Gathering memories at once in thoughts is overwhelming. The flow of memories in the mind makes you excited and refill the energy. When you can spread love and energy that you have within, just dont wait.
Share the joy by gathering the memories into a collage. You have many apps that allow you to do digital collages. If you want to be more creative, then make a video and show it off to your dear ones. This is a lovely idea for a woman to do for her family, friends or someone special.
2. Focus on Fitness – Alive And Well
Are you a fitness freak? The fitness freaks are more enthusiastic during the quarantine period and it’s great. They are not to give up on their fitness goals. If you are one among them, then also inspire your family to be like you.
Take up the role of fitness trainer. Inspire them with your knowledge, focus and energy. Teach your family the simple exercises. Ask them to join you for the workout and make it a healthy family which is very much needed now.
Exercising is the best way to boost immunity. It enables your body to fight against the health issues and life threatening infections.

3. Read Out The Stories – The Informal Library
Reading the interesting novels and stories for yourself is simply great. But reading out a story for your loved ones is extremely joyful. When any of them come to you saying “I am bored” then pick an interesting story and read it out for them.
You can also read a story together. The thrillers, fun oriented and feel good books are great for this idea. When you are reading a story, time doesn’t stay still. It runs and leaves you happy, satisfied by the end of it. This way you are making your house an informal and fun library!
It may also make you feel the nostalgia if you did back then in school or college days. I would suggest switching from netflix to books is a super cool change for you during quarantine.
4. Play Some Silly Games – Indulge In Fun
I guess, it’s been ages since you played any silly games with your family or friends. We are all engaged in leading serious lives and taking ourselves away from such fun.
So, utilize this time and play some silly games. The games that you fought over who is the winner and catch holding the cheater cock- these are the games that take you back to really golden days. Gather your family members and start an old game.
You can play digital games with your friends. We modern people do this but now it goes a bit extra and that’s okay!
5. Bring a Progressive Change In Yourself
There was always something that you wanted to work on but had no time for it? Simple changes like controlling your temper, managing time and many more. Now, you have plenty of time to adopt the change.
The daily stress that you had with traveling, work, targets never let you be what you wanted to. The busy life stopped you from being or doing something better. This the chance you must grab without leaving it.
And it is not a piece of cake to work on a positive change or quality. You will need some time to infuse it into yourself. Now, you have more time and no excuses to be good!
6. Detox Your Home – Clean House, Clean Mind
We are unaware of the toxins that are filled in our own space of living. Dust and insects occupy corners which don’t notice. Dusting the furniture and cleaning the roof is a must do. But home detoxing is eliminating the toxins and dirt that is settled without your notice. This can affect your health. As you have enough time, just detox your home bit by bit and make it a healthy place. Home must be comfortable and healthy as well.
You don’t have to beat the clock for this task of cleaning and detoxing your house. Do it a bit daily!
Do you agree with this? If yes, just remove the dirt out of your house in this long leisure time!
7. Decorate The Walls – Bright It Up
Even the walls are bored to stay without any change. So, be an enthusiast and go splash some colour to the plain walls. Women who are good at papers crafts can create hangings for wall decor. If you are good at painting, then do the wall painting.
Take off the old paintings and decor from your walls with your own creativity. Self made art is great for your walls and quarantine is the best time to experiment these things.
You have creative ideas to decorate your idea with simple items. Wall paintings, DIY wall hangings and photo galleries are great for wall decor. Here are a few more to try out!
8. Love Your Skin and Hair More
DIY face masks and packs are watched but not tried. You are so exhausted on normal days that you don’t even want to try anything new or good for your skin. You are happy applying the gels and moisturizers.
Now it’s time to do something better for your skin. You can’t even complain that you have no free hours for skin care. You have enough and you also have caring tips for your skin. Love your skin more and more during the quarantine period.
Your skin is a healing as it is not exposed to pollution. And the home remedies and tips are extra care that you can’t miss. That too when you have ample time in your hands.

You are asked to keep distance from people but not virtually. Just make use of technology and get in touch with your old friends. If you had an idea of having a long conversation with your cousin and couldn’t do it due to busy life, now you can make it possible.
Remember that we all are physically quarantined but not mentally. So, explore through social media. If you remember, you said to many “let’s keep in touch”. But lost the touch without an intention. Life was such- busy, hectic, non stop tasks. Now, it’s time to get in touch with everyone who matters to you a bit or more. How well are you connecting to people during this quarantine?

Are you a poser? If you are or not, you must try a photoshoot session during the quarantine. Try a new look and click your pictures. This is how you give quality time for yourself. This is self love and there is no limit or it ain’t silly.
Photoshoot in your own and comfortable space. Dress up and accessorize like it’s a party. As you are surrounded with comfort and love, show off your happiness in the pictures you get clicked. If you are choosing to wear casual outfits, still you can sizzle with your bright smile and attitude. Keep on clicking and discover the new you with a perfect photoshoot.
It is not passing the time to kick off the boredom but to capture the best version of yourself. If best appearance is your routine then let then why don’t you appear best of best when you have ample time. Agree with me?

When you get to know about an update, you feel enough reading the headline. But that is not all!
You must read all about what you know a little. Make a research and know the ins and outs about it. Knowledge is power. So, gain more knowledge to gain more power.
A few days back you were in a hurry to board the train or bus. Still managed to stay updated with the news, trends and what was happening around the world. Now, you have several hours where you don’t have to rush. But sit, relax and be updated of what you are interested in. It can be about science, culture, anything that keeps you going, can excite you to research more and more.
You are locked down but not to stop gaining knowledge!

Music and dance is the best to add fun to your leisure time. So, keep some snacks ready and then make it a dance floor. When there is unlimited music, you don’t feel bored staying indoors.
