Taking advantage of COVID-19


We’re all stuck at home and none of us like the sound of this. A lot of people are actually suffering quite a lot from having to stay at home, we’re all so used to the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives, attempting to juggle a million things at the same time, work, our social lives and everything else in between! Suddenly we’re all under house arrest and we need to cope with this. A lot of us are having to work at home which to some is fun and to others is completely inconvenient.

This is not something to be taken lightly and so here we’ve compiled a list of some things you can do while at home, just to lessen the toughness of the situation on you and to maybe let you have some fun because after all, we want to all come out of this better and stronger.


  • Reorganize things at home

Remember all those closets and the kitchen cabinets you always say that you ‘have got to reorganize’? Well, guess what? This is your golden opportunity! You can now reorganize, clean and declutter your entire home, you’ll be super thankful later! You can even make this into a family activity, seeing as being around family is one of the pillars of the coronavirus lockdown so we might as well do some things together at home!


  • Reconnect with your hobbies

Being at home is a great time to rediscover ourselves. Remember all those crafts you used to love to make? The cards or the drawings or whatever it is with whatever you have on hand? Remember how much you love reading? Or puzzle-solving? You now have the time to rediscover everything you liked and reconnect with these hobbies, you’ll be surprised just how much they can make you happy. Also, you never know, you might find out you love something so much that you’ll keep on doing it post-coronavirus times!


  • Develop better habits

This is the ultimate time to do anything you never had the time to do before. You can actually try and develop some habits that are much better than your previous habits and try to kick some habits you’ve had before. This is the time when you can take advantage of the free time and put it towards use!


  • Learn something new!

As much as this is a time to connect with our families and get things we’ve been procrastinating for long done, this is also a time when we can learn new things! Read a book, watch a documentary, acquire a new skill! Whatever it is, this is surely a time that we can take advantage of!


Overall, there is a myriad of things that we are all able to do while staying at home during these tough times, but we can always decide to look at the glass as half full and we can actually make use of these times, what’s most important is that we all stick together and stay home and stay safe.
