Catch Up On Your Favourite TV Shows And songs 

There has never been a better time for Netflix and chill. As you stay home, you can keep yourself busy and entertained by watching your favourite TV shows or listening to your favourite songs. This evokes feelings of nostalgia and leaves you with the best memories. Even if you are at home all day, you can enjoy these activities with a bowl of home-made popcorn.

Join In On Challenges 

Tiktok and the likes have ushered in a new era of social media challenges. From the #fliptheswitchchallenge to the #dontrushchallenge, there are a good number of social media challenges you and your loved ones can participate in. 

Aside from the fun and entertainment they bring, activities such as this help to keep your mind active and alert. Just make sure you don’t participate in some extreme challenges that have also found their way to the social media space.

Do Something New 

I understand you may not be feeling so adventurous now that you are constrained to the four walls of your house. But there is a lot you can still do while staying at home during the lockdown. While you may not be able to go out on a tour like you would if you were on a holiday, you can always learn a new recipe, a new language, or take up that course that you know will be beneficial to your career. Strive to do something that adds value to your life. 

Keep Up With Friends And Loved Ones 

Being under a lockdown does not mean that you should not find time to connect with your friends and loved ones either via text, facetime, or phone calls. Doing this alleviates feelings of loneliness, boredom, and even depression. In fact, several studies have shown that isolation can be detrimental to a person’s mental health. That is why it is important to reach out to friends and loved ones since you may not be able to meet them in person.
