Everyday is an opportunity to do something different and to try something new - a new dish, a new routine, a new look, but not necessarily a new you. It’s not about changing who you are, but something to broaden your experience, or add variety to what you have grown accustomed to. Of course with some restrictions still in effect, you gotta be creative. But when asked what you do for fun or what interesting thing you’ve tried out lately, wouldn’t it be great to talk about something out of character and equally productive?

Learn to play a musical instrument

A ukelele is a fun instrument to start with.
Upcycle your old things
Other than upcycling being good for the environment and money-saving, it’s a lot of fun and it brings out your creativity. Turn that ho-hum of a dress to something va-va-voom and impress people in your next virtual meet or wear it for that private, romantic dinner for two.
