What to do during the free time in this Lock down caused by the pandemic Corona Virus.
This too shall pass. It might pass like a kidney stone. But it will pass. – Anonymous
Most of you would relate to this quote now that the Lockdown is being extended till 3rd May. On one hand it is a necessary measure to control the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, on the other hand we have the fear of getting bored to death at home. Well, we can’t help you with the novel Corona virus, but we made sure that boredom won’t get the best of you.
While at home, Netflix and chilling is always the best idea, but it does consume most of your time and if you are working from home, it might not be a good idea to binge-watch Money Heist (maybe during the weekend). Instead of watching movies or TV series, you can actually try doing something productive. Don’t let the peer pressure get to you, prioritize your hobbies and do what you like. Here are some suggestions for you to pick from :
Get in Shape
Despite the fact that everyone must appreciate their own bodies and love themselves no matter what, one must try their best to be in the best shape possible. Most people who are overweight try to change their eating habits, starve themselves in order to reduce weight or simply accept that they are ‘fat’ and eat like their is no tomorrow. However, there is always a silver lining even in the darkest of clouds.
In the event that you’ve been thinking of getting in shape, this is the ideal opportunity. Discover what exercise causes you to feel cheerful, calm and start working out. We would suggest you start off with yoga, however you can pick whatever works for you. From yoga, to Pilates, to vigorous exercise, to zumba moves. Numerous wellness mentors offer online courses, tail them via web-based networking media. It very well may be genuine enjoyment.
Let the background be Musical
Everyone loves music. It has the power to change our mood within seconds. If you are working from home, make sure there is always some nice melodies playing in the background. This will not only help you feel less nauseated, but also pump up your mood and help you be more productive.
Learn a new Foreign Language
This lockdown is the perfect excuse to explore and learn other cultures and time is not an issue anymore. There are such a large number of delightful dialects and languages on the planet. Simply choose one and start learning . There are multiple course available online that too for free. In fact you can find such videos on YouTube as well. Imagine watching Money Heist in it’s original language, Spanish.
Make money doing what you do best
There are numerous ways to earn cash while you are stuck at home during this lockdown. One of them is making video reviews. Move over Tik-tok and make an actual contribution by reviewing products and earning money for it. There are multiple opportunities to earn a little more than your regular 9-to-5 job with apps like “Revofy.

Challenge your inner Chef
This is the golden opportunity to challenge your inner chef. Try to make the most of the time by trying new dishes everyday. Make your mothers proud by learning the basics of cooking. Move over maggi and Tea and try some exotic dishes for your own good. Cooking just like swimming is one of the most important life skills. You might not like cooking everyday but in critical situations like these, cooking skills can come handy. Be it a 3 ingredient Salad or a delicious Hyderabadi Biryani. You’ve got enough time to learn anything you ever wanted to cook.
Quit at least one bad habit
Now that your booze and cigarettes might have run-out, try to continue this habit (of not drinking or smoking). Take this lockdown as an opportunity to self-analyse your habits and try to quit them. Instead of buying expensive cigarettes or alcohol, save the money for the tough times ahead. If possible, invest that money and see what good it does to you. Not just these two vices, think of things you’ve always wanted to quit and act on them.
Let’s make the most of this time, stay home and stay safe!!!
