Top 5 Winter Hobbies

By: Inter Valley Health Plan





The cold winter weather is not always conducive for certain hobbies, especially if they take place outdoors. However, just because its winter shouldn’t mean that we don’t continue to fill our time with fun, meaningful hobbies during these months. Especially with the New Year in full swing, it’s important to adopt new hobbies that are both physically beneficial and that also expand our mind. 

To help give you some inspiration and start the New Year off right, we have detailed some of our top hobbies that are ideal for these cold winter months.

1.     Museums. Visiting a museum is the perfect blend of mental and physical stimulation. Museums are filled with fascinating facts and education for all to enjoy, but typically they require a lot of walking too. Kill two birds with one stone. You can also go alone or to connect with friends, consider organizing a group outing.

2.     Cooking or baking. Cooking and baking together is a wonderful way to share time. Try out a new, healthy recipe that aligns with your 2018 health goals. Then invite some friends or family over to enjoy it with you.

3.     Gardening. I know what you’re thinking: this is the quintessential outdoor activity. Well, not always! Consider broccoli, cabbage, kale, lettuce, beets and radishes. There are also many plants and flowers that you can plant and care for indoors. Not to mention, this is a perfect time to germinate your seedlings for planting your spring gardens.

4.     Card and board games. This is another fun activity to play with friends and family. The amount of card and board games to choose from seems infinite, and it’s a great way to stimulate the mind and reinforce important math and logic skills.

5.     Local resources. There are plenty of indoor activities offered through local resources like YMCA, recreational community centers and non-profits. You can find fun activities including ballroom dancing, yoga, arts and crafts and cooking classes just to name a few.  And it’s a great way to meet new friends with similar interests, too.

Don’t let the winter season keep you home. It’s a great time to explore new activities around your neighborhood and connect with friends and family.
