Don’t just sit around reading updates on Covid19, do something fun!
Yes, staying updated about the status of Covid 19 is really important. However, occupying your mind with it all the time is not healthy. The best thing we can do now is to make sure we practice the preventive measures religiously: avoid crowd places, practice good hygiene, practice social distancing, and of course stay at home and go out only if you really need to. So, to ensure that you don’t get bored at home, here are 10 fun and productive things you can do during the Movement Restriction Order period:
- Netflix and Chill
Now is the best time to release your couch potato persona and be proud! Binge watch TV shows and all the movies you’ve listed as “to watch.” Don’t have a Netflix account and don’t want to pay to subscribe? No worries, just sign up to enjoy the free trial. While you’re at it, you may as well use all the free trials from other platforms like Hulu, Amazon Prime, iFlix and so forth.
- Read a book
If you need to rest your eyes from the TV screen, or finished watching everything you wanted to watch, pick up a book. Make yourself a cup of hot coffee or tea, get your reading spot nice and cosy, turn over the page, and start an adventure!
- Learn something new: FREE Online Class
You want to do something more productive? Well, you can always pick up another book to learn something new, or you can take an online class. No, you don’t have to spend money to enrol, you can simply audit any class for free through platforms like edX.
- Your Kitchen Rules!
Do you ever get that feeling—whenever you finished watching a cooking show, you feel like you can cook anything! Or perhaps there are recipes that you’ve been wanting to try, but you never had the time and energy to try them before. Well, now is your chance! So, put on your apron, sharpen your knives, and let your soul gravitate to your kitchen.
- Board games
Dust off your board games and challenge your family members or housemates to some competitive fun. If you don’t have any board games, there are always some games in your phone or table that you can play with another person.
- Virtual Party
Well, if no one is around, or no one at home wanted to play with you, don’t worry. Get your friends together—virtually—through a group video call and have a party. Here’s a virtual party idea, everyone dresses up as a character, have snacks and drinks ready for yourself, and play murder mystery.
- Indoor Picnic
If you have kids, partner, housemates, or even if you’re living alone, clear up a corner in your living room or use your balcony for a picnic spot. Decorate the space, if you feel like going for the extra mile of pampering yourself, and enjoy a relaxing day with your loved ones, or simply with good food and maybe a book.
You don’t have to go to the gym to workout. You can still sweat in your living room. No idea how to exercise without equipment? YouTube have plenty of home workout videos, and they’re FREE.
- Get your creative juice flowing
Give yourself an art project and it doesn’t have to be painting. You can write a short story, a poem, or a song; sew a dress; create a new cupcake recipe; or make a short film at home. Any creative activities that you’re interested in will do as long as you obey one simple rule: you have to do it at home.
- Marie Kondo your home
You can’t give yourself any excuses to procrastinate because you have all the time and energy now to really focus on yourself. So, why not start with Marie Kondo-ing your home? Never heard of Marie Kondo before? Go watch her show on Netflix, and then practice the KonMari method to declutter your home. Remember, a clutter-free living space is not only good for the mind and soul, but also for the body.
Whatever you do at home, enjoy it and have a great time. Always think twice before you go out; if it is not urgent or necessary, stay at home. Remember, if you really need to go out, bring along your hand sanitiser, anti-bacterial wet wipes, and surgical mask. Cube Self Storage wishes you a good health, and always be kind to one another. And stay safe.
