Nowadays, with the help of the Internet, it seems like we have free access to a wide source of knowledge. From online videos to tutorials and step-by-step explanatory audio books, everything seems possible if you want to pick up a new skill on the Internet. So why not take things to another level and start doing something more with your life?
First of all, let’s do a simple imagination exercise. Close your eyes, free your mind for a few seconds and think of what makes you happy. Name five things that truly make you happy and try to turn them into daily activities or career choices. If you like traveling, why not start a traveling blog. If you’re into woodcraft, why not take the time and learn how to do that on your own?
What I’m trying to say is that we live in a world where truly, impossible is nothing. As a self-though enthusiast, I found that we have so little time by comparison with the number of skills and jobs we could learn, so why waste another precious second?
If you think about picking up a new sport, changing your career or improving your self-esteem, I have just the right things for you. Here is a list of the most popular DIY courses you can now take online, for free or for a small initial investment.
Doodling, scribbling, and arts
If you’re into arts and crafts or simply want to improve your drawing talents, there are plenty of online courses for free that can teach you the basics of technical drawing. With just the right amount of patience and determination, you can learn how to draw faces, croquis, foods, floral illustrations, and more.
This is a great option for kids and children who need something creative and mind-challenging to occupy their spare time. It is also an easy therapeutical way to communicate with special people and better understand their needs. Again, you won’t require a degree in Fine Arts or thousands of dollars in your account, but merely some spare time, crayons, and a lot of patience.
From candles to cleaning products, cosmetics, and decorations, there is certainly at least one online class that can teach you the basics. Most of these crafts classes are for free and mainly target young or older women who have a lot of spare time or spend most of their time inside the house.
The good thing is that most of the ingredients required you will easily find in your kitchen already, so you won’t be spending a lot of materials. If you’re passionate about interior decorations and natural cosmetic products, these courses are a match made in heaven for you.
