What is life but a series of tests?—and COVID-19 has to be one of the biggest tests of them all.
The pandemic has changed lives and will continue to do so until it’s been defeated. This is a test where the citizens of the world must unite against a single cause to save humanity.
From practicing social distancing and minimizing contact with the outside world to staying home as much as you can, all of us must do our part to make sure that this pandemic doesn’t take any more lives than it already has.
But staying in quarantine isn’t the easiest. There comes a time when you can’t help but break the rules and go out. If you’re close to that point, here are a few tips that can help you stay motivated during the coronavirus pandemic and stay indoors.
Now that some of us don’t have to deal with the hassle of a work commute or weekend playdates, we have more extra time on our hands than we can handle.
This gives us the perfect opportunity to start something new or do something that has been on hold for a while. Perhaps you wanted to test your cooking skills or begin gardening?
Anything as simple as starting a bullet journal can be engaging and helpful—as long as it keeps you indoors.
Without a set schedule, life can seem monotonous and boring. If you feel that the continuous tiresome days are making the walls close in on you, become the architect of your own life and create a schedule.
Not only will this help you ground yourself, but it will also give you a purpose.
Set small tasks and goals that you can do so that you also experience a sense of achievement when you complete them.
Be mindful of your health and schedule breaks for your peace of mind.
If you go to sleep at 3 am every night, just like those memes on social media say, you’re not doing yourselves any favors.
Not only is this affecting your lifestyle for the worst, but it’s also hampering your productivity. The longer you stay up, the more havoc you’re wreaking on your body.
To stay productive, be consistent and deliberate about getting at least six to eight hours of sleep in a day. Set the alarm, and when it goes off, make sure you don’t snooze and go back to sleep.
If COVID-19 has taught us anything, it’s that there’s more than one way to socialize with our friends. Thanks to social media and a range of video chatting apps, you can easily schedule date nights or virtual happy hours with your friends.
This will help you maintain a semblance of normalcy during the pandemic of uncertainty. It will also help you keep feelings of isolation and loneliness at bay.
