We’re now into our second week of the Covid-19 lockdown in Malaysia. What have you been up to since it began? Binge-watching movies, TV series, K-dramas? Those are all good ways to pass the time but after a while, it will get boring. So, get rid of your boredom and gain a new skill (if you don’t already have them) by taking up these interesting hobbies that can easily be done from the comfort of your home.

1. Cooking

It really shouldn’t come as a surprise that cooking is the first indoor hobby we’d like to recommend. By learning how to cook, you’re opening yourself to an infinite amount of possibilities in terms of meal choices. If you don’t have this important skill, you’re likely to get stuck preparing and eating the same ol’ same ol’ food. How boring and unappetizing is that? And since you’ve plenty of free time to do so now, why not learn to cook as it won’t just benefit your stomach but also your wallet. Oh, and be sure to wear an apron since cooking can get messy especially if you’re not well-versed in it. Better yet, wear a custom-printed apron that’s tailor-designed for you by you; because, if you have the option to cook in style then why not?

2. Reading

This hobby might sound boring to some but the benefits of it are more than worth it. When you read facts-based books, articles, etc., you absorb knowledge that can then be applied to everyday life. On the other hand, when you read fictive writing it helps to expand the creative side of your mind as through their words you’ll be able to picture what the author is describing. Besides that, you can also enhance your vocabulary. Therefore, give it a try as you’ve got nothing to lose. Who knows, you might just end up loving it.

3. Exercising

Now, you must be thinking that this can’t possibly be a hobby (unless it is a hobby of yours). Well, we hate to be the bringer of bad news but it is. So, get off your chair, floor, bed, or any other surface you may be lounging on and get exercising! Just because your movements outside are restricted doesn’t mean you’ve been given the pass to lead an unhealthy life. Thus, stay healthy and fit during this lockdown period by adding some exercise routines to your daily plans.
