Observe Self-Care During Quarantine.


COVID-19 has left us no choice but to observe quarantine. In the time of the global pandemic, our civic responsibility is to give unconditional support to the government and do as we’re told to do!

We must stay at home and keep ourselves and the people around us safe.

Yes, it can get boring! Even after watching the news, scrolling through social media and teasing siblings, still there remains a lot of time to kill.

Why not invest this time in ourselves? It’s a good time to observe self-care.

Here’s a list of things that we can do to kill our boredom in a productive way.

1. Exercise.

If you’ve always wanted to get into the habit of exercising daily, use this time to establish the habit.

Start with light exercises like going on a walk (remember to maintain social distance). Or indulge in a high-intensity activity like weight lifting, cycling or swimming. Whatever mode of exercise you pick for yourself, it’ll be beneficial for you in every way.

Exercising will kill your time and benefit your mind, body, and soul.

2. Eat healthily.

Since it’s the time when you can’t dine out. Grab this opportunity and establish the habit of healthy eating. 

  • Avoid junk and fast food.
  • Eat fruits and vegetables that boost the immune system.
  • Avoid cold water and other cold drinks.
  • Drink plenty of water. Stay hydrated!
  • Quit smoking!

3. Think.

There’s a fine line between thinking and overthinking. It’s healthy for the mind to not cross that line.

You’ve got a lot of time. Sit somewhere quiet and meditate.  about what’s working fine in your life and what needs to be resettled.

Think about the questions we normally avoid. Reflect on your future, career, family, and friends. 

Thinking will help you to define and organize experiences, lay out a plan, reflect and create. 

You won’t get this time again, think about things that matter!

4. Read.

Reading is the ultimate escape for most of us. Make use of this time and invest your time in reading. 

Read the book you thought you’ll read when you’ll get some time. It looks like quarantine got you plenty of time. 

Start reading, you got your solitude time now!

5. Binge-watch a season.

Even if you claim you’ve watched every season, there’ll be still some seasons that you don’t know the existence of. 

Ask for suggestions from friends or lookup online. Surely, you’ll find your new favorites in the process.

6. Learn a skill.

Since you got a handful of days, you might as well learn something new.

Spend this time learning productive skills. Learn how to knit, sew, draw, paint, sketch, cook, bake and the list goes on.

Select a thing that interests you most and learn. Consider this quarantine a blessing in disguise and help yourself grow in the meantime.

7. Play online games.
