Be productive this time of lockdown and COVID-19 pandemic

The world has never expected this crisis. Originated in Wuhan–China , the novel corona virus has crawled around the globe and has infected many. Most countries have closed their doors to tourists from affected states. Lockdown has been imposed and non-frontliners are required to stay home. This has brought a new normal to many, but how do you really make yourself productive this time of lockdown or Enhanced Community Quarantine?

1. Get yourself up and exercise.

Nothing is more important than your health. Staying at home means being inactive to outdoor activities but hey–you can do some exercise to keep yourself sweating. You can do push ups, curl ups, jumping jacks or even jog at home. For more home exercise, you can watch videos from YouTube. Get up now and do some moves.

2. Train your Brain.

Due to lockdown, schools and some offices are closed. But don't you worry, you can still keep your mind active and be able to learn something new. How do you this? If you have library at home, you can now try reading those old books staying at your shelves for many years; or try reading e-books at Google Play Books. Learning doesn't end during lockdown. You just have to be resourceful and creative. If reading is not your thing, you can try writing. Be imaginative as you can, and as this ECQ ends look for publisher where you can submit your work. Go, read something! Write something!

3. Talk to your plants. Water them.

Are you busy and wasn't able to take care of your garden before lockdown ? Well, now you have all the time to love your garden. Since staying home can be stressing, and you don't have something to get busy with, why not try replanting your succulents? Or you can try to talk to your plants while watering them–the roses, and anthurium. If you have watched the trending K-drama 'Clash Landing on You (CLOY)' you may have seen Captain Ri talking to tomatoes. Believe me, it's a relaxing activity and a worthwhile leisure while at home. You can share to your plants all your worries, your heartaches, and your pains.

4. Go online and attend free webinar (online seminar).

While schools and offices are closed, you have no reason to stay inactive in learning. Take note, there are other ways of engaging yourself to professional growth. Yes, you read it right. There is really a way. Attending seminar online is now possible—the WEBINAR. Instead of scrolling up and down on your social media account, try to register and watch webinar available to you. There are many professional organizations that provide free webinars today—Vibal Publishing, Abiva Publishing, Phoenix Publishing and more. In this way, you can refresh your knowledge and learn something!

5. Watch And Relax!

If you are a movie lover, and into watching movies— no worries! Though movie houses are closed, just like schools, you can still watch movies at home. Try to visit Netflix, Iwant, Iflix, and alike. There are lots of nice movies online. Not to mention, Thai BL series 2gether:The Series, and Spanish series drama Money Heist are among the trending series today. Don't miss it. Watch and relax, at home!
