These days, all people are feared and forced to stay home because of this pandemic. Yeah, COVID-19 Pandemic is a serious thing in this world. As for today, the death toll because of COVID is more than 20,000 deaths in the US. Now, the US becomes the country with the most COVID death tolls surpassing Italy. Because of the current situation around the world, it is a great idea to be prepared for your own survival. You have to keep your survival fun.
Surviving is a depressing thing. Yes, it does. Truly depressing.
You can’t go outside, can’t do the usual daily activities, and you can’t travel, etc. Many people are forced to stay at home to prevent the COVID to spread.
After WHO announced the status of COVID as a Pandemic on March, 11th, many countries throughout the world start to isolate, quarantine, and lockdown their territory.
Social Distancing is a must. Staying at home feels like a survival against the time. Saving the necessary things in the house and go outside to buy the groceries as fast as you can.
So what should you do to make your survival fun? You can consider these following advice:
Check Out Your Social Media
Of course, most people have this. Social media is a great thing to make your survival fun. There are Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Facetime, TikTok, etc. They are a great source of fun and entertainment.
Can you think about the pandemic and World War in the past? How the loved ones must have suffered at that time? How have they longed to connect with each other while worrying about the war and pandemic?
Now, thanks to Technology. With social media, you can connect with your friends and family members from far away. You can find online jobs and work from home, and you can also contribute your ideas about surviving and see what others have to share about this. To conclude this, you are alone in physical, but not alone in mental. Right?
This is a great way to make your survival fun, there are many tv-series and movies available on Netflix. You can watch it all day and browse which movies that are interesting to you.
But don’t do this too much, watching fantasy or thriller movies are not good for your mental health. I recommend you to check some documentaries and increase your knowledge with the spare time you have.
Documentaries are a great source of knowledge. You can get valuable information and have something to add to your brain directories. Plus, you sound smart! It would be fun to watch a documentary on pandemics or anything you like and start a conversation about it on social media.
Youtube, one of the best platforms of fun. Youtube provides you with a bunch of videos for you to choose from. If you are bored with Netflix or don’t find anything interesting there, then you can move to YouTube.
Youtube provides you with tutorials, guides, tips, documentaries, etc. YouTube is a famous streaming site and becomes the top 3 sites with the most traffic in the world now. Also, if you have something to share with the people around the world, you can start your own channel. Which is amazing, right?
Blogging becomes less popular after Youtube arises. But now, after this pandemic and situation, many people want to reactive their old blog and some also want to start a new blog. Therefore, there are many open projects in Hirewriters right now.
If you think you have expertise in a specific niche, it would be a good idea to start your own blog. If you are confused about starting and hosting your own blog, you can start your blog in a self-hosted WordPress.
I’ve shared about Self-Hosted WordPress before. You can check it by clicking here. Feel free to read it and I would love to help you start your own blog.
Blogging your favorite stuff can be a lot of fun for yourself. It is also important to have your own online presence in this era of modernization. Good management of a blog can provide some money. So start your own blog and start writing now.
Learning New Skills
There are many platforms out there to increase your skills. You can learn some new skills too. I’ve also shared an online course platform that I enrolled before. You can check it by clicking here.
Learning new things and skills will be a benefit for you. Maybe not for now but it will in the future. It is always a good idea to learn skills. Learning can also be very fun if you are interested in the course. Especially if the instructors are good with their way of teaching.
Playing With Your Children
This is from my own experience. By staying home, I have much spare time to play with my son. I can teach him many new things and also learn how to deal with him. Spending quality time with our children is a great source of fun.
You must have spent many days working on your business or job before this pandemic. Now it’s the right time to make your survival fun. You get some free time. Now you can teach your children and play with them.
Also, Make sure you are following the guidelines by WHO. Always maintain your social distance.
Start A Healthy Lifestyle
During this situation, you should start eating healthy food as much as you can. By eating healthy food, you can increase your immunity against viruses and bacterias. Good immune will give you some great benefits.
Please note that you must maintain a healthy lifestyle. Whenever and wherever you can. Start by doing a routine and exercise every day in your home. You can start eating some nutrition and healthy food plus doing push-ups, sit-ups, planks, yoga, etc.
Reading books is also fun. Books can give a new meaning to your life and your way of thinking. There is so much knowledge in a single book. Just note that you just have to find the right book to read.
Reading a single book can take more than 5 hours of your time. It can help you fill your spare time during this situation. Make sure to read some beneficial books like a business, management, self-development, a healthy lifestyle, and books about technical skills. This can be very good for your own self and future.
Conclusion on Fun Survival
In the past, there might be something that you always wanted to do, but you never had the time to do it. Now it’s time to start them. You can do what you want and achieve those things that you are always wanted to have.
