COVID-19 has affected the world in ways no one imagined possible in early January when the outbreak was announced.
Even after it was declared a global pandemic, many believed that the spread would be contained in a matter of weeks. This has not been the case, and most places around the world are still on lockdown.
For most of us, staying at home every day of the week has been a weird experience. While it is an important sacrifice to make, there is no denying the fact that it is taking its toll on many.
Truth be told, staying at home can be extremely boring, especially for busy professionals. How do you cope with such boredom when the end is not yet in sight?
There are activities you can engage in to minimize boredom if your city or town is still on lockdown. It is best, however, that you engage in activities that are productive so that you don't waste your time and energy.
Are you looking for suggestions on the best activities to embrace? Here are out some of the ones we believe will help you kill boredom in the most productive ways:
Chances are that you have things in your home that you don't need again. This is the time to get rid of them. Whatever item you have in your home that you don't use makes your home less comfortable and hygienic.
From old appliances to old books, sort through your belongings to identify things you no longer need. Start from your closet and work your way up into your living room.
There are different ways to get rid of these items: you can donate some, sell some in the secondary market, send some to recyclers, and dispose of others appropriately.
Many of us have clothes we are sure we will never wear again. Why leave it occupying space in your wardrobe.
If your problem has been time all this while, the lockdown has provided an ample opportunity to declutter your closet and get rid of clothes you will never wear again.
Take time to sort through your wardrobe and pick out those clothes you know you don't need again. Pack them up and dispose of the best possible way.
You can pass onto some friends and family, donate to charity, or send to a clothing bank for recycling. Arrange the ones that you still need to make your wardrobe look neater and more organized.
Gardening is one of the most productive and rewarding outdoor activities you can engage in during the lockdown.
If you are tired of saying indoor and want to do something meaningful, starting a garden will be a great idea if you have space.
If you already own a garden, this can be more interesting. Look up some ideas on how to improve your garden. Use this period to put it in its best possible condition.
Staying home is not the only recommendation from healthcare authorities this period. There is a strong emphasis on personal hygiene, and you should extend it to your environment.
The lockdown offers the perfect opportunity to clean some areas of your home you have been neglecting for weeks and months. Take time to deep clean every part of your home. You don't have to do all at the same time.
Take a few hours every day to clean every aspect of your home, including your favorite home appliances. If, for instance, you have not cleaned your air cooler and fan for so long, this is an excellent time to give them a thorough cleaning. Here are some pro cleaning tips for during the lockdown.
When was the last time you cleaned your kitchen cabinets thoroughly? Many haven’t done that for months. Well, you have all the time in the world now, and you can give the kitchen the sort of cleaning it deserves.
Take everything out of the drawers and cabinets and wipe down the inside. You should also wipe down the outside of the cabinet doors and all the pulls. This is also a good time to clear out the kitchen cupboard.
Check the expiration date on most food items and clear out every junk. You can donate whatever you can spare and arrange your kitchen cupboards neatly.
This is also a good time to get fit. If you have been working out with others before the lockdown, there is no need to stop exercising because of social distancing recommendations.
You can exercise independently to keep fit. If you have not been working out, this is a good time to start. There is so much you can achieve from the comfort of your home. There are several ways to stay fit when you can't go outside.
You don't even need an instructor to engage in the right exercises: you can find helpful instructions and guidelines online and start your journey to fitness today.
If your professional life means so much to you, you can also use the free time offered by the lockdown to do something productive in that line.
Chances are that your CV needs some important updates; you can do that now that you have the time. You can also use the opportunity to update your professional accounts.
Update your LinkedIn profile and social media accounts you use for professional purposes.
No knowledge is a waste. If you believe in this cliché, then you will understand the importance of learning new skills. There is no limit to what you can learn this period.
In an increasingly digital world, you can add coding, digital marketing, graphics, and video editing to your skillset. You can also learn to play a musical instrument or a new language.
This is also a great time to connect with your family. If you are all in good health, you can use this opportunity to play together and improve the family bond.
There are several family games you can try, but make sure they are all age-appropriate. Ask for ideas and play games to appeal to everyone in the family.
Do not let boredom get the best of you during this lockdown. You shouldn’t also spend all your time watching TV and engaging in frivolous activities.
Now you have all the time, consider these productive activities discussed here. They will help you to emerge from these trying times a better person.
