Fun Things To Do When You’re A Total Homebody

I’ve always been a total homebody, even in high school. All of my friends would be making plans to hang out and go places, and I’d be trying to decide which book to stick my nose in for the entire weekend. As I’ve gotten older, nothing has really changed. I’ve never been much of a partier, instead opting for chill nights at home with something fun to watch and whatever project I’m currently working on. I used to feel really self-conscious about being a homebody. Over the past couple years though, I’ve become more comfortable with this part of my personality, and really enjoy my quiet time alone. In fact, I have some many fun things to do when I’m rocking the hermit life.

  • Curl up with a scary book or mystery novel
  • Binge-watch videos on Youtube or Netflix
  • Give yourself a matching mani-pedi
  • Have a full at-home spa day (bubble bath, face mask, DIY hair mask, etc.)
  • Take your dog for a walk or have a playdate in your backyard
  • Have a movie marathon, complete with fresh popcorn and your favorite candy
  • Reorganize your makeup stash or skincare shelf, pulling forgotten favorites to the front
  • Work on a creative project, like knitting a scarf or painting with watercolors
  • Cook a delicious meal for you or your family
  • Rearrange or redecorate a room in your home that could use some love
  • Get out in your yard and do some gardening
  • Meditate, practice yoga, or do a few mindfulness exercises
  • Start some form of a journal, whether it’s an art journal or Bible journaling
  • Read a book that you haven’t picked up in ages (or one that you’ve been meaning to finish but never got around to)
  • Try recreating a yummy recipe that you’ve seen on Pinterest or your favorite cooking show
  • Teach yourself a new skill, like learning a foreign language or how to fix something
  • Take a well-deserved nap
  • Set up your bedroom so it is a cozy retreat where you can rest and relax
  • Get out an old video game that you haven’t played in forever and spend a few hours just having fun
  • Work on taking and editing photos for your blog
  • Watch an interesting documentary on Netflix
  • Clean out and organize your closet
  • Enjoy a nice, warm cup of tea or coffee
