    Staying at home is getting on my nerves. I work from home in IT but want to avoid the tendency to ruminate and get into negative thought patterns so want hobbies that can keep my mind occupied. I get eye strain , so looking for hobbies that don't involve the computer or involve over eye strain.
    Something new to obsess over while stuck at home ! Any thoughts?

    :hello:so you need a hobby that can be done with closed eyes!
    You can learn to play musical instruments like flute clarinet or mrindagam or think of words that start and end with letter "E".
    If you are a psychiatrist cum IT professional it is still easier. Your clients or customer tell their sob stories. You will be paid for listening.

    You can given insertion Ad in classified section of leading News Papers in your area that you are prepared to hear sob stories for free or for a fee.

    Possibly, There could be huge response from depressed SILs & MILs.

    You can try to make & fly kites

    Wish you all the best and regards.

    there are so so many options. but everything will need to dig into screen and learn... cooking flute ..
    only thing where screen is not invollved is i guess real book reading for which you might use screen to book from library or research.
