5 Hobbies to Take Up At Home

April 1, 2020

Life in a New Tradition Homes community is all about happier, healthier living, and now there’s no better time to bring those positive vibes into your beautiful home! While you’re spending more time indoors, certain hobbies that keep you active and engaged will boost your mood and have you feeling refreshed all day long.

With plenty of room to spread out, including a large, open-concept living area and a den, you can choose the most comfortable spot in your home. Take a look at a few of our favorite hobbies to take up inside.


Fun Hobbies to Do at Home


Yoga Class: Whether you’re familiar with a few moves or you’re just starting out, your spacious New Tradition home is the perfect place to get zen. Looking for some easy moves to begin with? These enjoyable video classes will help you get on the path to mindfulness. All you need is a comfortable, relaxing spot… check. 

At-Home Gym: With all the wide open space in your beautiful home, you certainly don’t need a gym to get some exercise. This website offers free workout video classes — and if you’re looking for a specific workout, you can narrow down your search by duration, training type, equipment, etc. Lace up your sneakers and enjoy!

Get Cookin’: If you already have items like pasta, cereal, beans, peas, olive oil, rice, bread, and canned tomatoes stocked in your gourmet kitchen, there are dozens of dishes you can easily whip up without having to leave home for any ingredients. Call these your “pantry masterpieces” — they’re so much fun to make!

Work(out) From Home: Are you working from home? Turn all that sitting into standing! Place your computer on an elevated surface that you can access from where you stand, and try some “standing exercises,” including hamstring curls and desk pushups, or simply move your body however you like.

Find Your Passion: One of the best things about spending more time in your New Tradition home? You have all the room you need to try something new. Start a virtual book club, try fiction writing, pick up painting, learn piano or guitar, make craft cocktails, create scrapbooks, start blogging, discover new music or a new language, have a movie marathon, etc. You have the world at your feet… right in your New Tradition home.

There’s no better time to dive into a new hobby while enjoying the comfort of your spacious home! For more information about our homes and neighborhoods throughout Washington, please call 360-448-4710.


I don't remember the first time I saw a New Tradition home, but it was MANY years ago. During the internet evolution, I have watched New Tradition evolve into a great company. I don't know why, I guess it was my dream to own one I just didn't know it yet. Years later, my husband and I decided it was time to build. After looking at all the builders and communities we stopped into a New Tradition home and he fell in love! (I was already there). 4 months later the floor plan of our dreams came available and we were hooked. 1 year later, we are now in our New Tradition home and I couldn't be happier!
