A lot of us stayed at home more than we had ever have in our entire lives. If your job is growing thanks to Coronavirus Pandemic or if your job is not affected at all, congratulations, you belong to the 20% of the lucky spectrum. No strike of luck for the remaining 80% of us. However, we have to believe that the pandemic will be over one day, and this is not any of our fault.

Today, let’s discover and explore a set of daily routines you can do from the moment you wake up to the time you hit the bed. Here are the activities you can try while staying in the comforts and safety of your own house.

Otherwise, you might have books stocked in your shelf or movies that you haven’t gotten time to watch. Our lives pre-COVID were too busy that we forgot to take a moment to appreciate these simple beauty in our lives. There were a lot of things we decided to put on the back burner.
Honestly, who doesn’t feel sleepy after lunch. Sure you can take a power nap. Or you can use the time to engage in a conversation for networking to chase your sleeping bug away. There are many virtual meetup and webinars available for free nowadays. Make sure you check up the social media, meetup, and other virtual meeting interest group. Video calls over zoom is a great way to network with people and keep you loneliness in check. Be honest, this is the only way we reach out to the world now. Virtual meetup is an amazing sight where you can bring the entire world to your room.
If you don’t already have a passion, try to discover one that you can do at home. For example, you can learn how to cook, how to play piano, how to bake, or create some DIY crafts during this time. The activities to dive into are endless. And you can get your loved ones to do it with you too.
Here are some of the ideas we compiled for you.
This is the most active time for the body. Let’s workout and exercise at home. Find out what home workout you can easily follow from Youtube. Then, start training your body for the Abs and muscles. You might not be able to get abs in 2 weeks. But you will get it one day when you learn the right tips from the Spartan Racer.
We would recommend a light dinner consisting of fruit and salad with wine or juice.
You can end the meal with hot chocolate to relax your body and do some light reading
With the overwhelming negative news of COVID and economic crisis, it is more important than ever for us to take a moment and do our daily self reflection. You can meditate, do some Yoga, or simply start a diary writing down what did you learn today and what do you wish you can learn for tomorrow. One simple advice for self reflection at this hour, do it with a clear mind. Reflection helps us to fight depression. It is necessary for us to appreciate what we have and keep living with an open mind and heart. If you struggle with self-reflection, there are many affordable options for therapy such as BetterHelp.
Take the time to offer gratitude to whatever or whoever that come into your lives. We only get to live our lives once, so make the most of out of it.
The activities that we enumerated were done with the best intention to help us to develop ourselves.
In every crisis, lies opportunities ~ Albert Einstein
