The Most Popular Quarantine Hobbies

Introduction

As we near the end of the first week of lockdown here in the UK, many of us are already wondering how we’ll survive weeks (or potentially months) of not being able to venture far from home. Cleaning the house or reorganising the wardrobe only takes up so much time, so what have people been up to once the common household tasks have been exhausted?

By using fresh worldwide data from Google Trends, we’ve worked out which hobbies and activities have experienced a significant surge of interest since the beginning of March. From card games to learning how to juggle, this is what people have been distracting themselves with over the last few weeks.

  • People are keen to learn a new skill, with searches such as ‘online courses’ ‘how to juggle’ experience growths of 127% and 75% respectively.
  • Despite claims of food shortages, ‘cooking’, ‘baking’ and ‘pickling’ have also spiked in interest.
  • ‘Starting a youtube channel’ is also in the top 5 increases, with people hoping to gain fame through an online following.
