If you are anything like me, being inside your house for 24 hours a day indefinitely is driving you just a little bit crazy. For many of us, we have hardly seen the outside world in the last several months. While it is not yet safe to return outside, there are some fun or unique ways to hold on to the small amount of sanity you have left.
This is something that you should be doing at all times, but during a pandemic, it is of the utmost importance. What self-care means specifically is up to the individual, but it encompasses anything and everything you do to take care of yourself. Maybe you take the time to start a new book, or even play some video games. Whatever you like to do. This will help you keep your spirits up and let you unwind just a little bit from the stresses of our current situation.
I am really bad about this one. I have a tendency to let chores or around the house projects pile up with deadlines I never intend to meet. If that sounds anything like you, this could be the perfect time to get things done. Rearrange your furniture, paint that room, do the dishes. Whatever you have that needs to be done, get it done! When the pandemic is over, the last thing you will want to do is stay around the house and spend your time getting things finished up, so you should take this time and be as productive as possible.
Learn Something New
This could fall under the same umbrella as being productive, but learning something new is important enough to warrant its own section. It is likely that you have not found yourself with this much free time at home since you were a kid in school. If that sounds like you, this is the best time to learn a new skill. If you have always wanted to speak a new language or learn to paint, or even if you wanted to look into returning to school online. This is the perfect time to brush up your skillset. Whether you want to learn a new hobby, or whether you want to get certifications and learn new systems for your job to get ahead. You have the time, use it to get ahead and emerge from the pandemic in an even better place than you entered it.
There are a billion things you could do with all of the free we find ourselves with during the pandemic. The most important things to remember are to take care of yourself both physically and mentally, being productive, and learning new skills. if you do all of these things the time at home can become much more exciting and fulfilling than letting the time just slip away. Of course, all of us just want to leave the house right now, but while we are all stuck at home we should make the best of it!
