Do you know how to cook? If not, why don’t you take this time learn how to. If you already know how to cook, try out new recipes or new cuisine. If you are new to cooking, I will recommend that you search YouTube for the recipe as you will be able to see how they cook and understand their methods. There are tons and tons of recipes out in the internet and they are many variations to the same dish. So, all you have to do is select one recipe and tweak on the it so that it will suit your taste.

There are many online learning platforms such as Coursera or Udemy that you can learn for free. You can also take this time to learn how to sing, foreign language, simple magic tricks or a musical instrument.

Binge watch TV Series

With the closure of gym, and crowd in the park, why not just exercise in your house? You don’t have to run 2.4km for cardio or lift weights for strength training. There are plenty of exercise you can follow on YouTube that trains different parts of your body and all can be done at home. If you like to exhaust yourself, you can consider trying out Tabata workout. It is a High-intensity interval training (HIIT) that usually consist of 8 sets of fast pace exercises in 20 seconds interval and 10 seconds of rest. You can increase the level of difficulty by increasing the number of reps. If you are looking to train your core, you can try out yoga.
