Things to do at Home while in the coronavirus quarantine
Now that we have to stay home and go through the quarantine time hoping to stop the coronavirus from spreading any further, it faces us with the next challenge.
What do we do at home with all the extra time that we have? How do we keep on living even if we can’t leave our homes? And how do we stay healthy, physically and mentally?
Here is a list of things to help you adapt your normal life to your home-based life. Also, some ideas on new things that you can try at home now that you have the time for it.
Keep a similar rhythm and routine as your normal life:
By keeping a routine you will use this time productively. There are many things I am sure you had been thinking in the past of doing at home that always got postponed because of lack of time. Well, now you have the time!
Instead of staying on the sofa the whole day, indulging on Netflix, which can be nice for one or two days, use this time productively.
Have a daily schedule, keep waking up at your normal time, don’t skip meals, schedule time for work, time for exercise and time for relaxation. This way your day will go by faster and you feel that you have accomplished something.
This also helps to distract yourself from the news and focus on your life and your love ones. This has a bigger impact on health that you can imagine. By feeling positive, empowered and productive your immune system gets stronger. Negative thoughts and habits do exactly the contrary.
Exercise at home:
Exercising, done in the right amount and intensity, can be beneficial for your mind and also for your immune system. It is the easiest and best way to boost your good-feeling hormones. Therefore, if you are feeling down because of being closed at home, move!
Jump, dance, squat, you name it! You can do the exercise of your preference. Make it a challenge to adapt your previous workout to your home. Use your furniture to do bodyweight exercises and heavy items to do weights. You can also check the links at the end of this article if you want to build your home gym!
Start a new business:
There has not been a better time to think about your future career and finances. The world is changing, and this is a clear example of how vulnerable the world economy can be and therefore your finances.
Starting a new business is the smartest thing to do at the moment. Think about it, you have the time for it. If you put the time eventually, you can build a source of income that doesn’t depend on a “permanent” job and if you do it, you can be in control of your destiny.
And because it has to be from your home, the best option is Online Business! If you find this idea appealing, check this link:

Spend time in the kitchen:
Because food is medicine, and we want to stay healthy, spending time in the kitchen is key. Plus, it can be a great way to entertain yourself and learn some new healthy recipes. Get creative and experiment.
Also, take your time and don’t rush through it. Make it a special moment to connect to your food and if you have a partner or kids, get them involved in the cooking process. This can be a great time to share and enjoy a good healthy meal.
Decluttering, cleaning, and organizing:
Your environment is a huge contributor to your mental and physical health. And now that we are at home, making our home extra special makes complete sense.
Start by decluttering, take everything out from closets, drawers, and cabinets. Then, make two piles, the ones that will stay and the ones that will go. After you have selected the things, you want to keep clean and reorganize them.
The things you will let go, put them in boxes and bags and look for a good new home, donate or maybe resell them. This way you can always help somebody else in need.
If we stay focused on the good side of things and make the best out of this situation, we can come out with lots of accomplishments and with new feelings of achievement.
This can be a great time for refocusing our priorities, making new plans for the future and taking full control of our health and life. I don’t know about you, but I want to be in the driver's seat of my life! I want to choose my destiny! And I want to live a life of purpose and happiness!
Until next time, stay healthy and stay strong!
