First, I want to say that I hope everyone is doing well and being safe during this pandemic. As much as I want to go outside and adventure, I know that I can't and I rather be safe indoors. I am currently on day 4 of being on lockdown and staying inside. It's a bit challenging because I know that most of us are out of work and want to go out and have fun, but can't because money is tight and very limited.
During my time inside, I started to do some activities that maybe you want to try if you're on lockdown or self-quarantine yourself.
I am not much of a cook, but since I can't really do anything outside and most, if not all restaurants are closed. So I took the liberty and started to utilize my lock down time to start to cook. I got a say, it may sound expensive because of all the produce you have to buy prior to start cooking, but in the long run it's more cheaper than eating out.
I am starting to appreciate home cook meals more than eating out.
2. Blogging or Video Blogging
Another activity you can do and with this one you can get paid. It's not easy to start getting income, but if you continue to create new content and gain enough followers or subscribers you can make great income. It's not hard to start a blog and its not hard to create a youtube channel and start video blogging. With blogging you start by choosing your niche, what you're good at and just blog about that. And with video blogging it's pretty much the same thing and it's fun!
Eventually with these two new activities, if you put enough time and effort you can make one of these two activities a new full time job and get paid great money too!
3. Puzzles and Board Games
Let's bring those good times back. I forgot how much fun board games and puzzles are. I am someone who loves the board game Monopoly. I am very competitive with the game as well. There are a lot of board games you can play with your friends and family, for example, Life, Monopoly, Clue, Twister and Sorry.
Puzzles are fun too! They do require a lot of concentration. Especially if you cannot find that one piece you need. Plus, when you finish the puzzle you can glue the back and make it a poster to hang on your wall.
Lets wrap it up
I hope you take things seriously with this whole Corona Virus (COVID-19). It's not a funny thing to laugh about and not take serious. Many people out there are sick with this virus and need to get better. Listening to your governor about staying indoors is crucial and can save your life and others as well. Instead of going outdoors and taking a risk with your health, you can do one of these activities instead.
