However, this time is often the only time when you can enjoy your own interests, without children in the way, so here are a few online hobbies that will let you get the most out of this time while still taking it easy.

Shopping online

This is incredibly easy to do these days, as there is hardly a single major store that doesn’t have a website with shopping options. Generally all you have to do is register and put in your bank details when it comes to paying. Of course, browsing can take a bit of time, but is part of the fun for most people, and if money is tight just don’t click ‘buy’ at the end!

Fun rating: 5/5

Blogging and app development

Setting up a blog is dead easy if you use the templates provided by sites like WordPress, making the real challenge coming up with something to write about. Choosing a subject you are passionate about will make it easier – and more enjoyable. You can spend as much time as you want per week, but try for at least a couple of new posts each week. It’s a low cost activity if you start simple and can even earn you money! Look for app developers in London for more ideas and inspiration

This is another easily accessed way hobby for the evenings, with numerous colleges and courses to choose from. Depending on how demanding the course you choose is, it could be quite time consuming, but most such courses offer flexibility. Again, you can find hundreds of free or low cost online courses available now, as well as those that need a serious investment in both time and fees.

Watching television

You don’t have to be stuck with the standard television channels any more, with lots of streaming services available online. Some are free to sign up for, others require a fee, but the process is simple. Keeping up with all those HBO drama serials is a pretty big commitment though.
