Rarest things that went viral during the pandemic.

Social media played a vital role during a pandemic by keeping us engaged in different activities and trends. 

Let us no longer hesitate to accept that the year of quarantine was a complete roller coaster ride. It started with lots of excitement but ended with most of us finding it difficult to stay indoors. Yes! It was a weird year that we all spent. Whenever we look back to those days, we will get struck by the various social media trends that kept us engaged.

So, without much further ado, let us hear about some rarest trends that went viral during the global pandemic.

There was a time when Dalgona Coffee ruled all over the social media feed. Nobody knows about the person who started this trend, but it did not take much to reach every kitchen. Dalgona Coffee gets easily prepared using instant coffee, sugar and milk. On top of that, the pictures came out to be the cutest.

Baking banana bread helped people to escape stress and boredom. As we know, baking gets considered a wholesome activity, especially baking pieces of bread. However, the tally of baking banana bread changed. In the last year, we got our feeds filled with posts showing batches of homemade banana pieces of bread. Also, it helped many to stay engaged or start their bakery business.

Following YouTube fitness videos to maintain a healthy lifestyle. One of the best things about quarantine was that we forgot to live the regular lifestyle and got candid. It impacted our sleep cycle and eating habits too. Therefore, looking after fitness became a huge issue. All of a sudden, everybody became conscious about their health. It is why soon after the gyms reopened, some rushed to the nearest fitness centre to get applied for the monthly subscription, while others took help from fitness channels on YouTube.

Planting trees or setting up a small kitchen garden went viral during the pandemic. Gardening is one of the most common activities performed during leisure time. It requires time and patience to set up a small garden. However, the results we receive are highly satisfying. During this pandemic, we got to see people investing in organic rather than pesticide vegetables. Therefore, it is one of the most environment-friendly trends which went viral.

People started taking mental health seriously. It might be due to some series of events, but eventually, people understood the importance of mental health. As a result, mental health became the most trending topic during this situation.
