If you’re like most of the world right now, chances are you’re stuck at home a lot more than you’d prefer to be. You might feel yourself developing a case of cabin fever right now but there are definitely some steps you can take to make staying home feel less frustrating and lonely. 

If you’re starting to feel your grip on your sanity loosening, fear not! Just because we’re stuck at home does not mean we can’t learn new things. Here are five fun hobbies to get into while you stay home. 

1. Learn How to Cook 

Eating out is less of an option nowadays, but some of us are probably still guilty of spending too much on takeout meals. There is no better time to practice sharpening your cooking skills. 

There are tons and tons of recipes you can access for free online. You might be surprised what you can make with some of the essentials you already have in your kitchen. You can even perfect your baking skills and make treats to share with your friends and family. 

2. Gardening 

When you’re stuck in the house, it can be easy to get tired of your surroundings. If the weather is nice, why not go outside and exercise your green thumb a little bit? 

However, if it’s cold where you live right now, don’t despair. You can also practice your gardening skills by setting up an herb garden in your own home. Just find a good window with lots of sunlight and watch your space transform. 

3. Learn a New Instrument 

It’s never too late to teach an old dog new tricks. If you’ve always loved listening to music but have always wished you could make music of your own, now’s a great chance to try. 

There are loads of videos online that can teach you how to play all kinds of instruments, whether it’s piano or guitar or your recorder from elementary school. 

4. Knitting or Sewing 

Spending more time at home might have you feeling more crafty than usual. Why not embrace that and try taking up knitting or sewing? These are great if you’re up for a little bit of a challenge.

5. Find a New At-Home Workout 

Spending time at home all the time means that you probably can’t get to the gym as much as you used to. This doesn’t mean you can’t still be active though. 

This might be a great time to find a new at-home workout that you love. Maybe try an online yoga class or an at-home HIIT workout, or even just go for a jog around your neighborhood.
