We have been fighting a battle against a very vicious virus called Coronavirus, which causes COVID-19 disease. Seems like our battle with COVID-19 needs to be more serious as the number of new Coronavirus cases has been increasing with leaps and bounds in recent days. Even after the complete lockdown, except for daily essential services, of course, the people in India are not taking it seriously and wandering around. We understand that staying at home for 21 days straight is a bit unusual and is very tough, especially for those people who used to spend 12 to 14 hours a day outside their homes. The most important thing that we need to understand is that our negligence is causing us all huge trouble and putting our lives in jeopardy. Therefore, we all must adhere to the strict instructions that the Government of India has given us i.e. stay at home! To make your quarantine less boring, we would like to share a few ideas that can help you engage during these remaining two weeks of lockdown.
Mental Health Activities
We all are aware that this 21 days lockdown in India is causing us a lot of stress and mental pressure. Moreover, the situation all across the world is getting worst with each passing day. Therefore, it is very important that you take good care of your mental health during this lockdown period.
We do have a lot of time during the day at home, right? So, we can utilise this time to strengthen our mental health via yoga and meditation.
Along with the mental health, your physical health is also very important, especially when everything is shut down and we are not left with so many options do physical activities for at least 3 weeks. Now that we have all the time in the world to take care of ourselves, it is would be a good decision to indulge yourself in some physical activities that can be done while being at home only.
You can do some really helpful and easy to do workout such as no running cardio, body lifting exercises, and squats etc.
Learn New Things Online
We all have some passion and interests that most of us give up to pursue our family needs and get stuck in that cycle forever. These quarantine days is a perfect time to explore new things, finding your passion or go in for things you have a knock for. You can either polish your existing skills that will help you succeed in your career or even dig into your old cabinets or store rooms to find out your old instruments, equipment or other stuff that you did not
say hello to in a long time.
Get in Touch with Old Buddies via Online
We have to admit that in a hustle and bustle of our daily lives, we do not find enough time to get in touch with all our friends and acquaintances on a daily basis. Sometimes, we do not
get time to talk to them for weeks or even months. This 21 days lockdown time is apt for us to reconnect with those gems of our lives that we could not get in touch with in a long time.
However, make sure not to plan any outings during the quarantine or even in the initial days of lifting the lockdown.
Online Streaming World We are fortunate that even after being in these terrible circumstances,
we do have tons of things to entertain ourselves with during this quarantine.
Today, we have a bunch of online streaming websites and applications that really are blessings in disguise. With 24×7 internet connectivity, we can explore amazing contents that have been produced across the world.
Yes, you may have to lose your pockets a bit to get a subscription or the internet package; however, a lot of content and websites are still free of cost. Some of the most popular
online streaming websites and apps with amazing content are Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hotstar, and Hulu etc.
Read your Favourite Novels
We understand that not everyone loves to read books and novels. So, if you have never read a novel in your life, this is probably the best time to give it a try. You can either borrow an old book from your neighbour or can read one online. There are a number of websites and apps that provide with free books to read online. You can also explore the internet to find the best books to start with based on your area of interest. And, even if you do not enjoy reading, you can always have the option to shut the book or close the tab if you are reading it online.
‘Do it yourself’, commonly known as DIY, is the process of creating, modifying or repairing things without having technical knowledge. As the term suggests, you can do these activities by yourself at home.
DIY projects are perfect to unlock your hidden talents and have fun while doing it. You can use most of the stuff that is already available in your house. There are tons of websites out there that you can get ideas from to start your DIY projects with. Though DIY projects are popular primarily amongst millennials but they are not just young people’s knack anymore.
You can do wonders with simple and easy DIY projects and can decorate your home, furniture and interiors etc.
With the world under the threat of Coronavirus, it is really important for us to stay at home and avoid human contact as much as possible. While it can sometimes be really boring, even for the most introverted people, what gives us some relief is, that the internet is working. When all the outside activities and common means of entertainment are off the chart, we do have an uninterrupted internet connection as our saviour.
So, why should we not use it to reduce our boredom and fill some colours to our boring lives being at home, right? Hence, let us all take a pledge to stay at home as much as we can and make this lockdown successful.
Remember, this is the time when our bravery lies in being at home. Stay Safe!
