It’s week three (or more) for most of us in quarantine, and life is starting to get (dare I say) a little boring. Even if you’re still up to your eyeballs in things to do and little ones to care for, after three weeks of staying inside, it’s easy to just go through the motions day after day. But one great way to get out of that rut is to make it a priority for yourself and your family to learn something new!

There are so many companies and organizations that are teaming up right now to provide some great, free classes and tutorials for anyone and everyone to try! And what better time to learn something new than when you can’t go anywhere?

If you’re a parent, challenge your whole family to pick one thing to learn in the next couple of weeks! Have older kids with their own interests? Have every person pick one new thing to dive into. There are many great ways to stimulate your mind, push yourself to grow, and challenge yourself and your loved ones right now. Here are just a few ideas to get you started!

Free Online Classes

Other Ideas

  • Dust off that old guitar (or another musical instrument) and teach yourself via YouTube videos!
  • Ask your spouse, your child, or a friend (over FaceTime of course) to show you all about their favorite hobby, then give it a try yourself!
  • Make a plan for learning a new skill or hobby. Even if you don’t quite have all the tools or equipment necessary to start a hobby, you can still learn about it! Spend time creating a list of all the things you’ll need to start your hobby and then dive into some research, books, and/or tutorials about that hobby.

Learning something new is not a necessity, but it could give you that boost of energy you’ve been craving. When life becomes mundane and you’re getting antsy about staying inside, you can try one of these ideas to connect with yourself, your family, and the world around you. Don’t let this quarantine keep you from living and learning! Try something new today.

    This is just perfect! I am so glad I came across your article! The courses look amazing and I have just registered for them. I cannot wait to get started. As a daughter to a 3year old I am constantly looking for fun things to do with her. Now with the lockdown, it has become even more challenging to keep her occupied. These sites are really gonna be helpful 🙂 Thanks a lot!
