With quarantine and lockdown becoming the new normal
it is important to stay home as much as possible to avoid the spread of the virus.
Time can be long and boring so here are some ideas of things you can do to pass the time while protecting yourself and others.
keep in touch with your loved ones
Whether you are alone or confined with your family, being physically isolated does not mean cutting off all contact with the rest of the world, quite the contrary.
it is very important, especially during this time, to keep in touch with our relatives, friends and colleagues to avoid withdrawal and depression.
take advantage of current communication tools such as FaceTime, WhatsApp and others to spend time with friends at a distance. Do multiparty videoconference, organize a movie evening at a distance and then discuss what you thought about it, or play multyplayer games online…. Be creative.
Work out / yoga / meditation
A sedentary lifestyle promotes stress and depression, while movement is good for the body and morale. Physical activity produces large quantities of endorphins, nicknamed the “pleasure hormone”.
Sport relieves stress and transforms negative energy into positive energy, whether it is a cardio activity or a relaxation technique.
so here are some youtube channels to help you do some workout at home :
Confinement doesn’t mean bad food or snacks. Learn to share the kitchen and enjoy the flavours. Who knows, it may become a new habit, which, to your surprise, doesn’t take that long.
So, go to your cookbooks and take advantage of this period to learn or perfect good recipes, while having a good time with your family. And if you are alone, no problem, share your recipes with your friends.
Here are few links if you need some inspirations :
ps: many chefs are currently sharing a few recipes on their instagram. Go have a look.
Keep up to date in your administrative documents, mails and e-mails.
Probably the least exciting activity on this list, but a very important one. This period of confinement could be the ideal opportunity to sort through all your documents.
That’s it. Spring is here. Take advantage of this time to do a good cleaning of your home if you haven’t already done so.
So use your muscles and move this piece of furniture that hasn’t moved for a long time and clean the dust behind it. Sort your clothes in the closet, make a box of those you want to sell or give away after the lockdown.
Sort through your photos. What better way to cheer yourself up than to “scroll” through your memories and choose those photos to decorate your walls or create photo albums? Share thes photos with your friends to remind you the good times you had and especially those to come.
learn to play the piano? learn Spanish? Start painting?All those activities where you said you didn’t have time to start is now over. Dedicate a part of your day to finally take the time to be creative and/or start a new activity.
