Lockdown is the talk of the town right now, but most of us must have heard this word for the first time in our life. Lockdown means to stay indoors and restrict your movements in the outside world. Well, human is a social animal and now when we have to practice social distancing, it is becoming really difficult for most of us.
Here, we will talk about the ways to make this time more productive and interesting. Need is the mother of innovation. At this time of complete Lockdown, we have finally gotten a chance to give our life a pause. Yes, pause for a minute and start living from a different prospective. Now you can spend all your time with you loved ones. You can work in a more relaxed environment as many of us are working from home.
As we know that Coronavirus is the reason because of which we are living in this quarantined life. But if we think this from a positive perspective, we can take this situation as once in a lifetime chance to do things we procrastinated. We can enjoy a quality time with our families. We can also make the most of this time by reviving our artistic skills.
So be the warrior in a fight against the unseen enemy by staying positive and utilizing this time by doing some creative things at home. Like all of you, I am also staying at home and ensuring that I should obey all the rules of Lockdown to help myself as well as to help my country and humanity.
Ideas of Creativity during Lockdown
- Out of the box thinking – start thinking beyond your usual skills as it’s the time when you can brainstorm so many new ideas. If you believe that, the concept is silly, then don’t worry, let it be. Be childish and let the child inside you start thinking. You can try out many DIY things at your home from all the available things at your place. Try making best out of waste crafts for yourself as you must have admired many such videos on social media. Well, this is the time when you can try them yourself or can try something new.
- Try cooking new things – If you are a foodie and always want to try out some new dishes or your culinary skills make you think that you can experiment with an original recipe, then this is the time. This will solve two purposes for you. First, you can provide help at your home to your wife or mother. And second, you can also make something delicious and healthy for yourself. We know only essential items are available in the market, so use the limited resources smartly.
- Try a hand at your hobbies – if you always wish to become a painter or an artist whether, its acting, singing, dancing or anything, then try to give time to your hobbies. As you are at home and enjoy the privilege of working from home, then you can get ample time to pursue your passion on the side. Now you don’t have to travel to the office so all that time can be utilized in being creative with your hobby or skills. You can also start writing your views or experiences via an online platform if you are fond of writing. Or you can also go through all the classic books that you always wanted to read.
- Open your things-to-do list – It is because we are so busy in our corporate or social life that we often ignore those who are close to us, our own family. This is the time when you can get close to your kids also. Start giving time to your kids, start playing with them, and in case you are the parent of a teenage kid, then you can listen to your child, helping you to refresh your bond with him/her.
This Lockdown has made us take a break from the daily chaos of working day and night. And it gave us some time to think about our self again. Make this difficult phase of life one of the best one for you. Make it a time you remember because of the strength, unity, and love you have regained.
