How have you been?
Let me guess.
Bored of scrolling on Instagram?
Or have you already gone through all of the movies on Netflix?
I can only imagine that you are right now laying on your couch binge eating.
Well, we have been there too. We know, when dread boredom sinks in, it is so difficult to escape. Plus this whole stay at home thing has made things even more difficult. We know one thing for sure, you are not alone. We are all sailing in the same boat. But that surely doesn’t mean that we are destined for boredom, it implies – it’s time to try your hands on something new and creative!
Instead of spending hours on content that doesn’t give you anything insightful out of it let us pivot ourselves into doing something productive.
And for that, we got you covered.
Here is a list of 7 things you can do while you are at home.
- Cook or bake something unique for yourself and your loved ones.
Takeouts from restaurants may get dull after a while, and cooking or baking at home is so much more fulfilling. Make a batch of chocolate cookies for the whole family, or try your hand at baking a birthday cake. Search the internet for a delicious dish to delight your taste senses! Along with that, you may try your hand at cocktails and mocktails. It’s always a good idea! If you want to add a twist to your basic cooking, call a friend or family member and ask them about their trademark meal, learn more about their unique touch on it, and see how that transforms into your own timeless cuisine.
Even though sometimes the dish does not turn out the way it is expected to, you are always left with a good memory.
Staying healthy and fit is an important part of life, and the current situations have only made it more significant. Yoga is an excellent way to keep yourself going while keeping your mind decluttered. It not only helps you stay fit but also maintain your balance. There are various exercising options. If you’re a person who can exercise over good music, try Zumba! A fun exercise plus a dance activity. Trust me, a few deep breaths, several rounds of different workouts will surely distract you from boredom. There are umpteen sources for guidance, multiple youtube channels, mobile applications and much more. Well, what are you waiting for? Tie those laces up and start working out.
- Update and upgrade your resume.
Even if you are not a recent graduate or searching for a new job, make sure your CV is up to date. Add all of your recent accomplishments and update your web page with any new information that may have come to light. Remember that a resume that is up to date and has all of the necessary information will always attract more recruiters.
- Try your hands on gardening.
Planting seeds and watching them grow into a beautiful herb garden is such a surreal feeling. If you have young ones around, it is going to be a great experience for sure. Gardening will take you closer to nature and help you relax. It can also be a perfect spot for you to spend some quality time with your family and click some great pictures. This creative idea of yours will help you save some bucks when a recipe of yours calls for some fresh herbs. Plus, you will always have a great smelling home! I know one thing for sure, gardening is never a bad idea!
- Declutter the mess.
Decluttering and organising may appear to be a boring task at first, but once you get started, it becomes peaceful for both your mind and body. It provides you a feeling of cleanliness, cheerfulness, and calmness. There is a lot of mess, no matter how hard you try. It might be old mail, unwanted books, tax paperwork, or anything else. Decluttering aids in the removal of unneeded worry and makes you feel much better. Another fantastic advantage of decluttering is the ability to donate. You may aid the less fortunate by donating the items that are no longer of use to you.
- Work from home?
You are anyways just passing time, instead you could do something productive and earn in the comfort of your home. And on in the comfort of your home. Remote work has a lot of advantages for us. It can help you have a proper work life balance and will also aid you in increasing productivity and performance.
- Level up your skills.
Consider some of the world’s most successful individuals. Those who are the most adept at picking up new talents are the ones that continuously succeed. Successful individuals make a commitment to devote their leisure time to the process of learning, and they keep their word. Keep learning, whether it’s how to play the guitar, how to make a lot of money, or how to draw a dot mandala.
I hope that out of this list you will find some new things that you want to try at home. We have already done most of the things on this list as a family, and we look forward to doing the few that are left. Have fun and make some unique family memories that will be remembered for years to come.
