Being stuck at the house for an indefinite period of time can surely suck out the motivation out of your system. Paired with the uncertainty of this global pandemic, losing sanity has become absolutely normal. But we are here to help you stay sane.
Just because you are staying home doesn’t mean you have to get bored scrolling your IG until you are all caught up. There are plenty of ways in which you can kill time and be productive while stuck at home.
Pick Up A New Skill
Have you always been envious of your guitarist friend because you never got the chance to learn guitar with your otherwise hectic life? Well, if quarantine didn’t do you any good until now, here’s your chance to order your rockstar guitar and take online guitar lessons.
The internet is also flooded with digital marketing courses, eLearning courses, and endless training programs. Use this time to pick up a new skill and master that.
Make Your Own Tarot Card Deck
Explore your spiritual side and use your energy to make your own tarot cards. It can be fun to create cards with artwork on them and reiterate their meanings. Once you are done with the process, you can start by giving your family and friends readings. However, don’t claim to be a professional when doing so. Sometimes, people can take interpretations very seriously and feel scared to get a real one.
Have you had those hard-covered encyclopedia books or fiction novels lying on your shelf since you were a kid? We are sure you stocked them for a good reason. So, now that you don’t have a hectic work or social life to blame, we suggest you declutter your shelf, dust those untouched books, and try reading them.
If you find reading hard copies taxing or boring, you could also give audiobooks a try. What’s more, if you want to enhance your knowledge, podcasts can also be put to great use.
Focus On Yourself
Not all of us are currently fitness freaks. But quarantine is a great time to start your fitness journey. Exercising regularly can boost your levels of endorphins, reduce stress, improve your skin and alleviate your mood. Moreover, it can help you feel energetic.
Even though you may be tempted to nap 2-3 times a day, it’s crucial to stay physically fit. Rather than waiting for the gyms to reopen, follow fitness influencers on youtube/ social media and take inspiration from them. You can also enroll yourself in online fitness classes. Whether you are a beginner or intermediate, you will find multiple courses for your individual fitness levels and goals.
Make Mental Health Your Priority
Is the fear of uncertainty making you anxious? Most of us are feeling this way. Enlisted below are ways to beat anxiety like a boss.
- Stay connected to your friends and family.
- Start journaling. Penning down all your emotions can help you let go of negative feelings.
- Practice mindfulness through yoga, meditation, and incorporating deep breathing techniques into your routine.
- Consult a psychic. They can help you transform negative thoughts into positive energy.
This global pandemic has been tough on all of us. And how could it not be? The entire world has come to a standstill. That said, feeling confused during this time is completely normal. Everyone does different things and takes different steps to adjust to the new normal. And you must do what suits you best. No matter how much time it takes to rewire.
Just don’t lose hope. We are in this together.
