To stay positive during home quarantine, try these fun and interesting hobbies that you probably left long back

#21daylockdown: Try some fun hobbies like Bollywood celebs

The entire world has taken a pledge to overrule the pandemic COVID 19 by staying home quarantined. PM Modi on Tuesday evening announced a 21 days lockdown in India. People are advised now to strictly stay at home to prevent the outbreak of the very contagious coronavirus infection. However, the constant fear, anxiety and panic exist in our mind, but we can still look forward to the positive aspects during home quarantine. As human interaction is limited and you have to carry out your basic chores, you can increase your productivity and engage yourself in fun and interesting hobbies. Even our favourite Bollywood celebs are doing so.

Yes, this is the time when you can look back to your past years and revive the hobbies you left undone long back. Be it gardening, painting, cooking or just engaging your creative minds into various crafts, there are a lot of fun options to explore.

Fun Hobbies To Take Up While Home Quarantined

We have listed down 5 options to try:


1. Call Yourself A Rockstar?

If you used to be a heartthrob in college because of your guitar skills or if you are a music lover who has lost passion for playing musical instruments, the time has come to take out your guitar, drums, piano and other items decorating your house corner. Write new songs, play those old melodic notes or just explore yourself all over again. We are listening to you.

3. It's Not Just Gardening

Gardening is one of the common hobbies people have. But to make this social-distancing isolation a little interesting, you can do gardening in a creative way. If you have a backyard or even a balcony in your apartment, you can come up with various ways to make it all green. If you love the bohemian vibe, decorate your flower tubs with vibrant colours. Also, add some cushions and small bedding to sit and relax. Remember, when the quarantine phase ends, you will have something to cherish. 

4. What's The Menu Today?

When did you last cook something good for yourself? Has it been a while? No wonder after working hours we hardly feel positive to do something. But now, during home quarantine, you can start making mouthwatering dishes like before. You can go through a lot of recipe links available on the internet which will guide you. So can we ask now, what's cooking today?

5. Not Everyone Has That X-factor

Had immense passion in acting, theatre, VJ-ing, RJ-ing and all that? This is the time for you, my friend. Bring out your inner artistic self and capture it in a video. Make your online channels and ask people for support. Everyone is connected through internet services these days because of social distancing. So utilise the time and make the best of it. Be it a stand-up comedy, blogging, anchoring or sheer entertaining footage of your acting skills, you should revive your hobbies.


Explore your inner skills

So folks, If you are still thinking that hours are getting spent leisurely and your heart is screaming for outdoors, try these hobbies at home and see how captivating these are. Hope you also find the positive aspects of home quarantine like us. Stay safe! Stay productive!
