In the wake of the Corona Virus, and the rather scary spread of Covid 19, we’re here to tell you about things that you can take up, while you're home. As a safer, and more sensible version of Go Here Do This, we've come up with 'Stay In, Do This', in the current times. We’ll ensure you’re still as amused about things around you, even if it means staying indoors. So, here are the top five things for you to do in Mumbai, from home!
Stay In, Do This: Here Are The Top Five Things For You To Do When At Home
Wash, Scrub, Sanitize, Repeat
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 you 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! Don’t forget to save water too, by not leaving the tap on through your wash.
Order In From Trustworthy Places
Most of you may not have the time to cook, or may be living alone, not knowing how to whip up a meal for yourself. So if you wish to order in, know that 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, that’s possible. Most restaurants are still delivering, so order from your trusted, loved ones.

Watch, and 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. You could also give The Loudest Voice a try. If you're into Hindi content, check out The Body on Netflix. 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 let’s 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.
