6 Interesting Things To Do During Lockdown
The lockdown has just made our lives miserable. With plenty of time in our hands and nothing to do it just makes our mind idle. And we all know that an idle mind is a devil’s workshop. We all tend to make plans for our vacations like outings, hanging out with friends, shopping at malls and so much more. But what when all of our plans turn down to nothing and you just end up being at home all alone. Well we just land up on the sofa either using our phones or the TV remote.
The basic fact still lies that when we are busy in our lives we demand for alot of free time to do things but when we actually get that we just end up wasting all that time. So don’t just lay on your couch all day. Here are some interesting ideas to help you get past this quarantine and also develop as a person.
1. Learn A New Language
Always wanted to learn Spanish or German or French but never got a chance? This is the time to seize it. Start learning a new language. Learning a new language not only makes you an efficient communicator but it also breaks down the rigid barrier in your mind to adapt to a new language. Sources like Youtube and Duolingo are perfect to start with the basics and with a little more research and practice you can even get into the advanced skills.
2. Acquire The Knowledge To Solve A Rubik’s Cube
I always loved solving puzzles and it was the 7th standard when I made up my mind to learn to solve a rubik’s cube. Solving a rubik’s cube seems very difficult until it’s done, rather it helps to develop patience, creativity, and improves the memory power. In case you never knew there are more than 150 different types of rubik’s cubes and according to surveys only 5.8% people in the world can actually solve a rubik’s cube.
3. Explore Some New Indoor Games
We all love playing games like ludo , snakes and ladders, and chess. But there are alot many interesting games which we all have probably just heard about. Explore some new games and challenge your friends and family into them.
To suggest a few I would recommend Nine Men’s Morris, Othello, Backgammon and Draughts. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a board game. Even a deck of cards can help you kill several of your idle hours.
4. Adapt A New Skill
Ever heard of some unique skills like Cardistry, Coin tricks, Lucid dreaming or Mandala art. Well there are tons of such skills which a very few have heard of but can master them with a little patience and practise. These unique skills create a strong impression on the viewers and can help you evolve as a person too. Internet is the perfect place to research and get started with these.
5. Enhance the basic activities
Did you know there are approximately 1,77,147 ways to tie a tie and we yet don’t know more than 5 ways to do it. Utilize this time to improve these basics like fashion and dressing sense, gardening, cooking, vocabulary, etc. Not that you have to be exceptionally well into these but atleast better than what you currently are. These are small yet the most important things which can define you as a better human. Photography is another basic yet interesting matter to get you busy. It isn’t necessary to have a professional camera. Even the smart phones have equally sufficient features which we hardly have any insights about.
6. Get Yourself Toned
Amid our daily busy lives we often almost forget about our physique. Remember everything else can be excused but not your health. Your health and your body should always be your first priority. Even a mild workout session for 15-20 minutes a day can do wonders to your body. We often see actors with chiselled abs and the perfect V shaped body and dream about having it someday. Now is the time to shed some sweat and begin with your physical transformation to get that perfect summer body. Don’t wait for it. Things don’t work until you do.
