Making best out of Quarantine

Well, it’s not the best that we all are going through, but we can make it one! As all the organizations begin to practice social distancing, even many businesses have asked their employees to work from the home in-short whole world is lockdown due to pandemic COVID-19. We know, most of you must be wondering what to do just sitting at home? We know, for many, self-isolation can be a disorienting experience, especially for those who are used to spending 80% of their time outside of the house! But, don’t worry! Look at the positive side and do things that interest you or you like the most, because, at this time we need to channelize our energy into something productive. Luckily we’ve put together a list of amazing things you can do to keep yourself and others entertained and occupied. 

Learn Something

Try to learn something new, maybe a language, an online course, any sort of craft, sketching or cooking! Nowadays there are thousands of online courses made available and the simplest and cheapest way to learn is to google it and you’ll find free tutorials. Remember, when you want to learn things that interest you, but haven’t had time for - if not now then when? Think about it and start learning. 

Dig out your old school time hobby 

So, what’s your hobby? What made you stop practicing that? Impatience, lack of time? Maybe, this time you should give it another chance! 

Work out, watch your health habits

The best thing you can do to utilize your time is to work out and eat right. Maybe, now you can achieve your dream body/figure. There are thousands of tutorials on youtube or even some professionals offer live classes of their workout, exercise, and dance. This is mindblowing! How often you get a chance to do workout sessions or do ballet class with the stars of American Ballet Theatre. 

Do Virtual Tours 

Your kids will love this. Well, we aren’t supposed to go out of our houses and also all the museums and national art galleries will be closed due to COVID-19, but we can still enjoy a sneak-peek into an incredible artwork by taking a virtual tour. This way, you can learn some amazing history and educate your kids as well. 

Clean-up

This is the right time to help your mother in cleaning and organizing those cupboards and drawers. This is also a great way to clean any COVID germs out of your home! Do laundry and get rid of clothes that don’t fit. Also, you can reorganize or redecorate your room and make it into a place that you love being these next couple of weeks. 

Its time to innovate something new in the kitchen 

Self - isolating means that unfortunately, you can’t eat out of your favorite restaurant, and with talk of a lockdown, you might not be able to get food delivered to you either. Therefore, this is the perfect time to broaden your culinary skills. Experimenting a few dishes won’t harm anyone, but you’ll get to taste some finger-licking food, well, this depends on you!  

Enjoy family time 

All the working lads always have been complaining about not spending much time with their family or friends. Well, now is the time coming together as a family and playing old-time games - monopoly, carom, get out the scrabble and find you have an amazing time as you re-connect. 

There are more things you can do such as meditate, self-cleaning, do the planting, do your favorite movie marathon, and last but not least staying at home for a prolonged period can be difficult, but, that’s even more of a reason to rise to the challenge. There are plenty of things you can do to remain productive, remember to wash your hands at regular intervals, stay safe and stay at home!
