DMCI Homes Condo Residents Share Their Hobbies at Home

Condo Living.

Hobbies give people a sense of purpose in tough times. These activities can help calm the nerves and recharge the mind. When done with family and friends, hobbies become a way of nurturing relationships. Badminton games or tree planting activities with neighbors can help foster camaraderie and harmonious living.

According to Head to Health Australia, people with hobbies are less likely to experience stress, low mood, and depression. “Activities that get you out and about can make you feel happier and more relaxed. Group activities like team sports can improve your communication skills and relationships with others.”

What do DMCI Homes residents do during their downtime? Here is a list of fun hobbies at home you can enjoy while staying safe in your condo home.

In a Home Hobbies video episode, Richard, a resident at Tivoli Garden Residences, shares techniques on how to do hula-hooping. Richard started this hobby with his fellow residents in March 2021.

The reason why he started trying this out is because it is fun and challenging, the hoop is inexpensive, and he can do hula-hooping anywhere in the amenity areas of the DMCI Homes community. For him, it’s a good workout, and it is a good hobby with friends.

Hula-hooping is a fun hobby that can also be a part of your daily exercise routine. As Richard said, this activity can keep you fit and healthy, and help you improve your balance and posture.

Another unique thing about hula hoop is you can do it anywhere! All you need is a small space where you can move around and you are good to go.

DMCI Homes offers spacious outdoor spaces that can accommodate your favorite hobbies.

2. Jump-roping – “Not a boring cardio”, according to @karenjumps, a resident at Verdon Parc

Karen, a resident of Verdon Parc, shares in her Home Hobbies video episode a unique technique which will take away the boredom in jump-roping. Karen started this hobby in August 2020.

She just gave it a try then she never thought that she would be enthusiastic about this kind of sport. She also discovered fun reasons in jump-roping like how she can do a lot of tricks or improvise. Karen doesn’t need expensive equipment. All she needs is a jumping rope. It will not only help her get fit but it also helps her have a good balance, and it is a hobby for the whole community which gives them the opportunity to bond. Good thing that this condo in Davao has a couple of spaces for her to jump around.

While jump-roping is more know as a way for kids to get fit, adults who get into it are seeing its benefits in improving physical and mental health. This activity is a fun hobby and an effective way of improving your cardio-respiratory health. You can also use this as a meditative activity – stay in the present moment by focusing on your jumps!

Try this hobby inside your condo space or on the open lawn of your condo community. You can also invite family and friends for a jump-roping competition.

3. Baking – “A simple but healthy recipe”, said Frankie, a resident at Verawood Residences

Because of the pandemic and quarantine protocols, movement has been restricted. People need to plan out their trips to the market and grocery to avoid infection. The remedy that most people resort to is food delivery.

However, we all know that regularly buying fast food is not good for your health and your pocket (it costs too much!). This made Frankie, a resident of Verawood Residence, decide to try baking and learn how to do it inside the comforts and safety of her home.

She didn’t only find a hobby, she can now monitor the food that she is eating. Because of the quarantine lockdown, Frankie noticed that she eats a lot of unhealthy food so instead of eating those things, she decided to bake and make an instructional video on how to do it. Here’s her Home Hobbies video episode on how to bake a delicious oatmeal cookie.

Baking can also be another way of strengthening the bond between family members or the community, you can bake together or exchange recipes. If you’re not confident yet with an oven or just one easy-baking tips to start, check out our weekend no-bake recipes even kids can follow!

Another benefit of baking your own food is saving money from expensive meals and high cost deliveries. Who knows? You can sell it to your community and make it a source of your income.

4. Yoga – “Simple poses at the comforts of your own units,” said Thea, a resident of Siena Park Residences

Everything has changed since the pandemic. Work from home (WFH) and online classes are now part of our regular lives.

An unwanted consequence of working and studying at home is a sedentary lifestyle. You sit facing your laptop or desktop for hours on end. You forget to take breaks. No wonder many suffer from body aches and stiff necks at this time.

Thea, a resident of Siena Park Residences, is a yoga teacher and has been conducting yoga classes in the condo community since 2018. Her passion for yoga started in 2012. Because of the pandemic and movement restrictions, she observed that her clients were working at home and needed quiet exercises in your condo unit.

The physical distancing restrictions didn’t hinder her from conducting classes. That is why Thea regularly posts instructional videos on DMCI Homes’ social media accounts to help members of the community reverse their sedentary lifestyles.

Here is teacher Thea’s Home Hobbies video episode about Yoga Basics. What are you waiting for? Join Teacher Thea and your condo neighbors in yoga classes right inside your condo home.

5. Outdoor exercise – “Movement is life,” said Jean, a resident of Zinnia Towers

Jean, a resident of Zinnia Towers, knows the importance of health and well-being.

Here is the Home Hobbies video episode of Jean together with her family enjoying outdoor exercise.
