If this COVID-19 lockdown has locked you down inside your rooms, you most certainly have found yourself with a fresh way of managing life or even wondering what to try and do to kill your time! With all the general public places closed down including malls, restaurants, gyms and movie theatres, you are eventually stuck.  But as we all know, this is not going to last a lifetime i.e. we are going to begin dealing with our normal professional lives as soon as the lockdown ends, quarantining for a few days isn’t necessarily a foul thing, is it?

Why not use this quarantine to your advantage?

Why not use the given ideas for the improvement of your lives, building up new skills and reconnecting with your families whom you have missed and friends whom you are immensely missing now?

Slow down

Our lives are so much hectic and boisterous that we hardly get any time to analyse or examine our situations, rarely get time to sit down and spend time alone or do some self-talking. Sometimes, you want the pace of you running lives to slow down and slowing down does not make you unproductive rather, it gives you time to process the world around you, to think honestly of the decisions you took in your life regarding your careers, jobs and of course, your happiness.

Get creative

Being creative adds new spice to your life and when life has given you this opportunity to do something productive, why not utilize it in doing something you love, ranging from painting, singing, blogging, cooking or practicing your favourite instrument?

Try some new ideas or restart the old ones

This quarantine has given you numerous chances to try new exciting things or start over the old ones that you simply had been progressing to do but were wistfully prevented under your work schedule? These may involve exercising regularly (you don’t always have to attend a gym to exercise every time!), cleaning or repairing your messy room, reading and learning, creating some new habits or any other thing that you were distracted from before, now is the time relish those!

Prepare for a new career

This may sound weird, but if you have been waiting for doing something apart from what you do in your regular life or a change in your career you have been planning for, this is the best opportunity for you to do so. Taking an online course, practicing any new skill that you recently discovered, starting up a new small business along with your friend or building a new resume for your career may be all that you may seek.

Grow closer with your close ones

Due to your busy life, the time you can spend with your family is negligible. So, take this time to grow closer with your loved ones and try to build positive and stronger relationships with your family. Alongside, have a video chat to reconnect with your extended family or long lost friends and these connections can spark new amazing bonds you might have craved for!

This quarantine can be exercised in finding some new ideas, new habits and discover a totally new face of life!
