Getting bored during a lockdown could be real torture especially with people who are used to having hectic schedules. In this light, it is kind of important to keep busy so as not to feel the state of boredom as it does kill .

The World Health Organisation(WHO) has described the coronavirus as a pandemic and advised everyone to maintain some form of social distancing and also stay at home to avoid the spread of the virus.

This period requires that you spend a lot of time at home and if you have nothing to do, you might end up being bored and frustrated. So might want to try out new things, learn a new skill and so much more.

We have made a list of activities that can help you get through this period till the pandemic is over:

1. Exercise

Provided you are prepared to put a little time and effort into your workout at home, it can be just as effective as a gym workout. At a time like this, the prospect of going into a gym is daunting and therefore exercising in the comfort of their own home is much more appealing. Since you are likely to do a lot more of eating and sitting around, a lot of exercises may be crucial as you need to stay fit and healthy.

2. Learn something new

Because lockdown isn’t a vacay, you should at adding value to yourself at this time. Learn a new skill or add to you your existing knowledge by taking a new course online. It won’t hurt to try one of the many online or self-study options. Many are even free, so there’s no excuse for not broadening your horizons. There are tons of online courses you can take from and get certification for at the end of your learning process. Remember, it’s all about adding value to yourself while you can.

3. Watch

Of course, is the only thing popular than Covid-19 right now and catching up with your favourite movies, series or soap operas wouldn’t be a bad idea. When you’re glued to watching an array of interesting movies, several hours would be passed just like that and you wouldn’t know it. But make sure to have some snacks handy by the side.

4. Read a book

When was the last time you read a book? Now is a good time to revive your reading culture, at least, for leisure. It is often said that there is no better friend than a book. Truth is a lot of us aren’t book lovers, but since we’re about killing boredom, you can try page by page reading on topics that interest you. The internet has also made e-books available to us, therefore, it won’t hurt to look out for books on topics that interest you. Besides, it is always good to gain knowledge especially when you have nothing else to do.

5. Play

It might have been years since you last played a game, they can be addictive but it is a great way to definitely kill time. When power fails, you can help yourself with other indoor games ludo board game, chess, scrabble, your card games, etc. It is worthy to keep in mind that you do not start doing it all the time, every day.

6. Clean up

This period means that you get to spend more time at home so you might as well do the needful. This is when you need to practice maximum hygiene as best as possible, clean out every part of your room, your kitchen, your bathroom and toilets.

7. Meditate

Meditation is one of the most common ways to reduce stress, Many of us are not just not sold to the whole “Mind-Body-Spirit” thing. When you meditate, it gives room for fresh ideas and rejuvenates your mind. You are better focused as your being is involved in mindfulness and you are able to focus your mind on a particular object, thought, or activity – like starting a new , improving your and other positive things.
