Yeah, we know. Lockdown has been extended again. 🥲 Some of you are probably bored of your daily routines by now and are eager to do something new. And so are we! After scouring the Internet and asking people about their favourite hobbies, we've narrowed them down to a few activities that'll teach you a new skill or two: 


Learn to play a musical instrument

See that acoustic guitar collecting dust at the corner of your room? Or your piano that is now a makeshift dressing table? NOW is the perfect time for you to pick them up again! Music also helps to reduce your depression and anxiety while lifting your spirits, so this is a good hobby for everyone to get into! 🎸


Origami

Creating origami is a great way to fill up your time while improving your motor skills and spatial visualisation. Besides that, you can also spruce up your room with your beautiful creations! 📃 They'll help to boost your mental health and make you feel better!


Baking/cooking

The pandemic has probably birthed more new chefs/bakers than any other event in our lives. And that's a good thing! We are usually too busy to learn how to cook, and if there's a silver lining to the pandemic, we now have the time to learn an important life skill! 🧑‍🍳


Vlogging

With the rise of YouTube, Twitch, TikTok, Instagram, and other platforms, being comfortable on camera and being able to edit videos are important skills to have. And vlogging is one way for you to learn both skills simultaneously! Besides, vlogging what you did during the pandemic could make for interesting memories for you to revisit in the far future, too. 🤳


Yoga

The gyms might be closed now but there are still other exercising alternatives you could pick up to do at home! Yoga is one such alternative, and it's a very good choice, too. It helps you to improve your strength, balance, and flexibility while helping you to manage your stress. If that's not a good hobby to pick, we don't know what is! 🧘
