If you're being forced to stay home for a few weeks, you're going to want to keep busy.


Instead of watching time slowly crawl by, we could use this new abundance of free time to better ourselves and grow our minds. There are many physical and mental skills, either useful or simply entertaining, that can be learned in two weeks or less, and Redditor u/Ciniter asked people for suggestions of things that they could be learning to do right now. Many answers were completely doable and even fun!

10. Learn how to not need keys

"You can teach yourself lockpicking in 15 minutes."

9. Mend your favorite clothes

"How to sew. Good skill to have for simple clothes repairs, can extend the life of many favourite garments by years."

7. It's the perfect weather to start planting

"Gardening.... as long as you still have some local nurseries open. You'll be outside which is nice, and it's Spring-time, so it's a great time to plant some flowers."

"Raising an eyebrow, I've been teaching myself and it's working pretty great. Now I can emerge from my house ready to respond appropriately whenever someone says something stupid!"

5. Maybe you can grasp some language basics

"You could learn some basic sign language signs in that time.

You could also learn the Korean alphabet in that time too. Its very easy."

3. Have your own art class

"Doesn't sound real but you can get a really good base on drawing skills if you put in an hour or two per day. YouTube tutorials are super helpful. I know this because I did it."

2. Any kind of flips are impressive

"Do a frontflip. If you've got a couple meters of space and a nice mattress and maybe some cushions, you'll get it done in a week easy provided you are in average shape. There are YouTube videos that teach it in 5 minutes, take 20 minutes a day for a week. Easy peasy"

1. No props necessary

"Saying the alphabet backward in incredible speed. It's not that hard. You can also learn it by taking a letter at the start, then at the end, and off you go: it goes A Z B Y C X D W E V F U G T H S I R J Q K P L O M N."

It can always change for the better.

Just ask any lottery winner.

Sadly, life can also take a turn for the worst and leave people shattered beyond repair.

You have to wonder if there really is such a thing as karma, bad luck, or Voodoo.

"People who witness a person's life crumble in a single day, what happened?"
