Trying to keep your sanity during the COVID-19 pandemic? No wonder! With the number of cases rising daily and families now stuck at home trying to figure out this new normal together in sometimes stressful or completely boring ways, people tend to gravitate towards the internet for that little bit of relaxation between the shouts of the kids complaining about who stole whose toy. Let’s be honest here, though. The usual endless swiping through social media can get repetitive and downright depressing at times. So, how can you do something productive, positive, and still fun? Online courses! Yes, it may sound a little weird at first. However, they can be extremely interesting and beneficial in learning new skills or strengthening older ones. Here are four highly recommended courses.
First, if you have an inner passion for creating art out of fabric through fashion design, this course could be perfect for you. Award-winning, expert fashion designer Marc Jacobs teaches you the ins and outs of the fashion designing world through his course on Masterclass, which can be found through a quick search. Topics range from runways to the creative process. There are 18 video lessons in total, which is fantastic for those who learn best visually. So, get those fabric scissors out and start creating!
The second class we recommend is The Ultimate Masterclass for Face Makeup which was created by the super talented Sarah from Skillshare. From learning how to rock your foundation to picking the perfect concealer, she teaches it step-by-step for you. Nothing will feel better than stepping out in public for the first time after COVID-19 with a rockstar face of makeup.
Our third pick, a bestseller on Udemy, has over 1,800 students enrolled, and could potentially help the plant-killers and the green thumbs out there. Rick Stone in his course The Beginner’s Guide to Vegetable Gardening goes deep into the how-to’s with suggestions and tips for the prospective gardener. Being inside all the time can be extremely stuffy and, not to mention, unhealthy, so picking up the mini shovel and potting soil might be your best bet.
Our last course to help you through the virus blues is one for improving your health. In such a global health crisis, sometimes the best and only thing you can do to protect you and your family is to practice the CDC safety measures and to strive towards continually good health. Another Udemy bestseller titled Flourishing in Stressful Times – with Tara Brach could really be fundamental in maintaining a positive outlook in these scary times. She goes over important topics like mindfulness and meditation, which, really, we could all use a little more in our lives right now. It is a 4.3 star rated course with over 8,500 students enrolled. It won’t eliminate all your stress, but a little more mental health knowledge goes a long way when under pressure.
COVID-19 is shaking up our lives more than we ever could have imagined and the stress of work, family dynamics, and school changes are strong. Taking out time every day for a little personal development could be critical. Because, in the end, you must take care of yourself too.
