There are many activities that can be done by one and all to enjoy the little things in our lives.
We have come with some of the coolest quarantine activities that are bound to make your life awesome once again. Try these out and have a blast!
- Binge watching and chillin’
At the top of the list is the activity that many of us must be doing to enjoy. There is nothing better than enjoying the “me-time” with your list of series and movies. You can stay up the whole night in your pyjamas without a single worry in life. Well, yeah, there are things to be worried about. Like corona, bills, the fact that you still haven’t received your salary, you’re missing your friend a lot, and many more. But that’s the thing. You can get a cup of coffee, or some chocolates or maybe a bowl full of your favorite ice-cream and let all the worrries wander off your mind for some time. It’s a thing you’re never going to regret.
2. Family Bonding Time
Yeah sure, we all enjoyed it when we got some time for our families when Corona was in the early stages. The time to be together and bond wasn’t available earlier due to the fast pace of our lives. But now, many of us are bored and agitated to be locked in such enclosed spaces for a long period of time. And consequently getting farther away emotionally than before due to lack of privacy and spending too much time together without any sort of respite. In fact, according to the several researches, many couples in India and abroad, have started to file for divorce for irreconcilable differences. It’s merely because of the fact that they just can’t spend a lot of time together. Now it’s high time that we turn our shortcomings into our strong points. Look for common interests to enjoy the things that both of you like.
If you have a green thumb and even if you don’t, this is your one time chance when you have a lot of free time to start or continue this hobby. Gardening is one activity that is bound to pay you back in heaps. It’s a good time to start organic farming for some of the things you might need in your everyday life. As a result, you won’t have to go out to shop for your vegetables several times. Also, it tastes better when you grow them yourself. Try it out to see how it goes.
