Heart to heart: 5 ways to make the most of your days during the lockdown

As we start the second day of lockdown in Nigeria,  joining people in other parts of the world, people are quickly getting bored.

Several games have been flying around on the internet and on social media, like picture games and the popular Houseparty. While some people are bored enough to want to go back to work already, many are trying to find productive ways to pass the time.

It’s too easy to spend the day watching movies and watching the time fly away without doing anything constructive. But you don’t have to do that.

Instead of spending all day eating, watching movies, and playing games, you can do more productive things with your time. You don’t have to put too much pressure on yourself to go the extra mile. Doing just enough is okay too.

Think about all the things you’ve always wanted to do, a new skill you’ve always wanted to learn and get started.

Check out five things you can do to make the most of your days during the lockdown. Many of these things will not only help the time pass faster but will also boost your soul and make you feel more accomplished.

Heart to heart: 5 ways to make the most of your days during the lockdown

Do some spring cleaning

Lots of people reserve thorough cleaning for the weekend, but this time is the best to get some spring cleaning in. Instead of doing some surface cleaning here and there, you can completely clean your home from top to bottom.

Choose a new room every day and make sure you get even the hardest corners you’d thought would be hard to reach. By the time you’re done, you’ll feel fulfilled having achieved this task.

Learn a new language

Have you ever wanted to learn a new language but just haven’t had the time or the motivation to do so? This is the perfect time to do so.

There are several applications that can be easily installed on your phone and YouTube videos that make the process easier. If you start today, you’ll be amazing at it when the lockdown is over.

Learn a new skill

Learning a new skill is not as hard as you think it is. All it takes is you, some dedication, and time, which you now have enough of.

Identify the skill or skills you want to learn and get started right away. When the lockdown is over, you can even make it into a side hustle and earn some cash from that.

Catch up on book reading

If you have books on your shelf or on your tablet or phone that you need to get to, what better time can you read them but now?

Buy or borrow books, magazines, comics, and other books that catch your fancy and blow through them during this period. Your relaxed mind will thank you, and you’ll be happy with the extra knowledge you’ve gained.

Take up an exercise regimen
