CORONAVIRUS: HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OF QUARANTINE?

Hello everyone,



Nowadays our homes have become our playground, gym, movie theater and work office. With the rapid spread of the coronavirus our daily lives have shifted completely from what we once knew. Now more than ever we're beginning to appreciate the small things that we once took for granted. For example, just catching a breath of fresh air on my balcony makes me realize how much we need the sun, the air...our PLANET. It's so unfortunate to see our Earth crying-out through Covid-19, reminding us of the fact that we've totally forgotten to cherish it. But in moments like these, we can only learn and hopefully get back to our roots as humans. What's really MOST important? Why do you think this disease even started and continues to spread? 


While our planet recovers, we're left to stay at home. For most of us this is a bit difficult as we enjoy seeing friends, traveling to new places, being busy and getting things done. However, during the quarantine we can still make things happen! We can grow, explore, learn and connect. 💕

I've found it refreshing as I try each day to make the best of it! Most importantly, I've realized that no matter what, I'll always have my family. That's what has made this whole experience so lovely. Now is the time to strengthen relationships, to learn a new hobby, to give power to your creativity, to reflect on what you want in life...to ask yourself lots of questions!

If you're feeling down about the coronavirus and are in need of a few ideas to help you forget (even for a while) about the current news we face each day, this post is for YOU! 

1. YOGA TIME



Daily exercise is one of  the best ways to keep yourself physically and mentally strong. Since quarantine, I've begun changing up my work-out routine. Again, I have returned back to doing yoga to help repair my muscles and keep my mind at peace. Honestly, I've missed it so much and already feel a great difference. 

I follow Ali Kamenova's youtube videos for power yoga flows that are dynamic yet healing. She's incredible and I highly recommend checking her out. Even if you're a beginner, with ease you'll be able to advance and start enjoying the more intense practices. 

What has been your way of staying active at home? 

Also, while working-out from home, I've taken the time to really focus on my exercise. I make it a mission to tune out everything else. So far so good! It's a true blessing to have yoga as a distraction from any negatives. It heals, it rejuvenates, and it's the kind of start I look forward to each morning.    

2. FAMILY TIME 


                                  
With the closure of restaurants, shops and social events, quality time with your family is your savior. You might even start liking the people you live with 😂 hahaha! I know that I have definitely forgotten at times how fun my parents can actually be. Now that we're mostly at home, it has been nice having an audience for my comedy/dance nights. hahaha!  

You can play board games, watch movies, cook and drink together (only if you're over the age of 21 of course). How are you spending your quarantine family time? What do you enjoy doing most with them? 

The recent movie we watched is "Bombshell". If you have any other recommendations, please let me know?

3. SPA TIME 


   
You know how with our busy schedules before the coronavirus we had to squeeze in some relaxing time. Well, now we can open up our own spas at home! We have the time for a manicure, a massage, a facial, a soothing bath. 

In fact, I had a massage last night. Plus, each day I try to do something beauty related for myself. It makes me happy! There's no better feeling than taking care of yourself in every sense of the word. When was the last time you had a spa day in the comfort of your home?  

If you have a sister, spa time can become even more fun as you have a chat while you pamper up. That's exactly what my sister and I did! Staying at home never felt better!

4. JOURNALING/LEARNING TIME  


   
Look at staying inside and keeping safe as a positive. During this time you can read, learn a new skill or do some journaling. These things will help you grow even more as a person. Plus, you'll keep your brain cells functioning and alert. I wouldn't want this time to go to waste. It can be used wisely, help shape us even more as human beings.  

This is why I haven't stopped blogging. I enjoy writing and letting my creativity flow. Also, I like knowing that we can still connect through social media as we fight to prevent this virus and continue to pray it comes to an end soon. 

You can even start learning a new language or pick up one you've lost touch with years ago. With the internet at our fingertips, it's easy to explore new skills and hobbies. Just imagine if we didn't even have the internet to rely on...we'll be lost without any kind of connection. 
5. COOKING TIME



During quarantine you can turn into a chef or become close to one. This is your chance to experiment with new recipes, learn how to cook, or like me, enjoy your sister's cooking. I can't complain...it's way more delicious, plus, I get to be the judge!
😋 So far I think at the end of this virus, she can totally enter "Master Chef". 

What's something delicious you cooked recently? 

I, on the other hand, am a bit more impatient when it comes to cooking. I like making easy, simple things because when I'm hungry all I want is to eat and not to have to go through the many steps that it takes to create a meal. My specialties are oatmeal, eggs and sandwiches, and I make a killer cup of coffee. Basically the breakfast options.😂 

6. MEDITATION TIME



I'm one who loves upbeat music, but this past week I calmed down a bit and turned into meditation. It's so calming! As someone who has this much energy, relaxing music helps balance things out. My current favorite Spotify playlist is "Meditate to the Sounds of Nature". I have played it a countless times already. It has the ability to calm my mind each time. 


Every time it's different. Some days a meditation can lead up to 30 minutes, other times it continues up to an hour. It really depends on how you feel and how much time you think you need to center yourself. It's a great healer for negative thoughts or tough times like the one we're facing right now. 

In addition to meditation, I have found a few inspiring podcasts to listen to. "The School of Greatness" Lewis Howes, "On Purpose" Jay Shetty, "Pretty Big Deal" Ashley Graham. Do you know any other ones I should check out?


How have you been coping with staying at home? What new hobbies have you picked along the way?

  13. Hey Radi, hope the situation is not that bad in the US. These are definitely good days to reflect on how our actions and activities impact on the planet and in other lives, let's try to focus on the positive and on how new ideas can reinforce our bounds.

    These are definitely good ideas! I'm trying to exercise daily and prepare new meals that can help me to get creative ;)

  29. Yes trying times indeed. And people really do need to pay more attention to the earth and climate change and the rise of AI replacing jobs. Everyone is up and arms about potential %20 unemployment b/c of this outbreak--while Kevin Russo of the NY Times among others has predicted by 2030 a decade from now that %40 of all jobs world wide will be lost due to AI, add another decade and the first catastrophic effects of climate change will be kicking in. All of this happening together is going to be far worse then what is happening now. People better get woke real soon.

  41. These are such wonderful ways to spend our time at home! This is definitely an emotional time, but we do certainly have a lot to be grateful for, especially the people we love. I think we're very lucky to quaratine in an era with Facetime that allows us to spend time with our loved ones virtually. I love your tip about journaling! I don't get around to it very often, but when I do, I feel much more at peace :) I hope you are hanging in there!

I´ve never been bored in my life, I´m always busy in doing things or doing nothing ;- ) - I love to "be bored" from time to time, or making yoga, playing the piano, reading, writing - simply making the best of this time and hoping for a calmer and better future.
