THANKS FORYOUR UNDERSTANDING.

THE COMMITTEE



With the current coronavirus situation, many people are self-isolating. Being stuck at home for more than a few days can take its toll on your mental health. The key is to keep busy. Everything seems so serious at  the moment, I thought this could be a good way to make things a bit lighter. I found out some ideas of fun or productive things you could do if you’re stuck at home. You could learn anything online: a new language, a new skill or do a short online course. There’s so much you can learn, and this could help you to feel you are being productive with your time.
    Learn a new hobby using YouTube Tutorials.  
Text your friends. Stay in contact.
If you have a dog, teach them some new tricks.
Play a game with friends or family — even if it’s digital.
Get dressed and ready for the day every day, even if you are not going anywhere.
Write a list of things that make you happy.
Go out of your way to look for positive news stories.
Do your laundry.
Learn how to dance. To get you started, there are plenty of TikTok tutorials floating around right now — as silly as that may seem.
Create a PowerPoint of why you should stay alive, including quotes, pictures and sources.
Create a playlist of your favourite music.
Find a good podcast.
Learn a new language.
Write a list of things you love about yourself
Read a book
Many of us do not have time to read in our busy lives. Use this time to read a book. It could be your favourite book, something you’ve been meaning to read or a new book you could order online.

Sitting, standing and movement
Take regular breaks from continuous sitting in front of your computer, the TV, or smartphone every 20 to 30 minutes.
For example, you could take a few minutes break to walk around the house, take some fresh air on the balcony, on your roof or in your yard, or play with your dog for a few moments.
Make stairs your best friend
Using the stairs is an extremely good way to maintain fitness. As little as three 20-second fast stair climbs a day can improve your fitness in only six weeks.
If you live in a house of apartment with internal stairs make the most of them.
If you live in an apartment, avoid uncomfortable lift encounters with other self-isolating neighbours by using the staircase for any necessary outdoor journeys. Take care to avoid much contact with handrails.
Dance the COVID-19 blues away!
Use the stress-releasing magic of music and dance at home like nobody’s watching (which is not unlikely).  
or perhaps some Chair Zumba?
