There were no topics about things to do without a computer which can be enjoyed, so I thought I'd post some suggestions on things you can do without a computer. For those lacking inspiration on things to do, here's a nice list of examples:
  • Cook dinner
  • Bake cakes/cookies
  • Prepare snacks for a party or just for sharing
  • Listen to music
  • Learn to play an instrument
  • Play an instrument
  • Sing
  • Go shopping for new clothes
  • Go shopping for new furniture
  • Hiking (this can be done for both sport or relaxation)
  • Cycle (bicycle, same applies as hiking)
  • Go for a drive
  • Sports
    • Martial arts
    • Team sports
    • Individually competitive sports
    • Individual sports
  • Yoga
  • Volunteer (countless organizations are looking for people to help out). Some examples:
    • Salvation army
    • The local hospital
    • Buddy project (for lonely people)
    • Relevant place of worship
    • Theater
    • Prison
    • Retirement home
    • Volunteer fire department
    • Wildlife maintenance/observation
  • Gardening (can even be done on a balcony)
  • Knitting
  • Embroidery
  • Sewing
  • Origami
  • Drawing
  • Painting
  • Sculpting
  • Take pictures
  • Writing
  • Reading
  • Acting
  • Make your own clothes
  • Lego (yesyes, "children's toys". It's fun anyway)
  • Build a miniature model railway
  • Renovate your house (raise/lower the ceiling, that new bathroom you always wanted, etc.)
  • Build a house
  • Help build a clubhouse
  • Spend some time with others, this includes
    • Family
    • Neighbors
    • Friends (if you still have them)
    • Religious community (if applicable)
    • Other communities you're part of
  • You know all those universities producing scientists? Well, there are loads of amateurs out there doing the same. For example:
    • Amateur archeology
    • Amateur astronomy
    • Genealogy (that is figuring out your family tree, this may seem boring... but it'll get you traveling to some archive, possibly in another country)
    • Amateur chemistry (remember that resentment? :) )
    • Amateur rocketry (same as above, combine for additional effectiveness :D )
    • Amateur historian
  • Travel the world (there's a lot of experiences out there, just waiting for you)
  • Hunt (note: some places have regulations and requirements for this, also prepare well)
  • Getting involved in (local) politics (a great place for an addict obsessed with fixing an issue :) )
  • Survival
  • Stand-up comedian
  • Hobby cameraman
  • Amateur reporter
  • Amateur magician

There is so much to experience out there. If we listen to our addict, the only fun thing out there is the computer. This is a flat out lie. We can start doing all kinds of things and chances are there are lots of options in order to find others that do the same thing in our country/state/city/town/village/area. All we have to do is find them, seek them out and say "hi", the rest will arrange itself with a little work.
