In this feature, we will shed light on a few interesting activities that will help you stay vibrant. No wonder this lockdown period has had a strong impact on the minds of millions across the globe. So, where many people have gained weight due to binge eating, the global lockdown has had a profound impact on the mental health of millions globally. Therefore now that we have a lot of free time at home, we need to unearth the incredible opportunities that we’ve always wanted to do. This quarantine guide will help you become a better version of yourself:
Read the Book, you’ve Been Putting Off
This is first on the list that you must not overlook. After all, there’s nothing more pleasing than immersing yourself in a book that you’ve always wanted to read. So when you get to dive full throttle in the characters and understand a storyline without any distractions, it will positively impact your brain. In simple words, books allow the brain to exercise, build our vocabularies, and lower stress.
Furthermore, if you’re a creative person, book reading will impact your imagination for sure. So what are you waiting for? Now is the perfect opportunity to grab the book you have been pushing aside and start reading it. Secondly, there’s no excuse since you can easily get an e-book of whatever content you’re interested in reading.
Maintain a Blog
Writing down your daily activities and learnings is a good way to keep track of what you’ve been doing at a certain time. Especially if you like to share your thoughts and experiences with people, starting your own blog is going to be a good way to do it. You can look back and dive full throttle in the memories to mug up a few interesting events of your life. You can begin writing privately for a website, which is often chanted as guest blogging.
However, if you want to go the extra mile with blogging, you can start your personal blog without having to abide by any restrictions. Through this blog, you can inspire other people to have a good routine at home during the quarantine. Now, many people have jumped on the bandwagon to share their experiences, so you shouldn’t be left behind.
Watch a Documentary Series
All of us like to be entertained through the audio/visual medium. Although this activity is going to potentially trap you, it will allow you to keep up with the times and see the content that is being produced. Especially if you have a Netflix subscription, you will have a plethora of documentaries to enjoy. No wonder a day well spent watching your favorite documentary is better than an unproductive day at home. Depending on what you prefer, you will always have a choice to make from the options available. Apart from having normal TV watching habits, you can also rely on watching a few documentaries at home and have fun. After all, it’s the quarantine, and you’ve got a lot of spare time.
Acquire a New Skill
The best investment is the one that is done on yourself. So when it comes to becoming a better version of yourself, it is always a delight for anyone to learn a new skill. For this to happen, you don’t necessarily have to enroll in an academic institution to learn something. If you have the drive to learn different skills and enrich your knowledge, you can start from scratch. Bear in mind, age is just a number and should never stop you from learning something new at any stage of your life. Even if you want to learn something basic such as playing the piano or guitar, you can do it at home while spending quality time with your loved ones in this quarantine. Once you acquire a new skill, you will feel more empowered and privileged.
Complete the Daily Puzzle
Gone are the days when people would sit together with their families and complete the daily puzzle. Such a fun activity it was at one point in time! Now, it’s time to indulge in the daily puzzle again and have a good time at home. Just like reading books, completing the puzzle is also a fun way to enhance your memory and witness improvement in your IQ level. For your information, this game takes many forms such as the jigsaw puzzle, Sudoku, crossword, and a lot more. All of them can be purchased for an economical price on the web.
All you have to do is, look for a puzzle that is according to your requirements. You can set aside 30 minutes every day to solve this puzzle and to have an amazing time during quarantine. Furthermore, you don’t have to panic if you fail to complete a puzzle on time.
Keep in Touch with Everyone
Do you live in a separate apartment of your own? If yes, you better keep in touch with your friends, relatives, and loved ones. Now that the COVID 19 is here to stay, no one knows how long it will take for this disease to get wiped off the planet. Furthermore, as the global lockdown is being extended, it is important for all of us to stay together and keep in touch. For this to happen, you don’t necessarily have to travel to your parent’s or friends’ homes. Take some time off from social media and register a video call to your friends and loved ones. You can connect with people with whom you haven’t met in ages. This will eventually help you stay happy during quarantine and keep in touch with everyone. Secondly, if you’ve had differences with anyone, you better push them aside and come together on common grounds. After all, it’s a small life, and we should all live to be happy.
