Creative Ways To Spend Time At Home During Covid Pandemic

Published On Feb 15, 2021 5:30 AM By Sakshi Aggarwal

In December 2019, the world was informed of a new pathogen, the SARS Cov-2 Coronavirus by the World Health Organization that reported cases of Covid-19 from China. Within 2 months, it was declared as a pandemic, signalling that it had spread globally at an astonishing pace. The novelty of the virus lay in its fast mutating character and resistance against all known treatments. The only known remedy to battle it has been phenomenal ‘lockdowns’ and a strict code of physical distancing that has put a stop to all outdoor activities and socialisation. Consequently, we have all been relegated to ‘work’ from our homes and quarantine to reduce the spread and contagion of COvid-19.

As the pandemic rages on, staying at home has become the ‘new normal’. In this article, we are going to look at how we can defeat boredom and ‘lockdown gloom’ by creatively utilizing our time at home. Let’s have a look at the following -

Creative Ways To Spend Time At Home During Covid Pandemic

The following is a list of 5 creative things that you can do at home during the covid pandemic -

1. Revamp Your Indoors -

For a long time, our hectic work schedules and tight deadlines had rendered us inept to pay attention to the organisation and co-ordination of our furnishings with its immediate surroundings at home. Perhaps, there can be no better time than this to turn a bane into a boon. Use your time while staying at home to bring out the artist in you and refurbish and refurnish your favourite rooms. You can paint your walls a new color, add a painting on it by yourself, and take inspiration from the plethora of DIY crafts found on the internet to give your home a creative and rejuvenating look.

2. Learn How To Cook -

If your pre-Corona days were all spent by ordering food from your favorite restaurants outside, you might want to utilize your lockdown days at home to learn to cook. Whether you are comfortable with a cooking pan or not, switching on a cooking channel on YouTube Channel and learning the basics of brewing a curry will be an accomplishment! Nowadays, there are many online cooking classes and projects as well where you can enroll yourself and learn to make delicious dishes, ranging from a simple soup to a gorgeous dessert.

3. Start A Home Garden -

For those of you who always enjoyed being around plants, you can creatively channelize your love and passion for your green friends to something more worthwhile. While you are at home during the Covid pandemic, use your spare time to get hold of some pots or recycle old boxes and canisters that you have at home into one and plant new seedlings in them. You can also colour your pots in bright shades to uplift your mood and surroundings, as your green friends start to grow. Gardening is also considered to be relaxing and this can be your daily de-stress mantra as you watch your plants grow into a beautiful efflorescence of leaves, tendrils, and flowers.

4. Try Out Something New -

While staying at home comes with its perks, it can also get very boring and gloomy when you’re not having the best of your days. Instead of listlessly whiling away time by wondering what to do, you can always learn something new! You can use this time to learn to sing or to jive to your favorite dance number; you can learn how to paint or how to click photos. Learning is a lifelong process and who knows, what you teach yourself during this pandemic might turn out to be your greatest hobby or passion in the future.

5. Organize Your Wardrobe -

‘Decluttering’ our social media handles to give it a more aesthetic look has been a popular trend for some time now. Why not apply it to your wardrobe and give it a visually appealing look? Creatively organize your formal wear according to a color gradient for Zoom meetings and stack up on your lounge wears that you can grab anytime you want. You can hang out your silks and meticulously pair your socks inside your wardrobe to give yourself a self-satisfaction that matches nothing less than a sense of accomplishment.
