Hobbies to Keep You Busy
During Self-Isolation

How to keep yourself occupied at home 
during the COVID-19 pandemic

It's a new reality that we all have to adjust to, with emphasis on keeping
social distance and periods of self-isolation.

The COVID-19 pandemic has us all a bit stressed out. Not only do we have to worry about what will happen to the economy and whether there will be other waves of infection, but we also have to deal with self-isolation. Luckily, one of the best ways to deal with the stress and the boredom of being self-isolated is to pick up a hobby. So, to help you out, we are going to give you our pick of hobbies to keep you busy during self-isolation. Hopefully, one of them will pique your interest and give you something creative to do.

Our pick of the hobbies to keep you busy during self-isolation

The only real limit that self-isolation presents is that you need to stay in your home. Apart from that, you have pretty much full freedom in what kind of a hobby you would like to pursue. This is why our list is filled with hobbies that drastically differ from one another.

Self-isolation is a great time for learning a musical instrument. You can easily order one online to have it delivered to your home. And you can find terrific lessons for beginners that will take you through all the necessary steps. If you simply dedicate an hour or two daily to playing, you will become quite good by the end of self-isolation. And, hopefully, you will start enjoying your instrument enough to keep playing it afterward.

Playing a musical instrument can be a great way to reduce stress
and make self-isolation tolerable.


Some people cannot calm down enough to concentrate on learning a musical instrument. The stress caused by COVID-19 is simply too much for them to calmly learn. Luckily, even in that case, there are hobbies to keep you busy during self-isolation. Painting is a great way to vent your emotions into something creative. Again, you can easily find the necessary supplies online and have them delivered. And you can easily start learning to both draw and paint online. Terrific tutorials and guides are abundant, which is why you should have no trouble finding the style of painting that you like and learn valuable tips.

There are so many different styles of drawing and painting
that you are bound to find at least one that suits you.


One of the more unfortunate effects of the Internet is that people are reading less and less. With all the available media at the tip of our fingers (literally) people have forgotten how to calm down and concentrate on a good book. Well, self-isolation is the perfect time to fix this. If you have an eReader, you can easily download books and read them at your leisure. And, if you are more of a fan of paperback versions, there are a ton of websites and companies that can deliver them to your doorstep. If you are not sure where to start, we suggest either going for current bestsellers or picking one of the timeless classics.

Staying healthy during the coronavirus pandemic is paramount. And there is no article online that won't mention how important exercise is when it comes to health. Luckily, it has never been easier to have a well-structured, creative workout in your home. Therefore, self-isolation is no excuse for becoming lazy or overweight. You can easily learn the basics of proper exercise through online videos and tutorials. And you can download one of the countless apps that will help you maintain discipline.

You only need a couple of barbells and a yoga ball in order to have a
terrific home gym, to keep you fit and occupied during the pandemic.

Alongside that, you can easily order home gym equipment, if you feel that different exercises suit you better. So, all in all, do yourself a favor and start exercising. Our advice is to pick what looks most fun and stick with it. Among the things that you can consider are:

Just remember to not go overboard with home gym equipment as it can be expensive and difficult to relocate, as you can learn from City Movers. And also remember to take things slow in order to avoid unnecessary injuries.


While we are on the subject of staying healthy, we need to mention one of the most popular hobbies to keep you busy during self-isolation. Cooking, as it turns out, is a great way to reduce stress and learn useful skills. You can easily learn valuable tips for cooking from watching online articles that people often neglect. And, speaking of healthy, learning how to cook meals that are both healthy and tasty has never been easier. All in all, there are a ton of ways in which you can use the self-isolation period to improve your cooking skills.

Cooking is easily one of the best hobbies to keep you busy during self-isolation,
as it combines useful and interesting with practical and healthy.


While woodworking is a bit harder to get into than the previous hobbies we've mentioned, it is still a decent candidate for the hobbies to keep you busy during self-isolation. With basic tools you can get online, you can start learning the basics and get the feeling for wood. And once the self-isolation is over, you will have just the right amount of knowledge and skills to get new tools or even repurpose your attic or other rooms in your home into a full-fledged workshop.

Even though it can be a bit messy, woodworking is a great hobby to pursue,
allowing you to create something useful and long-lasting.

If you have never tried playing video games, self-isolation is a great time to do so. While sometimes misinterpreted as childish, video games can be a great way to spend your free time doing something fun and creative. Now, once you start checking out video games, you might be stumped by the sheer amount of them. So, what we advise you to do is to try some modern classics. Games like:

are fun and relatively easy to get into. You can even explore games like Warhammer that can motivate you to paint miniatures. Whichever you choose, though, video games are still great hobbies to keep you busy during self-isolation. So, feel free to use the self-isolation to explore what the gaming world has to offer.
