LIFE EXPERIENCE

What are the things we can do while we are in quarantine?

  1. When the epidemic first broke out, most Chinese people were quarantined at home. The same is true for me. The thing I do the most is spending time on my mobile phones, but there are more things we can do below:
  2. Write answers on Quora – Trust me, there is no other platform as good as Quora to start expressing yourself as a person. Recently one of my answers crossed 1k upvotes for which I am genuinely grateful. I never thought I would reach that milestone this quickly.
  3. Learn a new language – I recently started learning Spanish on Duolingo which is a great app.
  4. Sort out your priorities – Learn more about yourself. Just sit and think. It is of paramount importance to know what your strengths and weaknesses are. This is a good time to do the same.
  5. Draw – Just take a blank page and scribble whatever you want to. Everyone I know loves to illustrate. Who knows you might come out with a real masterpiece.
  6. Do some burpees – Staying healthy is very important. Since you lack physical movement when you are quarantined, find a small space and start doing some Burpees. It is the most important thing I can recommend.
  7. Reconnect with people from the past – I don’t know about you but I am guilty of losing touch with people I used to spend a lot of time with. Social media has given me the opportunity to reconnect with them and I’m not going to miss this opportunity.
  8. Re-watch your favourite movies – Yesterday I watched the pursuit of happiness again after a long time. I felt really good after doing that.
  9. Raise awareness about COVID-19 – A lot of people still don’t understand the necessity of staying at home. Shout at those people from your balconies. Inform everyone how easily the coronavirus spreads and urge them to stay home. All of us are sacrificing so much for controlling the spread. We cannot let a few people make everything worthless.
