Locked down at home is not such a great feeling. But as we navigate through these times we can kill the boredom of being stuck at home. While many of us are busy working from home, we must indulge ourselves in creative things as well. This will enable us to easily flow through times of global shutdowns and keep our sanity in place! Don’t you agree that it has been days since you indulged in something which made you feel an edge over your past self?
Well, we know how to cheer you up - all you need is motivation and we are here to give you 5 productive things do to! Believe it or not, learning new things or resuming pasts interests can brush up your brain and make you feel alive and kicking.
Pursue those long lost hobbies
Work pressure, family pressure and what not! If you are the one who had to give up on your hobbies due to any of these things, then its time you start again! Now that you have ample time to invest in your hobbies - do it! Keep those meandering thoughts away and get down to creating something you always wanted. Be it embroidery, crafts, painting or playing any musical instrument, you can deep dive in the world of creativity and trust us, in the end, you’ll be proud of yourself!
Meditate or do some yoga-exercise
Another easy yet always ignored part of being active is meditation. Yoga, exercising and doing basic meditation can help align our thoughts. Our minds need it as much as our bodies. Indulge in a session every day or on alternate days and spend some good amount of time doing meditation, yoga or exercise. This can be your way to practice self-love as well!
Skincare while you Netflix
A lot of people think that skincare is going to take ages and that it is a time-consuming process and hence they tend to avoid it. Result? Bad skin days! Well, skincare can be fun if you combine it with any of your fave activities. For instance, put up a face mask or a sheet mask while you are busy binge-watching your favorite shows on Netflix. Twenty minutes, two tasks done! How amazing!
