As coronavirus continues to ravage different parts of the world, a large number of countries have resorted to self-imposed lockdowns. Though the measure for social distancing seems stringent, it is surely meant for the greater good. And I see the silver lining in the fact that now is the time we can get back to the basics, spend more time with family and catch up everything that we’ve been missing in the race to stay ahead. Here are some things I would suggest doing at home to make the most of the lockdown mode.
Cook- If you are an avid cooking enthusiast like me, now is the time to experiment with your grandma’s classic recipes. Or you can just try using that recipe book you bought but never got to open. You can even bake some cakes with kids to keep engaged and spend some quality time with them.
Read- I’ve always loved reading but this hobby somehow took a backseat, with my personal and professional responsibilities taking up all my time. I’m using this lockdown as the opportunity for hunting down the old and new works of my favourite authors and reading them.
Movies- Now is the time to dig out the all-time favourites and the latest releases and catch up on the movies you have been missing. A cup of steaming hot coffee with homemade popcorn is all you would want for a perfect evening!
Exercise- Don’t forget your exercise routine! Try innovative indoor exercise techniques such as aerobics, yoga and tai-chi instead of the gym and morning jogs. After all, you wouldn’t want those extra pounds on when you get back to work.
Dance- And if you want to have fun while losing calories, try your favourite dance form. The best part is that you can involve your partner and rekindle your romance with this amazing pastime.
Hope these cool ideas will make the lockdown less stressful. Let’s stay healthy and think positive, this will pass too!
