and hand bind your own books.


#11 Sketching

Ah, the joy of sketching from real life or your imagination!


#12 Painting

I should add more medias like chalk, inks, dyes, etc. Artistic pursuits like painting can be a great way to channel your colorful creativity. I made these mixed media bookmarks in Tara Mercer's online SkillShare class.

#13 Digital Art

A favorite of mine is drawing in Procreate. Let me know if you give this a try.


#14 Blogging

The modern way to write about anything you'd like to share. My blog is a mix of business and marketing tips for creative entrepreneurs and quilting.


#15 Online Course

Do you love to take online courses as much as I do!?! It's so fun to take courses in the comfort of your own home and connect with others that share your interests.


Remember, these are just a few suggestions. I hope you find a hobby here that you find enjoyable. To sum it up, the most important thing is to find one that allows you to recharge and feel energized, rather than drained, after spending time on it.
