With the current Corona pandemic still in full swing, more and more people are required to stay home as a safety precaution because they might or have been infected with Corona/Covid19. I have been in this situation myself so will let you know my take on how to make sure you will get through this situation as best as possible.
Keep healthy paterns
It is paramount to make sure you stay as healthy as possible. By this I mean, don’t go do all nighters, watching Netflix or gaming is fine, but make sure to have breaks inbetween. Make sure that you go to bed at a normal time as well.
What helped me was getting as much rest as possible, eating fruits like banana’s and mandarins also gave me some energy boost when I needed it. It is perfectly normal when you are not hungry at all (when you get sick) but still try to have breakfast and dinner. Getting some nutrients in your body will help the body heal.
When you are not able to go outside, opening your window for 30 minutes will also help with getting some fresh air in your room.
Suggestions for things to do
Try to watch series you always wanted to watch but you didn’t had time for. Now you have all the time in the world, so now would be the best time. If you are more of a gamer, try a new game you never played before. I recently started playing the Elder Scrolls Online and I really love it.
If you are more of a book person, try to read more books, or even go follow a new course on Udemy There are plenty of cheap courses to expend your knowledge on various subjects out there.
If you just want to relax, why not listen to some ASMR video’s on Youtube?
Finally, if you are up for it, why not try some excersise? Maybe some yoga or workout classes will keep you active.
Don’t be afraid
Most importantly, don’t be afraid to ask for help if you need it. We are all living in an extremely hard time and it is perfectly normal for you to be afraid. But trust me, we will be fine.
