Are you an athlete or an aspiring musician? Or are you like the most of us – where a typical day comprises of a 9 to 5 desk job, leaving you with little to no energy left to do anything at the end of your day? If this sounds a little too familiar, then this article might be worth a read.

Hobbies and pastimes define us and bring value to our lives. Some of us might like reading, while others may prefer going on hikes and adventurous endeavours. Whatever it may be, the implementation of the MCO 2.0 is a good opportunity for you to pick up some valuable hobbies, if you don’t already have one.

Stick around and you might just find yourself intrigued by some of these ideas!

Learning the Guitar

Before all you piano fans start bashing us, there’s a good reason as to why learning the guitar is a smarter option when it comes to picking up a musical instrument. Well, firstly, a guitar is far smaller and thus easier to store as compared to a piano, and it costs significantly lesser to own a guitar than a full-sized piano.

Inside all of us, there’s an inner musician waiting to bud, but only a handful of us are lucky enough to hold on to that inspiration and actually pick up a musical instrument. Hobbies always start off as leisure, but you’d never know when you might just start getting serious about it and kickstart your own musical career down the years!

Pick Up Reading

In this digital age, reading books seem to have become obsolete and redundant, especially since eBooks are free and readily available. However, a reader would agree that there’s just something special about holding a physical book – and the addictive pleasure of flipping through one and smelling the enchanting woody scent of paper.

Reading has also been proven to be one of the best, if not the best way to gain knowledge and upvalue ourselves, sworn by numerous successful figures around the world. Furthermore, reading is an escape from the harsh realities of our society – and that’s the wonderful thing about reading, it brings you to places without you moving, and isn’t that perfect in this crisis that we’re in?

Taking Up Photography

Being able to take good pictures is one of those skills in life whereby it’s one you can live without, but at the same time, would be absolutely amazing to have. There are many reasons as to why professional photographers are paid handsomely for their services, but it all boils down to how appealing they can make you look inside those frames.

Wouldn’t it be great to pick up a skill or two and become the top photographer in your social circles? You might even be able to start a small business off of that! Well, you’d first need a camera, some knowledge and a whole lot of discipline.

Learning How to Cook

Whichever part of the world you’re in, food is a universal language, a common ground for all. Good food has the amusing ability to bring together people, regardless of differences. However, not all of us are lucky enough to have been brought up in a cooking family.

Youngsters nowadays have lost touch with the world of culinary arts, oftentimes settling for fast and cheap alternatives in dining. MCO 2.0 seems to be a wonderful opportunity for us to learn the art of cooking. Even if it doesn’t turn out tasting all that well, remember – we all have to start somewhere!

Getting Green Fingers

Some of us were born with a natural calling for gardening, while some of us could never manage to keep a plant alive for more than a week. It shouldn’t be surprising to find out that gardening actually takes a fair bit of skills and knowledge, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try!

Treat gardening as a therapeutic process that can also help bring in positive energy into your life. Furthermore, gardening can bring you tangible benefits as well, if you’re into vegetable plants. You might even start exploring the idea of running a backyard farm – very entrepreneurial!

Explore Calisthenics

The implementation of MCO 2.0 sees the closure of gyms and workout areas, but callisthenics is here to deter you from coming up with excuses! Callisthenics is essentially a workout regime that employs the use of bodyweight exercises – which means you don’t have to invest in gym equipment such as dumbbells and weights.

What this means is, if you try hard enough, you might be able to achieve your dream body by the end of this pandemic, purely with just your bodyweight. I know this sounds too good to be true, and it may sound like a ‘get ripped quick’ scam, but don’t take my word for it – look up callisthenics on the internet and you’d be shocked to see how many success stories there are.
