Everyone has been very cautious since the Corona Virus has been renamed to COVID-19 and declared pandemic. Countries have closed their borders to tourists and cities quarantined. Being quarantined at home, we’re bombarded with scary news about the increasing number of new infections and how everyone panics around the world.
Now that most of us are staying at home, how do we maximize it?
Here are 4 positive ideas you can do while stuck at home:
1) Hunt Your Friends
All of us have distant friends that we don’t get to see as often as we want, why not give them a (video) call. With all the communication apps available to us today, you won’t have any excuse not to start catching up.
It’s also fun to hunt down the ones we love (and hate) in high school! It will be a challenge since they’d be changing their profile names hiding from YOU … and that’s the fun part!
Pro Tip: Don’t talk about COVID-19 for god’s sake!
2) Play Xbox with Your Cellmate
This is the perfect time to start bonding with … whomever is stuck with you at home! Play Xbox, Wii, Mobile Legends ... with your kids. Binge watch movies, TV series, dramas, with your girlfriend or wife.
Pro Tip: If you’re not familiar with these, then pretend you’re interested, they’ll love you more for it! The goal is to have fun with them!
3) Dust Off the Bookshelf
Have you been putting off reading your favorite books? You’re in luck, coz’ nobody will blame you for isolating yourself reading your books. Just tell them you’re practicing social distancing!
4) Look For Income Opportunities
If you’re one of those who worry about the economy, fret no more. There are a lot of ways to start earning extra online. You can start blogging, a YouTube channel, or a podcast and talk about your field expertise, news happening in your neighborhood, or any deep thoughts and realizations while in solitude at home. Who knows? You might get invited to speak at TED Talks and start a new career!
