With a lot of people being stuck in their homes it seems like there are actually many trying to find new things to learn and discover which isn’t a bad idea. For example, I’ve seen people try something as simple as learning to play chess for the heck of it as it is something new to them. Or other cases it seemed like people were trying to actually build various electronics where they figure this extra knowledge could help them once everything is over with.
In some instances this whole scenario was an opportunity for procrastinators to actually finish up some passion projects that they always seem to put off. A lot of people actually started those projects as a dream to eventually make that their career instead and so I guess this is as good of a time as ever to do it. So instead of finding ways to waste time I guess you could say you could invest it into productive things.
Depending on where you live too there could be some financially support for this downtime. You could think of it like the government is paying you to learn something new too.
