The Five Best Hobbies To Do While Social Distancing

Summer 2020 is an interesting summer. It is probably the most interesting summer that I’ve ever experienced during my entire life. With the Coronavirus pandemic rearing its ugly head and the new social distancing and mask requirements, many people have been forced to stay indoors as much as possible. During the summer, the norm is for people to venture outdoors to theme parks and museums. But not this summer.

That’s why I’ve compiled a list of hobbies to do during the Coronavirus pandemic to help curb the boredom. These are hobbies that anyone can do, no matter their age. These hobbies can be done at home, in the backyard, or even in a quiet park away from people.

1–Read books, e-books, audio books, newspapers, magazines

Before Covid-19, we were often too busy to read. So now, let’s step back and read something, anything, and get lost in a world that is totally different from this.

Here are some books for you to read:

2–Knit a scarf or a hat

While being safe at home, try to learn a new hobby like knitting. Order a pair of knitting needles and some yarn in your favorite colors and make a hat or scarf for the winter. Trust me, by the time we venture outside again, it will be freezing and your head or neck will thank you.

3–Make jewelry

If knitting’s not your thing, then get some beads and string and make yourself a necklace or bracelet. This would a great hobby for the entire family from the tiny toddler to your sixty year old grandmother.

Are you good at making something? Do you have something you need to share with the world? Have you always wanted to start a blog, a website, or a YouTube channel but just never had the time? Well, this is the perfect time to harness that creativity and share your wisdom with the world.

5–Try some new recipes

Pre-Covid-19, we were often too busy with the hustle and bustle of work and school to cook. We often picked up a meal at a restaurant on the way home from work or school. Or perhaps we threw some stuff in the crockpot and let it do the work for us. Well, let’s take advantage of all the extra time we have and cook some delicious new cuisine.


Here are some phenomenal cookbooks:
