With the normal routine gone and family need to stay indoors due to lockdown, it is becoming more difficult to find creative ways to maximize one’s time. While many parents are trying to control the urge not to scream at disturbing children under these circumstance others have found quite interesting ways to maximize their time. Here are some tips to keep your mind sane amidst COVID-19 lockdown.
Be Creative –
Creativity can be so powerful because it makes you escape the worries of the world for a little while and it makes time passes so quickly. So, take some time for research and try to find new things to occupy your time with and to be inspired by, such as cooking, colouring, drawing and learning new skills online. Skills like graphics designs, social media marketing, content writing, video editing, bead making, etc. One positive that will come out of this is that people will be more independent in choosing when and what to learn.
Spend time with family –
Spending some quality time with family can have such a positive effect on your health in this period. Since you cannot go out as usual to the restaurant, you could cook dinner together etc. Spending time with family doesn’t have to cost you money. it’s the quality of time spent that’s important, not necessarily the quantity. So, be present for your family while avoiding the distraction on your phone.
Share Responsibility and try to stay cool –
This may sound uncommon but there are going to be interesting scenarios taking place in homes but it’s not going to be permanent. Sharing responsibility at this period of lockdown can give you and your family control of what you want to do while sitting in the house. You could jointly plan and share some ideas, function etc.
Find your study moment and stay productive –
“Stay at home” has its perks: it provides students with a comfortable environment. Although there are few reasons why studying at home may be difficult because, at home, procrastination and distraction can prevent you from accomplishing what you need to get done. However, every student has got their highs and lows when it comes to studying. While some prefer a quiet environment, others like it noisy. So, take advantage of the moment of the day you feel most productive and don’t try to force yourself to study when your brainpower isn’t at its peak.
Take Medical Advice and Stay Safe –
Finally, in the face of COVID-19 pandemic, clean your hands regularly with an alcohol-based sanitizer, or wash them with soap and water. Avoid crowded areas when going out and try to avoid close contact with people who display flu-like symptoms, including coughing and sneezing.
