In the fight against COVID-19, the Indian government has announced a nationwide lockdown. While staying at home gives you a break from the regular routine, you need to adjust to a new style of living until you can step out again.
This can be tough as you need things to fill what would otherwise be commute time or dance classes. It can be even more challenging if you have children to home-school. Hence,
Keep The Following Tips In Mind As You Cope With Staying Indoors
1. Wake Up At Your Regular Time
Although you have extra time to sleep, make it a point to not drift too far from your regular waking up time. Getting up early can help you prepare for the day ahead. It will also be easier for you to go back to the normal routine once the situation has passed. If you have children, encourage them to do the same.
2. Have A Routine In Place
It is important to not sit idle all day as it can make you worry or become restless. Instead, plan ahead, make a list of the activities that you want to do during the day. Maybe you want to help out with household chores, then read something for a while. If you have office work, complete it in the same time as you would usually do. Try to not be only engaged with your phones for most of the day.
3. Eat Healthy And Exercise
Having a routine for exercising can benefit you in many ways. It will boost your mood, keep your mind and body active, improve your immunity, and will keep you busy. It is also necessary to watch what you are eating. Fill up your plate with green vegetables and colourful fruits for balanced nutrition.
4. Keeping Your Children Busy
If you are a parent, you have to keep your children busy and happy as well. Try these things
- Have a routine in place for them. Decide what will be lunch time, activity time and study time.
- Let them study like it’s the school. Keep their books, stationery, etc. in place and set up a table so they can study.
- Encourage them to be creative. You can also sign them up for online courses.
Stay safe by maintaining good personal health hygiene and not stepping out unless absolutely necessary.
