While you are quarantined, all of your time doesn’t have to go to just bingeing shows and eating your cabinets, instead here are some ways to be productive throughout this almost vacation.
While stuck in your home, you might start to lose your mind a bit by endlessly bingeing on Netflix shows.
Instead, you can begin to take up the habit of gardening, even without going to plant stores. Items like potatoes and onions can be reused (from their eyes and heads) to be planted.
If you plant your vegetables from now, in a few months you might have a little farm in your home or backyard. There are several online videos to show you how to plant with or without soil and cost-efficient.
Alike reading, writing is very useful. Whether it is to be professional or to pour your heart out to your long time love, writing comes into play in several things.
You can begin the hobby of journaling or writing poems at home. Based on many ideas in your head, you can even begin to write a new novel you’d want to publish.
Reading a lot during this time can as well help you touch up on your skills by enlarging your vocabulary and fixing your sentence structures.
Bonjour! 你好! ¡Hola! !مرحبا Learning a different language can be very beneficial whether you traveling or looking for employment. It’s also a great way to make more friends than the average monolingual folk.
It’s true that knowing another language of a person can bring a deeper connection.
Take these few weeks of free time to learn another language, which when you get back to work or school might just attract a new friend.
Over the months of living in one space, humans naturally tend to bring more and more things into their homes. Unless your living the minimalistic lifestyle, then your bound to have unnecessary items within your house. Whether it’s the hundreds of clothes in your closet or your kid's old toys they don’t use, it’s time for a cleanout. You can do this by putting your things in different piles such as: keep, toss, donate, sell. These different categories will make it easier to decide what to do with your excess things. Even if it seems hard at first, it will be relieving in the future.
The time is now to start grinding..even if it’s not in the gym. There’s no time like now, where your far from the temptations of night outs, or fast food stops. It’s just you and the space in your home.
Take these days to begin to work out and tone your body. Whether you’re planning to gain muscle, tone your legs, or get abs.

You might think you’re losing your mind a bit, or you just want to shave off all your hair. Well just go for it. Things, like dyeing your hair black or bleaching it straight blonde, will be a new change for you and give you a boost in yourself confidence. If shaving off your eyebrows and hair feel like the right move, then go for it. Remember, hair always grows back, and later on, you can tell people you once rocked a bald look. Cutting yourself a fresh new pair of bangs isn’t a bad idea either, or half dyeing one side of your hair. Enjoy the time you have now to experiment.
Maybe you had moved in the past, or just lost contact with friends in the old days. Now that almost practically everyone uses social media platforms, it’s a great time to try to rekindle past good relationships.
Some might take this chance to try to talk with their exes, if you feel you want some closure to things, then feel free to hit them up again.
Social sites like Facebook and Instagram are the top ways to find almost anyone these days.
Just because the now seems uncertain doesn’t mean the future isn’t important. If anything, this will give you time to set out your future life goals when things begin to reopen.
Write down all the things you will want to do when the pandemic wears down, so you will get ready for them when it’s time. Things like five-year plans, or ten big goals for the year are some examples of what you can think for.
The future is never going to be clear, but making steps in your head and down on paper will make it easier to achieve them down the road.
