5 Productive things to kill boredom at home during the pandemic

Many have already started to get back to their routines. People are going back to work, going out to eat and having small gatherings. But the pandemic isn't over, in fact there have been new outbreaks in China, Germany and Latin America. Many countries are urging their population to respect COVID-19 measures and self-isolate. People are going back into quarantine. This can be pretty upsetting especially for those you had already started to see a glimpse of their 'old normal'.

  • Going back into quarantine can be frustrating. There is so much you can do at home. You've probably already seen everything on Netflix and refuse to bake your way through the pandemic. 
  • For those irritable moments where you can't handle boredom any longer we've come up with some productive ideas for you to spend your time at home. Check out the video and take note!
 
  1. Start an online course. There are various short free online courses you can take. Check out The Open University and choose what's right for you!
  2. Rewrite your CV. You never know when you might need to send some out. Use your time at home to make sure your CV and why not your LinkedIn account are up to date.
  3. Go through your photos and make an album. Nowadays everything is on your phone but wouldn't it be nice to print out some of those valued moments and have a classic photo album?
  4. Do some coloring! And not on your hair! Try out coloring books for adults, you'll be surprised how soothing they can be. If you don't want to spend money on coloring books you can download free coloring pages for adults.
  5. Have a spa day at home. Self-care is super important especially when you start feeling down. You don't have to go out in order to look and feel good.
