Hobbies you can adopt during this period

Hobbies can help you pass the time while you’re stuck at home


Staying indoors doesn’t have to be boring, you can adopt any of the hobbies below and you’ll be surprised at how quickly the time passes.


Are you one of those people who’ve been saying for years, “if I had more time, I’d read a book or two?” Well, now’s your chance.

Want to read a book but have no money to buy one? No problem! Just download an app called Anybooks and read all the books you dare to, for free.

If you’re into African Literature, we’ve got a whole list for you to go through.



Gaming is a billion-dollar industry and there’s a growing gaming market in Kenya. If you’ve always wanted to dive into gaming, here’s your chance. You can start with an easy game, like Minecraft or if you’re looking for a thrill The Walking Dead will do, and move on from there.



Most of us cook because we need to but that doesn’t need to be the case. Cooking can be therapeutic and it can encourage creativity. Speaking of which, now would be a great opportunity to try out all those amazing recipes you’ve seen online.



For those who are lucky enough to stay at home during this period, it’s time to get through that watch list you’ve been neglecting. Write down all the movies and shows you haven’t been able to watch and get to it. Here’s a brief list to start you off.



Now that most of us aren’t rushing off to go somewhere, this is your opportunity to establish an exercise routine. With all the beginner videos on YouTube, you can choose what works for you best be it Yoga, Pilates or Zumba. Just move your furniture aside and get to it.

Start a DIY project


Time to start that project you’ve always wanted to do. YouTube is your biggest resource when it comes to Do-It-Yourself projects. Want to knit a scarf, there’s a video for that; want to make a carpet, there’s a video for that too.
