As many of you may already know we are facing a dreadful epidemic on its prime. COVID-19 virus has affected many lives of people belonging to not just one city or a country but all around the world. The rising threat has made us fearfully uncertain of our future. The News broadcasts a constantly increasing tally of COVID-19 victims and the people are terrified of their impending doom.
As if the disease alone wasn’t enough, we are confined in our homes as a precaution against the COVID-19 pandemic. The people who suffer from this dreadful disease are kept separately even the doctors won’t touch them without protection. Moreover, if the patient unfortunately dies, it is said to be wrapped up in a bag and then put into the coffins before burying. The relatives can’t even see the faces of their loved ones one last time as they depart from this world.
More than anything the COVID-19 epidemic has taught us to value our lives more. Keeping this and the fact that we are better off making ourselves busy in some sort of useful activity than to sit idly waiting for death. I decided to come up with this list of Productive Things you can do in Quarantine time 2020.
So, without wasting any more time let’s get right into it
#1 ‘Time for Some Serious Cleaning’
We know work has been keeping you busy and now you have plenty of time on hands. it’s time you consider cleaning thoroughly. Like that tape recorder, your grandfather gave you years ago. Cleaning is always a good plan to ensure sanity against the COVID-19 threat. It keeps your mind off of things that damage your mental health. Besides, you might have heard “Cleanliness is next to Godliness”.
This will give you a headstart to do something productive. Moreover, it will create a healthier environment around you. Who knows, you might just get through these terrible times unscathed.
#2 ‘Pay Attention to Hobbies’
Just like cleaning, you have been putting off doing what you like for a bit too long. Given that you now spend more time at home than you ever could before, COVID-19 Quarantine gives you the chance to finally get back to your favorite activity. Hobbies are a fun way to put off troubling things behind and move forward. This fact is true for everyone whether you are a painter, singer, writer, or whatever.
Time to get that rotting canvas out of the basement and start painting your dreams. Or sing your heart out, this is another great way to connect with people during COVID-19 lockdown. If you are a writer you can do the same but instead of lyrics, you use the power of words.
#3 ‘Become a Volunteer’
Now, you might not be suffering than much other than being unable to get out of the house without wearing a face mask cause of COVID-19 prevention. But, some people didn’t have the houses in the first place or people who worked on daily wages and now are unemployed. Earning daily bread has become more of a burden on their shoulders.
During times like this, the best solution is to shoulder their pain like a true humanitarian would. So, if you are getting by fine during COVID-19 pandemic you should consider volunteering. Countless agencies are providing COVID-19 funds for the needy and you can become a part of this amazing kind act.
