Because of the Corona Virus (COVID-19) pandemic, people are locked inside their homes to avoid contracting the virus and limit its prevalence. People say that it is the chance to bond with your family, but what will you do if your thousands of miles away from home? Here are some tips on how to keep yourself busy during the lockdown period.

  1. Try a fitness challenge

During this time, it is very important to keep yourself healthy. Experts are encouraging everyone to exercise to boost the immune system. There are plenty of fitness challenges you can try out from home, so after the lockdown, you will be fitter, leaner, or stronger.

  1. Watch films, series, or documentaries

It seems like everyone does not know how to spend much of their time during this lockdown. Watching films, series, or documentaries will surely kill your boredom. If you don’t want to pay for the subscriptions, there are actually a lot available online.

  1. Cook something new

You can improve your cooking skills during the lockdown. When you’re at home, you can finally spend time cooking things from scratch. There are online recipes you can follow. Some are even for budget recipes. You can also cook hearty and healthy meals for yourself.

  1. Learn a language

Have you always wanted to speak Italian, Japanese, or any other language? Lockdown gives you plenty of time to dedicate to learning a new language. You may start by familiarizing yourself with the characters and the basic expressions. You may also watch a film in that foreign language to fully immerse yourself into learning it. If you’re still struggling with English, then you use the time to improve your communication.

  1. Deep clean your house/room

Maybe when you’re still having classes, you have little time to clean your house and organize your things. Between dirty tiling, dusty drawers, and stained carpets, you can actually spend time to deep clean your house. You may also rearrange your furniture for a different vibe.

  1. Declutter your home

Aside from deep cleaning your house, you may also do decluttering. To help you decide, remove the items that have been idle in your drawers for a year. It means you can live without them. Maybe it’s time for other people to use them. Look for items that you no longer need and have them for donation, or for trash.
