While the world is fighting against the darkness of the coronavirus and is in a constant lockdown, Top 15 thought of bringing some cool ways of beating the boredom during corona. Here is what all you can do while you are maintaining social distancing, quarantine, or self-isolation.
1. BRING OUT YOUR OLD COLLEGE ROMANCE
How is it that we always complain of loosing on to the best of the hobbies that we had during our growing years. It could be anything from a passion to a refreshing hobby. Its time to bring it all back to the front desk and dust off the dirt of time and busy lives.
Use your time during the lockdown to get a grip of the old hobbies, it could be cooking, painting, playing your guitar, or anything. Just let the younger you come out in flying colours.
2. GET BACK TO READING
There are usually two types of people- one who live to read and the other who love to say that they would wish to read. The first section takes out time from their busy schedule of colloquial lives and reads on, but the other section usually waits for time. So, here it is. You have all the time in this world. Sit back in your comfort zones and read the books that have been waiting for your touch and eyes all these years.
3. DETOXIFY YOUR MIND
How is it that today’s generation and its people are too occupied with maintaining a social life, earning and beating the competition! We have gotten ourselves too much busy into the ways of the world that we hardly get time to and reflect ourselves. It is completely alien to think that we never get time to talk to oneself. Look at this time of social distancing as an opportunity and evaluate yourself. May be your growth, your dreams or the slightest things that you do in life. Let go off the peer pressure. It’s time you find yourself.
4. WORKOUT AT HOME
Most of us always complain of how we do not get time to hit the gym or do our yoga since we are locked up in our tight running schedule of going to the office, coming back, having a social life, and then doing all of it ever again. When it comes to the gym or exercising of any sort, we usually put it to tomorrow or a new year, but it never sees the light of the day. For all of us who have been complaining, here is a golden chance. Plan for yourself a quick fitness regime and pump up with it during the days of social distancing. But just don’t stop at this, plan a schedule that you can keep up with even when the dark days end.
5. TAKE HOLD OF MUSIC
With the anxiety and tension growing during the outbreak of coronavirus, many of us tend to take up to news and videos that only result in making us more depressed and tensed about the situation. It is advised to stay away from news or forward messages. Whatever we know is the maximum. And the most we can do is to stay indoors and stay safe. At this time, it is better to take to music and let the vibrations of the body calm down. Music is proven to soothe our body, mind, and soul and it is best to get hold of it at this sensitive time of world pandemic and depression. Take up your favourite jams and party with yourself. Groove a bit and forget the worries.
6. BINGE WATCH
In the trend of Netflix and chill, why not just get into it. It’s finally time to binge-watch your latest or the old favourite shows. Just tune in to your accounts and go on watching movies and web series from dusk to dawn. Do not forget, stay away from shows that would again lead you to an existential crisis and suit up to the situation of the world outside. Just sit back to relax.
7. GET BACK TO OLD GAMES
With the situation of current scenarios, we are all busy in our lives. We hardly get time to be with our families, alone the old nostalgic days. With the pandemic coming down on the world and with the induced lockdown, it is finally time to bring out the old indoor games and get involved with the families like you use to do in the bygone days. Bring out the Ludo, chess, and carom board to the rescue. Not to forget the UNO and other fun games too.
8. GET CREATIVE
With all the time in this world, get a hand on your creative side too. Try your hands on some new creative things. Maybe you can paint, or write a poem, or maybe a short story. What if you turn out to be a great chef! Use your time efficiently and find a new you.
9. COOK LIKE A MINIMALIST
In the lockdown situation, while all the stores and restaurants are closed and you are still at home, it is obvious to get a lot of cravings. But you can not possibly cook the best of the dishes with the minimal products available at home. This is the right time to experiment. Get into the kitchen and try out new dishes with some substitutes. Maybe it turns out to be a great rescue.
10. JOIN A NEW ONLINE COURSE
Some of us are really into learning and enhancing our skills. But with the tight schedule of the days, we often do not get time for enrolling into a new course or getting some new skill. With the lockdown coming down on us, let us see it positively. We can easily use this time to enrol into a new online course and learning the skill out of it. This will not only kill the time but will also help in growth.
11. SPEND TIME WITH YOUR PET
All of us are mostly occupied with office, duties, and other things in life that we usually do not spend time with our pets. Although we never ignore them or do that on purpose, the pets too miss their humans. While we are locked inside our houses during these days of maintaining social distancing, let’s be with our pets and give them all the time and love that they deserve. Play games with them, talk to them, and shower love on them. But while doing all of this do not forget to sanitize yourself properly. Also, make sure that if you have any symptom of the virus, stay away from the pets so as to not infect them.
12. FAMILY NOSTALGIA
How often is it that we sit with our families and spend time? Not much. It’s only the busy morning tables and the late-night tired dinners that we all gather together. Rest of the times are either spent in offices, schools, colleges or household works, or on our smartphones maintaining the social life. This can be seen as a perfect time to get back to the family nostalgia, where all of the family can sit together and spend time to compensate on the lost hours and moments.
13. EXPERIMENT WITH YOUR LOOK
We have a lot of time on our side, and it is okay even if we plan to get bald, as the hair will get back to normal by the time we once again face the world. Why not, in that case, just experiment with our looks? Maybe a change in the hair colour, or a change in the beard styles. How about a bold haircut or anything that we always wanted to try but were afraid of the end results? Here is the time guys, let’s just paint the hair red!
14. REFORM YOUR CAREER GROWTH
While we run after money on a regular basis, these days of lockdown can be a reflection of the mirror of our lives and goals. It is time that one must look back at its career and educational growth. No one but you on your best can evaluate yourself. Thus, re-evaluate, reform, and re-establish!
15. LEARN A NEW SKILL
While you get tired of doing all of this and still feel bored, the last resort to end your boredom is learn a new skill and get on to master yourself in it. It can be anything from cooking to a digital marketing course. With the internet to your rescue, you can possibly learn anything from anywhere. So get on to learn it guys.
I hope that these top 15 ways of beating the boredom during coronavirus will come as a help to you. And if you think we have missed on to anything, do let us know. Till then, stay safe, stay indoors!
