Stay Home, Do This: Here Are The Top Five Things For You To Do When At Home

In the wake of the Corona Virus and the rather scary spread of Corvid 19, we’re here to tell you for the first time, to Stay Home, Do This. As a safer, more sensible version in the current time of Go Here Do This, we’ll ensure you’re still as amused about things around you, even if it means staying home. So, here are the top five things for you to do at home in Chennai! 

Wash, Scrub And Sing

Staying at home can get mind-numbing and boring and just sad. But before you get started on anything, we suggest, and so does the WHO, to wash your hands clean. That means washing, scrubbing, soaping your entire hand up to the wrists, and your fingers too. Apparently, you need to wash for at least 20 seconds each time. That means singing Happy Birthday, or the chorus of Backstreet’s Back, or Gloria Gaynor’s I Will Survive. The last is also motivational, so it’s our pick! But, hey! Don’t forget to save water by not leaving the tap on through your wash.

Eat, Cook, Love, Repeat

You don’t always need to step out for good food! Experiment with recipes that you’ve always wanted to try with the ingredients that you’ve got at home or order in. Delivery giants such as Swiggy & Zomato have issued advisories explaining the extra precautions they’re taking, such as if you’d like them to drop off the parcel at your doorstep to avoid contact - so even that’s great. Most restaurants are still delivering, so order from your trusted, loved ones. Follow Monika ManchandaNandita Iyer on Saffron Trail, Kishi AroraMama K Treats and Copper And Cloves, for amazing recipes.

Pick Up A Hobby...Finally

Yes, you can finally give time to those hobbies you’ve ignored for a while. Love DIY things? Make use of what you’ve got home (including old soap jars because guess what’s going to finish sooner than toilet paper?). You could also try and stay fit. Try to work out in your living rooms. There are tons of videos, apps, and more that tell you exactly how to go about doing a full workout inside your home. Fitness Blender is one such place on YouTube. Or Bipasha Basu’s older options. Just open YouTube and start knitting or stitching, if not working out!

Watch & Listen

Of course, after it all, you will want to unwind, right? Video streaming portals and podcasts should be your BFF! If you wanna keep things light, we suggest watching Schitt’s Creek, or the so-bad-its-good Love is Blind, or even Space Jam. We also think the new Homeland season is gripping, especially since it’s the last one! Plus, part two of To All The Boy’s I’ve Loved Before is out. If you desperately need a fresh take on life, listen to Vir Das’ “Be Stupid” podcast on Audible. You could also listen to Becoming by Michelle Obama! We love that KAST lets you watch the same shows with friends as if you’re in the same place! 

Shop On LBB

While we can’t tell you to go out for retail therapy, there is so much on LBB that you can buy. These places are local businesses, and they will not only be thankful for your shopping at these trying times, but we’re pretty sure that this really is the way to go in the future. A lot of the options on LBB are sustainable, or are home-run, making it better for the entire country’s economy in the long run. So support local, and Shop On LBB
