We’ve experienced months of quarantine. We are only allowed to go out for groceries, and won’t be able to visit friends or family. We also need to maintain social distancing until the development of a coronavirus vaccine. Here are a few ideas that you can do to keep busy and keep a routine while you’re under quarantine.
Do Yoga and Stretch Out Those Muscles
During this time, staying at home and being confined to your space can be challenging. Start your day off with yoga to decrease stress, relieve anxiety. It also promotes better sleep quality, and increase strength. There are multiple online yoga classes you can stream right from your phone.
Tidy Your Work Space
Most of us are already working from the comforts of our home. Keeping a clean and tidy workspace is very important when it comes to productivity. Most of the time, clutter causes stress and we don’t need another stress right now. There are many hidden benefits of having a tidy workspace. You’ll have confidence, efficiency, focus, and good time management.
Smash your fitness goals
Gyms may be closed right now. But that shouldn’t hinder you from achieving your fitness goals. Find the perfect exercise class or fitness app online. The internet has a lot of inspirational fitness blogs and trainer videos that can show you the full-blown workouts.
There’s nothing wrong with pampering yourself once in a while. Take a bubble bath, a slice of cake, and a big glass of wine. Whatever makes you feel good right now, take the time to do it. It also a way of having a peace of mind and saving yourself from the stress of this pandemic.
Level up your CV
Use your few extra hours on your hands. There’s no better time to step-up your skills and add to your professional portfolio. Learn about interior design, web design, or even mixology for your nightly cocktail hour. Remember never stop learning new skills.
Get crafty and be creative
Keep yourself busy with scrapbooking and painting. Getting crafty is a great way to pass the time in quarantine. You can create anything. Pretty much anything that gets your creative juices flowing.
Start your own online business
If you’re one of the many people currently out of work, it’s time to think outside-the-box. Start taking matters into your own hands and set up your own online business. Although this is not an overnight solution to your financial needs. But who knows, this time next year you could be looking back wondering why you never started earlier.
Go for a green thumb
We are unsure when will this pandemic end. Growing your own food should be considered. You don’t need an entire farm full of produce at once. Start first with a few herbs on your windowsill, smaller fruit trees, and a few root vegetables. You’ll be surprised at how quickly they grow when you have so much extra time to tend to them.
