I was watching a segment of a breakfast show this morning captioned “LOCK DOWN MODE”…
In this segment random videos of kids, parents, siblings and even teens doing something funny or entertaining stuffs were been shown…I got to know all you needed to do was make a video of yourself doing anyting at all, then send to a particular Whatsapp number, and VOILA you will be on the show..
All the videos I watched had one thing in common….BOREDOM… A lot of the participants were Bored, and were doing anything at all to stay sane..
Then I came up with a list of few fun and creative activities to help get through this period.
1-Learn a New Recipe
Well you mustn’t be a chef to learn how to make varieties of dishes, and you mustn’t learn all either; just visit some food channels on youtube and try recreating a Dish on your own…Who knows you might end up finding your true calling winks.
You can also use this time to achieve that banging body you’ve always dreamt of; there are a lot of Home workout apps on Playstore that can guide you through this journey.
They say “If you want to hide something from an African Man, then hide it in a BOOK”, As much as I really wished the above statement was false, the fact still remains, We are gradually losing the culture of reading! Don’t you think this lock down will be a perfect time to ignite that FIRE?
4-Review Your Spending Habit
Take a sneak peek at your Bank Statement/Bank transactions via your mobile app and see if there are areas you are being reckless. You can also use this time to track your spendings (there are a handful of apps to help you with that).
5-Watch Good Movies
Netflix can come in very handy here as the app is adorned with movies of different genre to help keep you entertained.
6-Learn A New Skill
There are alot of Whatsapp and Online classes on different skill sets at very affordable rates. Find a skill set that matches your passion or occupation and enrol.
