Stay In Do This: Top 5 Things To Do While You're Staying At Home

We're in the middle of a pandemic virus. And since government precautionary measures include self-isolating and staying in, we thought we'll help you out. 

So, here are the top five things you can do while staying in.

Explore Art, History & Culture

If you're an art and culture buff, here's something you'll love. There are about 2,500 museus that you can tour virtually. Take a tour of the British Museum in London, Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam among others. Download Google's Art & Culture app (or install it as a Chrome widget on your desktop) to take virtual museum tours, virtual street art tours, zoom into paintings to see brushstrokes, check out photo essays and take up trivia quizzes to test your knowledge of culture. There's something for everyone.

Read Your Childhood Comics

Reading is the best hobby to pick up during quarantine, and if you agree or have kids, you can check out Amar Chitra Katha is offering Tinkle for a month's free subscription to their digital edition. So you can read your old favourites like Supandi, Chacha Chaudhry and more. Or join an online book club, and enjoy reading new books and exploring more authors with like-minded people. 

Try Online Therapy

Locked up alone, with a partner or family. It is natural to feel anxious, uncertain, lonely and also triggered. Staying inside can be challenging because it also makes you look inside your mind amplifying all hidden anxieties of past, present, and future. Don't let this period get better of you. Connect with some of the best online therapists in India at over call, chat, video or even email. You just need to go to their website and book your appointment. This is the best time to work on yourself and your relationship.

Pick Up A Hobby

Cook, learn to do yoga, or even learning how to play an instrument could be fun during these times, with not much except house chores to do. Bare Necessities, a pan-India Bangalore-based brand has DIY stuff that you can try. The big plus: It's all zero waste! So make something completely new with old stuff at home. 

Get Your Creative Juices Flowing

Get creative! Because you may not get time to later. Utilise being at home by letting your creative juices flow. Check out The Alipore Post which has poems, written work and other art by lesser-known artists. Get inspired and perhaps create something that you can share on your social media too.
