As it is important to slow down public movement and break the chain of the Coronavirus spread, social distancing is a must. It becomes crucial for us to stay home for this time period and stop the corona virus from spreading further. However, sitting at home doesn’t mean you cannot get any work done or learn anything new. Here are 8 ideas you can explore to remain productive during the Corona virus lockdown:
- Revise your studies in a unique way
This can be for different subjects. For example, in Chemistry, you can make different solutions on the topics you’ve learnt in the previous standard. In English, you can learn new words. In History, you can know more about the historic artifacts,etc.
- Grow plants at home
This Covid-19 lockdown time can be utilized in growing plants in your garden. Grow as many plants as you can.
- Spend time with your family
The best time spent is the time spent with our loved ones. Since we cannot go out during the Coronavirus lockdown, let’s make this an opportunity to spend time with the ones who are always there for us.
- Start painting!
Take out all those paintbrushes that have been dying for use for ages. If you do not have paintbrushes, go for plastic spoons, ice cream sticks, a sturdy old visiting card, or use your hands instead.
- Lose yourself in good books
If you love reading and want to check out advanced authors, you can also go for Arundhati Roy’s ‘The God of Small Things’, RK Narayan’s ‘The Guide’, Khuswant Singh’s ‘Train to Pakistan’, motivational books by Shiv Khera, and ‘The Kite Runner’ by Khaled Hosseini.
- Learn a language
Learning a language is a fun experience but it does need dedication. A language learnt will give you an edge over others.
- Read about future goals
Read books, magazines, online websites on career planning and life goals and plan your targets in life. List down what you want to be 10 years from now and start working on your goals during the Covid-19 lockdown.
