With the sudden rise of Corona cases in India, people are once again left confined in the four walls of their homes. Life can be difficult even without the lockdowns. But, even more so, when you cannot leave your house to go to work or school.
Even though it’s best to stay at home and not go wandering around in the public. Yet, being restricted to your home gets boring fast. Not that it’s news to anyone.
So, let’s discuss some activities that can help you have a good time at home while being safe from the Covid-19 virus.
Seven Tips to Fight Boredom in Corona Lockdowns
Almost all countries are facing lockdowns. So, it doesn’t matter whether you live in India or any other part of the world. You can perform the following activities, as well, to stay entertained within the safety of your home.
- Indulge in the Arts
Growing up, at some point, everyone wants to be an artist. May it be a painter, writer, dancer, or musician/singer. Once in our lives, we surely think about getting involved with the arts, in one way or the other.
Now, this is the perfect time to learn or practice the artistry you prefer. Because you’re getting bored anyway. Wouldn’t it be great to start writing a blog, making music, or selling your paintings online?
So, delve into the arts and their mastery because it’s a sure way to avoid boredom in lockdown(s) due to Covid-19.
- Reconnect with Your Friends (Virtually!)
Being all cooped up in your home, one can often feel lonely and disconnected from the outside world. That’s why it will be good to reach out to all those friends you have added to your Facebook but never really gotten the chance to reconnect with.
Video communication apps such as Skype, Zoom, and WhatsApp are available for you to chat them up or call anytime you want.
So, pick up your phone (or go to your PC) and start calling your school, college, or university friends to have a fun time talking with them without leaving the house.
On the other hand, if you think your kids are spending too much time on their phones, chatting with their friends, or playing mobile games, then you can get XNSPY to help you monitor their activities.
- Pick Up a Good Book
People that love reading might already be nose-deep in a good book or two at the moment. But, for some reason, if you didn’t have time to read a book before. Now, due to the lockdown, you have a lot of free time on your hands.
Therefore, use this ample time to pick up a great book that interests you and start reading!
- Experiment with New Things in the Kitchen
With many shopping marts and grocery stores being closed, you often run out of ingredients to make a dish of your choice. Especially at night time. So, wouldn’t it be great to start experimenting with the limited ingredients to make new dishes?
Who knows, once the lockdowns are over, you might just become the next Master Chef of your country!
- Do Some Gardening
Often people have a good gardening space but not enough time or money to plant seeds for fruits and flowers. But, now, with all the lockdowns, you have got no excuse.
So, if you have a back or front yard that requires some caring and love. Start planting new seeds or take care of the already growing trees and flowers.
Because gardening can be a great way to kill boredom while making your neighborhood greener. Also, don’t worry in case you don’t have a yard for gardening, you can always buy and keep indoor plants according to the Indian climate.
- Learn a New Language
India is home to some of the most diverse languages. Different regions have different languages or dialects. That’s why if you’re living in a part of the country that has more than one local language, you can try learning the others.
Similarly, choosing to learn a foreign language, like Japanese or French, can be useful as well. As you don’t just have to pass the time during lockdowns, you can build on it!
Many platforms offer courses to learn different languages online.
So, if you think learning a new language is the right move for you, go register with one such website and stop yourself from getting bored!
- Watch Old and New Movies
We all know “Netflix and Chill” is the new norm of killing boredom. With video streaming services, like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Disney Plus, you have more than enough choices to stream classic and latest movies or drama series on your phones, PCs, or TVs.
So, bid farewell to boredom by watching movies or dramas of your liking on said or similar content streaming platforms!
Hopefully, soon, things will clear up and we will be able to live our lives as before; without depending on tips to kill boredom in corona lockdowns.
