New Skills You Can Learn During Quarantine

Posted by on July 20, 2020 in Careers, Education with 0 Comments

With many countries on lockdown or partial lockdown and many people closing business or losing their jobs, people are stuck at home with nothing to do. It can be stressful staying locked up all day with nothing to do than previous days when you had a busy day. How about you take advantage of all this free time you have and learn a new skill? Whether it's a new skill you wanted to learn or a hobby you've meant to pick up again, this is the perfect time to do it while in isolation.

Here are a few choices:

Baking and cooking

From cakes to pizzas and full-course meals, this is your chance to perfect your cooking skills or learn how to cook new dishes. Take advantage of recipes posted online for free and try them out. You can even include the kids on some of the preparation methods. It will give them something to do, too, and it's fun. Try recipes with readily available ingredients, or even try being creative and make something of your own.

If you have the ingredients stocked up in your pantry, that's even better. You can also have the groceries or some of the things you need to be delivered to you. Alternatively, you can take this chance to take a walk and go grocery shopping, but don’t forget to clean or sanitize your hands, keep your distance, and wear a Disposable Face Mask.

Teach yourself a new language.

Learning a new language is something many of us wish we could do if we only had more time. Why not take this chance and all this free time and do just that? Whichever language you want, French, Italian, Spanish, or Swahili, it could make a big difference when you finally get through the pandemic.

If you can show off your new language skills the next time you go out to an Italian restaurant, you should order in fluent Italian. How about that? You can also try your newfound skills when traveling to new places after the pandemic. Imagine being able to converse with the locals. It would make communication so easy, and you can add it to your resume when looking for work.

There are so many apps you can download that will help you learn any language you want.

Learn how to make clothes.

If you're a fashionable person, and you're always dreaming of new designs you could make, how about you turn that dream into reality? Learning how to crochet, knit, or sew could be useful for spending your time during the lockdown. Some satisfaction comes with wearing something you've created from scratch. It could be a lovely dress or shirt, a beautiful warm scarf, or a blanket.

You can also repair some old clothes and restore them to their former glory. Include the kids in these and teach them how to create new things like socks, or fix some of their old clothes. It’s fun and will keep feelings of boredom and anxiety away during this time of the pandemic.
