Covid-19 is not just affecting one country, but the entire world. All the schools are shut, rescheduling of exams, no more meetings, and we have no idea how far this will go on. So, what should one do during this lockdown period? Many have indulged themselves into learning at home during the lockdown, while others are following their passion.
Before the lockdown, most of us have been taking our lives for granted. We were all busy with our daily lives, and we could hardly find any time for ourselves. Certainly, quarantine is not an easy thing to do. Especially when you have to keep doing the same thing over and over again repeatedly. But, if you pay attention, there are many things that you can do while you work from home and learn from home.
If you aren’t sure what they are, check out these learn from home ideas below and see if you have been doing any of that. If not, try to add a few activities and feel good about yourself.
1. Time to take care of yourself
The first thing that you need to do while being quarantined is to fall in love with yourself again. Look at yourself; you have been so busy. Now it’s the perfect time to meditate, do something that your body will like. Go to your living room every morning and do some jumping jacks. Else, sit down and practice yoga, let your mind heal from all the mental pressure it has gone through.
2. Let’s learn something new and interesting
No one knows when quarantine will be over, and how long will it take for anyone of us to come out of it completely. So, rather than feeling sad and worried, why not we put our focus on something that we are not good at. Let’s try to excel that skill. Also, if there is something that you have wanted to do, now you have the time to learn it.
3. Finish your unfinished projects
Busy lives often make it difficult for us to work on our personal projects. You will certainly finish office projects, but when it comes to personal projects, we tend to ignore it. Now, you have the perfect opportunity to search for unfinished projects and complete them. While you work from home, you are saving a lot of traveling time. Use your travel time to complete something that you have wanted to finish. Maybe you have a half-written book, why not finish it now and see if your work is publishable.
4. Move your body a little bit
For those who work from home, they might not be feeling much difference. However, those who are suddenly working from home; for them, this is a new thing. To avoid feeling bored, it is better to get up from your seat, roam around your house, and meet your family.
When you are at the office, you get to meet different people who often ask you to come out. At home, you will have to find ways to get up from your seat and stretch your body a bit. Working from home creates a new kind of stress among those who are new to this new working environment. To avoid stress, do exercises to keep your body fit and mind fresh.
Like we said, working from home is new to many of you. And this can create anxiety and stress, which is not good for your overall health. Once you are done with your office work, take out half an hour, and try to meditate. Ensure that you meditate every day, you will notice that you are feeling a lot calmer.
6. Think about career plans
Probably, you have been thinking about career plans, however, work has never allowed you to pay much attention to it. But now, you have extra time to think about it.

These are just a few ways to keep yourself busy during the quarantine period. It is time for you and everyone to stay safe and learn from home. Think about something that you can do with the entire family, think about fun activities too.
