COVID-19’s Silver Lining

COVID-19 has brought us to stay together at home as we wait for the government’s advice on the next step. Since we’re stuck at home, aside from spending quality time with our family, it’s also the perfect time to be productive and learn something new. It may be the best time for you to start a new hobby!

Hobbies are a great way to learn something interesting while letting your mind wander. Hobbies take more attention when you first begin, so start yours today to have a hobby that outlasts quarantine.


If you love surrounding your home with plants but don’t like the cost, then propagating is for you. Propagating is the process of growing new plants from the seeds or cuttings of other plant parts. Propagating plants is actually pretty easy as they require little attention. Unlike most house plants, propagated plants can survive in dark rooms like bathrooms and laundry rooms. Not only is this hobby fun, but you can also spice up your home! 


Journaling is another low-cost hobby with a mass of benefits. It allows you to clear your mind and relax while improving your writing. Spend a few minutes each day journaling your thoughts, and watch how your life will be transformed!

Self Care

Self-care is a hobby that everyone should partake in. Find something that you love doing and boosts your self-esteem and enjoy! This can range from bubble baths to doing your nightly skincare routine. Even though you’re stuck at home, doing makeup is the perfect time to destress and express your creativity. 

Physical Activities

You don’t have to go to the gym to workout! There are hundreds of at-home workout videos on YouTube that will get your heart rate up. Due to being stuck inside, people are not walking around as much as they usually would. You can make up for the lack of movement by doing a few exercises a day. Plus, exercising enhances your mood while burning some calories! 


Photography encourages you to capture every moment. You may think there’s nothing to photograph at your home, but everything is an art! Set up a cute scene at home for a fun-filled day taking pictures. Or on your next walk, take a few photos of nature. Photography is easy to do and embraces your artistic side.

We don’t want to stay at home for nothing. Pick up a new hobby now and make the most out of this pandemic!
