Quarantine – 10 Productive Things to do this Quarantine

On the night of 31 December 2019, all of us thought to ourselves: this would be the best year of our lives. The trendy teen had traveling and partying in their plan, others wanted this to be the best academic year and the summer would have been LEGENDARY but who knew it would all be wrecked by quarantine.

Drive-in movies, discovering new places and bike rides with your brothers, all this was about to happen but wait, all our dreams and desires were washed away by corona and quarantine.

The world is taking wild turns right now. None of us would have even imagined that we would be hit by a pandemic let alone being confined to our homes for the past two and a half months now.

We know it is a hard time and most of us are struggling mentally and emotionally but sitting idle at home just makes it worst. We always thought to ourselves, what we would do if we would have a vacation from life just once. Obviously this isn’t what we had wished for but now is the time. We have all the time in our hands and can do whatever we wanted to.

 One thing which needs to be remembered is:

There is no competition here. You don’t have to compare yourselves with others and feel sorry about not learning enough. Just hang in there and this shall also pass.

What you can do this Quarantine

If you are now finally tired of scrolling Instagram or binge-watching series on Netflix here are a few things you can do this quarantine to ease your boredom.

Art will never betray you and it will also soothe your soul. The art you learn now will stay by your side forever. If you don’t know what you are good at you can start searching now and make some good use of the quarantine period. Art never judges you for finding it late. Learn to play an instrument, or how to sing. Dance or just simply grab a sketchbook and a pencil. It could be hard to find what suits you best but once you find it will give you immense self-satisfaction.

Art speaks where words are unable to explain.
