A New Hobby. A New You.
Phyllis McGinley, an American author, once said: 'A hobby a day keeps the doldrums away.' And we couldn't agree more. The pandemic has left us all with a lot of time on our hands, and if we use it wisely, we can make the most of it to acquire new skills. Not only will it help us pass the time but enrich our lives in ways we can't imagine. Taking this thought further, we asked 1,912 respondents whether they had picked up a new hobby recently or not. 30.07% of the respondents got their chef's hat out as they have taken up cooking and baking in their free time. 19.77% of the respondents are getting their hands dirty with gardening, and 12.60% of the respondent have started learning a musical instrument. 12.81% have initiated a new literary journey as they have begun reading novels, and 10.41% of them have set their minds on learning a new language. 14.33% of the people, however, haven't taken up a new hobby.
