With the lockdown being further extended, it might seem to most of us what should we do in this time. With the current situation, one thing is certain that we have more time for us than we ever wanted we should have, just to try some new hobbies, to try new recipes, or what not. Now, we have more time than we wanted and still some of us don’t know what to do with it. Watching TV series or movies is okay, but if we think about the value of this free time, you can consider it as an opportunity to know and learn about new things, try new hobbies, and do whatever peeks your interest.
