10 Trends Of Quarantine – Odd Hobbies to Build
1. DIY Tie-Dye
Not many of us thought we would ever see this return, but tie-dye was featured heavily on the runway this season and swiftly became the trending DIY quarantine activity of choice. Even the fashion elite experimented with the trend: Victoria Beckham snapped her tie-dye T-shirts with daughter Harper and son Romeo.
2. Dalgona Coffee
One picture of a Dalgona coffee is enough to make your mouth water, and fortunately, it’s super easy to make! The internet’s fave coffee only requires instant coffee power, water, and sugar. Somehow if you whip two tablespoons of each ingredient together it forms a thick whipped cream mixture, which you can then add to hot or cold milk and will satisfy your Starbucks cravings in seconds! No wonder it became the biggest trend of quarantine.
In the initial days of COVID-19, the entire world decided to become bakers. The process of baking is very soothing and is often recommended as a calming, mindful activity. You use not only your hands but also the five senses, engaging yourself in an activity that distracts your mind from worry and the negativity around. While the specials remained Sourdough and banana bread, people also tried out different cakes.
4. Instagram live
Going Live on Instagram came out to be a good opportunity for celebrities to connect with their fans while staying at home. A lot of celebrities were seen doing regular Instagram lives as Kendal Jenner, Justin Bieber, and J.Lo. Instagram lives are a great way for people to enjoy music and add some fun to their normal quarantine routines.
5. Zoom calls
Living through a pandemic calls for virtual meetings, hangouts, happy hours, and reunions. Pre-coronavirus, many would FaceTime, Skype, or use Google Hangouts, but Zoom has exclusively taken over 2020.
Surprisingly, Zoom has become a big part of our lives and it will be interesting to see if it remains that way, or it becomes a service that we will never want to use again once the pandemic is finally over.
6. Posting Travel Throwback
