Harry Styles is using his time in quarantine to reflect and grow as an artist. The “Adore You” singer has been cooped up with friends during the coronavirus pandemic while he continues social distancing, eating takeout, writing music and pondering life’s questions.

“I’ve been writing so much,” he told Rolling Stone. “To be honest, I’m doing some of the stuff that I should be doing more often anyway. … I should be playing the guitar more. I should be writing poems and lyrics more.”

The 26-year-old English-born singer and former “One Direction” band member said he believes that at first, the chance to stay at home was welcomed by many until the reality of the situation kicked in.

“There’s hundreds of people dying every day and you kind of, if you’re in your house, you get to kind of remove from it a little bit and you get to watch films and read books and listen to music,” he said. “But I think you get that humbling moment where you just remember that actually this is a very serious thing.”

Besides working on new music, Styles is also trying to take care of his mental and physical health, making sure to meditate, enjoy nature and exercise.

“I go for a run, try and get some air and some sunshine, and try and work out in the morning or something,” Styles said. “And then I’ll try to do a little work and just go for a walk in the afternoon.”

Styles also predicts that like himself, other artists will use their time social distancing to create new content while they are forced to take time off from the usual demands of the entertainment industry.

“…ultimately you have people who have a need to express themselves through music and writing and film and so many different ways, who are now having a lot of extra time with no distractions,” he said. “It gives you an ability to have almost like a bird’s-eye view of the world and your life.”

The release of the interview with Styles comes after he postponed the European leg of his "Love On Tour" concerts on Wednesday because of COVID-19 concerns. The tour will now kick-off in February 2021.
