1. Start Sewing From Scratch
Learning to sew is an underrated skill in our times of readymade garments. What you do not know is that it can be of so much use. While novice seamstresses can darn a hole, fix a button or a rip, the more advanced can even stitch entire garments to the fit and design of their liking. Sewing kits, portable tools and machines make all of it an absolute breeze.
2. Develop Your Green Thumb
Everybody loves the idea of having a green oasis in their home in the middle of the concrete jungle. Make that a reality by learning the dos and don'ts of gardening. A bit of research, the right tools, pots and saplings are all you need for fresh blooms in your balcony.
3. Learn How To Cook
Those who rely on restaurants and delivery services for their daily bread will know the importance of cooking in times like these more than ever. A cookbook for newbies can change that drastically and appliances like processors and smart cookers won't leave you worried about setting the kitchen on fire.
4. De-clutter Your Home
Now is a better time than any to organise your house. From your closets to your shelves, get rid of the clutter and add in more organisers, racks and stands to segregate your personal effects and make them easier to locate.
5. Improve Your Mind
Put away the digital devices and opt for traditional indoor games which you spent years playing when you were younger. From sharpening your cognitive skills to fostering a sense of community, indoor games are a winning choice from every angle.
