Social distancing or self-quarantine is being considered the only way of battling COVID-19. The viral pandemic is very contagious around the world. I’m currently working abroad away from home but still everywhere you go the threat of the virus is everywhere. Even in my country I’m also worried about my family and friends to be safe and healthy.
The only way out is isolating yourself at home and minimizing all the social contacts. Everyone is scared staying home but it’s the best way to help our front-liners who’s helping us throughout the journey to fight this pandemic.
I will share top ten things you can do during the quarantine times to keep yourself busy, healthy, positive, and productive.
1. Be the Great Chef in the House
Have you ever tried baking cakes or cupcakes? I think its your chance to try it now.
Homemade foods is more healthier and safe you can be sure of all the ingredients that you are using. However, in today’s busy lifestyle it is better to buy outside or food delivery. Its not easy to cook on daily basis. Now that you’re staying home all day long why not improve your cooking and baking skills. Try looking out for recipes through YouTube videos. I can share a link down below who I could recommend to check his YouTube Channel. Don’t miss out his new vlog about “Dalgona Coffee Recipe plus Few Tips” by Karl Alfred Sola Jamandre.

2. Try to do Online Virtual Training with the a Professional Trainer
A healthy mind and body is very important. If you get stuck up at home with some yoga Matt or dumbbells that you never use before I think its time for you to pull it out. Healthy food is important, working out and keeping your body mobile is equally vital. The quarantine has already resulted in minimizing our mobility which is not the best thing for health. However you can try looking online for a one on one virtual training with a professional trainer. I could recommend to you one of the best personal trainer.

4. Start reading your books that you barely touch for years
In today’s age of social media, we have lost our touch with the books. Not that we do not enjoy reading anymore. It is just that social media seems to be a more convenient way of being in touch with the world and informing ourselves. There are many unread books piling on our bookshelves waiting to be read and loved.
I personally love reading books and I will share to you my favorite Author since I was young “Paulo Coelho”.
5. Try some Artwork
You don’t need to be an artist to paint or draw I always believe that everyone is an artist you just have to practice and love what your doing. You can share your feelings through your artworks.
I express deep imaginations through my paintings
And I try to catch my own true feelings
But some people cannot see the hidden meanings
From something to nothing and truly amazing
6. Find your inner peace
Meditation is very important. By daily practicing meditation you will become a calmer person. There will be a mental serenity in every task you perform. Each day you will have a different experience so never think about the day gone by, but on the present.
Today’s life is full of stress, which further influences our day to day activities. Meditation helps in reducing stress by affecting your nervous system. Meditation reduces the production of stress related hormones like cortisol and increases the production of good chemicals like serotonin.
When was the last time you declutter your room? Do you also declutter your files or apps in your phone and laptop? I think its perfect time to organize all of your stuff. Decluttering sounds easy, but is an important method of change. Once the decluttering is started, your spirits will be lifted and you will release a huge amount of positive energy and great feeling inside.
8. Try to learn some musical instruments
Do you have any keyboard, piano, guitar or violin at home? I think its time for you to practice again. Ever wondered why people love playing instruments like the guitar, piano, flute or saxophone? Well, there are thousands of reasons to encourage you to learn an instrument.It can improves your intellectual capacity, patience, discipline and express your feelings.
9. Learn a new language
Language learning can make you smarter, improve your decision-making, and even keep your brain healthy in old age. Don’t think its too hard to understand just love the language your learning and it will be easy for you. Trust me you will enjoy for sure.
10. Learn a new dance steps
Dancing can be a great recreational and sporting choice, because anyone of any age can take part. It doesn’t matter whether it is cold or raining, as dancing is usually done indoors.
The gear you need for dancing will depend on the style of dancing you choose. For example, tap dancing will involve buying tap shoes, whereas ballet will need ballet shoes and ballet clothing. To get started, simply choose a style you enjoy and move with your favorite dance beat.
