Pandemic Hobbies Worth Trying!

Pandemic Hobbies

Our current situation may require us to stay indoors, but it can’t keep us from living well. Yes. There’s more to life than watching what’s going on around you in frustration or fear. You can do your part while doing your best to enjoy the present. We’ve listed some pleasurable, worthwhile pandemic hobbies for you!

Indoor Food Experience

You don’t have to leave your house to get a taste of dishes you haven’t tried before. Food deliveries and free recipes online are all you need. You can do it on your own or with your loved ones (even with friends via zoom!).

All The DIYs You Like

Whether you’re into it or not, a DIY (do-it-yourself) task is very satisfying. Regardless of what project you work on. A small one can de-stress you and make you feel productive just as much as a big one. Look for a DIY that’s right for you!    

Following Your Inspos

Do you want to see those trendy curtains in your room? Have you always wanted to paint your bedroom wall blue? Nothing can stop you now! You can make use of the time you usually spend outdoors to do exciting stuff in the comfort of your own home.

Private Fashion Show

You’re free to do whatever you want at home. You can be a fashion model if you wish! Your clothes are probably missing you. Throw on some-or each piece-in front of the mirror (you can take pictures too). Mix and match. Try styles you’ve never tried before!    

A Spa Of Your Own

Who says you need to go out to have a spa day? Just prepare a bath, a scented candle, and play some relaxing music. If you don’t have a tub, you can use a basin to soak your hands or feet. Spas soothe both your mind and body.      

Listening to Podcasts

Many audio platforms now include podcasts (series of spoken word episodes that focus on various topics or themes). Ranging from self-help to entertainment, you have a lot to choose from. Podcasts provide easy listening and, unlike videos, allow you to do other things at the same time.   

Artist For A Day

No matter what your skills are, you can take advantage of your free schedule to be creative. Try painting, singing, writing, photography, film-making, etc.! You don’t really have to be good at it. Just let passion and imagination guide you.     

Dance Party

No need to worry about busting your moves in front of strangers. Dancing on your own or with your family is fun and healthy! You get to enjoy, energize yourself, and work out all at the same time. You can dance to any music you want to–maybe even put up some lights! 

Going Through Memories

Reminisce. Think about everything you’ve experienced so far. Whether good or bad, special or not, every event made you who you are today. Looking back can help encourage you or simply put a smile on your face.      

Although the world is not in a good state right now, you can still choose hope over despair. Don’t let reality get the best of you. Yes, we need to stay aware and do what we must, but we don’t need to wallow in misery. That won’t take us anywhere. You can keep going for yourself and everyone else. Remember, we’ve already been through a lot before as simple humans. Life is too short not to live in the moment. Go ahead and try something new!
