Here are a list of 8 things you should do during this time vs. things you shouldn’t do!
(Of course, I can’t force you to do anything. Just know that your decisions don’t only affect you.)
What To Do vs What Not To Do
|Stay indoors – unless it is essential||Leave your house unnecessarily|
|Try new home workouts or go out for some exercise||Lounge around the house all day, every day. (No walking to the fridge doesn’t count as exercise|
|If you want to keep up with the news, keep up||Continuously watch the news and read about the virus|
|Create a daily routine & stick to it – include waking up at a certain time |
– doing some form of work or chores
|Stay up late every night & sleep through the day|
|Start a new hobby – it can literally be anything||Let time go to waste|
|Do the things you have been putting off||Become defeated & unmotivated|
|Maintain your sense of normality |
– by this I mean, as much as possible do things you were doing before the pandemic (where possible)
|Allow yourself to believe that you can’t find ways to occupy your time|
|Talk to friends & family – this could be a good time to engage with people you haven’t spoken to in a while||Shut yourself off from the rest of the world|
As much as possible, try to stay positive.
If you find yourself struggling, reach out to someone and talk. Most of us are at home.
So, in reality most people will be looking forward to any form of contact they receive.
